With the announcement by the team at 8tracks that unlimited streaming is back (in part due to subscriptions and ads and all that) I thought I’d drop a few mentions about the two dozen+ playlists I’ve had stored there for awhile. Most of them are fandom based, some just for fun, a lot of them in regards to my Dragon Age RP stuff. Still, all good if you like a variety of music (like me).
You can find me on 8tracks as Cherithe (an account name I have a number of places). Depending on what you’re into, let me offer a few places to start.
A) Hey — Mary Poppins is coming out sometime in the next year, right? Were you always a fan of whatever secrets were behind Mary & Bert’s relationship? No? Cool… me either. But you know if you like old timey-eque music with what is perhaps a bend toward the romantic, check out Jolly Holliday. This literally came about because some friends and I were reminiscing that we’d all at some point growing up thought that Mary and Bert were in love.
B) You want my favorite of the list? Check out War is Never Cheap Here, a playlist to accompany the fanfic that a friend and I co-wrote with the same name. I still regularly listen to this playlist because I love the songs we put on it so much. This is the only playlist on the list with cover art made by someone other than myself.
C) Want something random? Years and years ago for a fandom exchange I made a playlist for someone writing a Forever Knight fic. It’s titled A Son’s Denial, which I believe was also the name of the fic — although I’ve long since forgotten the name of the person or the exchange.
D) Do you like water themes or songs about ships or just good rock songs that occasionally take a turn for the melancholy? Cool. ME TOO. They’re my jam. If so, check out Where I’m Coming From a playlist about two pirates that’re a bit like siblings, and the very best of friends, neither of which really knows how to speak their feelings but they just know they other understands.
Okay, that’s a good start. There’s 27 playlists there in total and those don’t at all include the playlists I’ve put up elsewhere in the years that 8tracks streaming has been useless. If need something to listen to, there’s plenty.
