Spotify Playlists are extremely my shit

Performer and writer Grace Spelman on her obsession with ultra-specific playlists.

Like mix CDs and mixtapes before them, playlists are labors of love. And considering they don't require “burning” or the use of a dual tape deck, now almost anyone can get in on the thrill of making them. But no matter how many great “roadtrip” or “cleaning the house” song collections you may have tied to your Spotify account, it’s a safe bet that none of them match up to the ultra-specific playlist masterpieces performer and writer Grace Spelman makes in her spare time. In this episode of Extremely My Shit, Spelman explains how she channels her love of music into making playlists with themes like “2000s songs with opening dialogue,” “Somebody goes ‘uh’,” and “Pairs of songs with eerily similar beginnings.” Watch her talk about her obsession above, and listen to one of her playlists below.
