Once again, hoddlers, by the time many of you read this your much-miled HIC will once again be on the road. This time he’ll be heading to the great north, otherwise known as Connecticut, for the Easter Weekend.
Which reminds me of a hoddle some time ago - and that’s driving tunes.
A four-hour-plus drive requires good music if there is no company to be had. And as your HIC is driving solo along the New Jersey Turnpike (among other roads, highways etc) on Friday he will be in need of some good tunes.
I created my famous ‘Drivetime USA’ playlist a few months back, and it looked like it needed some updating. So I chucked in a whole bunch more tunes for myself to keep things fresh on the trip there and - more importantly - on the trip back.
Which reminded me again that I needed to update the Track of the Day Spotify playlist ... And after a few months it’s finally fresh — here you go!
Here’s a snapshot of the playlist so far:
- Number of songs: 292
- Total listening time: 21 hours
- Longest song: Upper Egypt & Lower Egypt Medley, by Pharaoh Sanders (16:16)
- Shortest song: Mystery Dance, by Elvis Costello (1:35)
- Most featured artists: Charles Mingus (16 songs), Grateful Dead (7), Haim (6), Patti Smith (6), Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers (6)
Are there any music styles or artists you want featured in TOTD more often? Fear not, list them here!
