Play me. Play this. Or my Spotify playlists compiled...

This year I have mostly been making playlists. Over on the DiS site we've done a weekly Spotifriday playlist. However, these 'ere playlists come in all shapes and sizes, with various themes and wotnot. I thought compiling them in one place might be useful for anyone looking for some musical guidance or simply for anyone wanting to save time making a playlist by slinging on one of mine.

If you haven't yet installed Spotify, it's free (if you don't mind a few ads) and available most places now (Americans I think can pay to use it but I might be wrong?!). 

- My Top 40 Songs of the Year
- My Top 10 Albums of the Year (plus Grizzly Bear which isn't available)
- Drowned in Sound's Top 50 Albums of 2009 (or if that's overwhelming, try the 2 tracks-from-each sampler)
- Drowned in Sound's Albums of 2009 - longlist
- Best compilations of 2009

The Noughties
- My 123 mixtape adventure

This is a pretty wild idea, and I really dig it. Out of the games so far, I definitely liked the M83 one the best, probably because "Intro" is such a great song to inspire a cool game. The M83 tunes that Morgan Kibby contributes to are usually my favorite and "Intro" is no exception. Cool stuff, Pitchfork now let's see if they actually develop this instead of milking it for what it's worth and then forgetting about it (can anyone say Altered Zones?)
