Do you make playlists on YouTube, Spotify, or your favorite music app? I got in the habit of it earlier this year and it’s become a sort of ritual for each new season and holiday.
I’ve shared my back to school playlist on social media and decided it would be fun to create a printable playlist page that can be used with a printed bullet journal or digital planner.
Why I make playlists
It started as a random idea to make a YouTube playlist of songs about the sun for summer. I enjoyed having a “soundtrack” for my day and I listened to it on and off all summer when I needed some background noise. (When the kids were gone it was silent; when they were here, it was the Hamilton soundtrack 24/7.)
Later as back to school season rolled around, I decided it was time for a new playlist. For this one, the idea was to find some peppy songs to wake the kids up in the morning.
I think making a playlist is a fun way to change up the music you’re listening to and set the mood for the season you’re in. Whether that’s a literal or metaphorical season.
How to make a playlist
When I make a playlist, I search for songs in a couple of places – YouTube, Spotify, and Google. Sometimes I get a song in my head and look for related songs. Sometimes I search for other people’s playlists and pick my favorites from several lists.
Here are a few playlist ideas:
- Holidays or seasons
- Party background music
- Relaxing or meditation songs
- Motivational and energizing songs
- Music to wake up or fall asleep to
- Workout soundtrack
- Songs for a rainy day
- Favorites from a certain decade
- Songs with a theme, such as the moon or dancing
I’ve shared some of my favorites on Instagram:
- Time songs for Daylight Saving
- Cheerful optimistic songs
- Quirky romance songs
- Summer poolside songs
- Halloween candy songs
- Punny Thanksgiving songs
- Thankful & grateful Thanksgiving songs
- Calm & comforting songs
- Winter songs
- New Years Eve songs
