With literally millions of songs at our disposal via streaming services, how do you keep track of all the music your into and keep track of new releases?

I make playlists of songs I like but they usually end up becoming really long.

I also keep a playlist of my 40 favourite songs from my chart.

What do y'all do?


I feel like there is so much I like that I lose track of some of it.

I still download music from itunes and have a going to work playlist of songs i enjoy and change them on a weekly basis taking out the tracks im bored of. I usually have around 15-20 tracks.

I also download albums and listen to them each week making a chart up for both at the end of the week. I still work Monday-Sunday!

I also have a record player and buy vinyls of classic albums once a month.

I've been really into Spotify these past few months, when it was a very rare occasion for me to use it previously. I used to buy music off iTunes a lot, but now I'm thinking about limiting that, maybe only buying the things I really want to own and listening to everything else on Spotify or YouTube.

I also use last.fm to keep track of what I listen to, but my stats are inaccurate in places so am thinking of resetting it, actually.

Just giant playlists, which I will get back when my computer's fixed. I've been living off Spotify so now my music taste is a little more fresh.

I use Spotify for playlists to keep track of everything, and it is my largest music source these days. I will download songs off iTunes though for them to go on my iPod when I have a bit of a spending spree every few months. I also have physical CD and record formats for albums I REALLY like.

Having a personal chart was a really great way to keep on top of new songs I like, should reboot that in 2016.

I have one long playlist which includes all of my current favourites at the top (in a rough order), followed by a load of new songs I've downloaded and want to listen to, followed by all the new albums I've downloaded or bought recently that I need to listen to.

I have tons of other playlists for my all time faves, faves of each year etc...and I pretty much split my listening time 50/50 between old and new stuff.

I usually just remember them off the top of my head and search them into YouTube to listen to, and when I listen to a song a couple of times YouTube puts it on my homepage so I can just click on it, but after reading this thread I've been inspired to start using Spotify more.

I do have a playlist of a few random songs on my laptop which I sometimes put on but that's mostly full of songs that're a few months old and not really my type any more.

I now intend to go back to using Spotify like I did in early 2015.

I store all my music on my iPod, and make playlists on that. I plug it into the computer and listen to all my music through it too.

(this reminds me, should back it up soon)

I use Spotify a lot, especially to discover new music. I also kinda use it to "test run" albums, like if I like one song by a particular band or artist, I'll add the whole album that it's from to my library, if I then really like the album I'll buy a physical copy of it and add it to my iTunes as well, if I end up only really liking one song then there's a good chance I'll purchase it through iTunes, I tend to buy EPs through iTunes too since they're not as available physically the way full albums are. I've bought the odd album on iTunes but it just doesn't feel right not having it sitting on a rack with your other CDs but its still part of your digital collection tongue.gif

iTunes is still the centre, to keep a permanent record of all the tracks I have at my disposal, otherwise I'd easily forget a lot, through CDs or buying them online. Which is probably more than I want to listen to but I have plenty of tracks there now. I have a few dedicated playlists for good shuffles.

I've just started using Spotify a bit more regularly to listen to a few albums I've meaning to get around, I then save them so that if I ever get the chance and I liked them enough I can add them to iTunes. Other than that I use Youtube a lot to check out songs and make a note of them if I want to add them to iTunes.

I do exactly this biggrin.gif (apart from buying physicals though)

I've got close to 13000 songs on iTunes, (a large amount of it I actually bought on CD or digitally over 4 or 5 years now, most of the rest is from music swaps with friends or Iz) and that's after I cut out a whole load in 2014, whatever I want to listen to, it's usually there. If it's not I obtain it, why start streaming when I've got such a huge collection?

I have Spotify premium and I use Spotify a lot since The Beatles discography is on there. I still discover new music on the old fashioned way the radio. And sometimes on social media.

I just use my iPod to keep track.

I use Spotify only for occasional songs, so nothing to keep track of.
