Each year Spotify does a number of fun playlists in support of Pride weekend. With this being the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, they pulled out all the stops.
Not surprisingly, there is a lot of overlap between these playlists and songs that are great for partner dancing. And I’m not just talking about disco music. I’ve been listening to several of these playlists including Pride Classics and Disco Fever. The surprise is that it wasn’t until the end of Pride month that it occurred to me that it would be fun and possibly useful to cross reference some of the Pride playlists with the music4dance catalog.
But better late than never. Click here to see the full list. You can get to the pride catalog anytime by going to the “Music” menu, choosing the “Tags” option and then finding the “Pride” button. Clicking on that will pop up a menu that will let you list all the songs tagged as “Pride.” I’ve also added tags for the specific playlists that Spotify built, so you can use the same method to get to the Disco Fever, Pride Classics or Fierce playlists.
Remember, there is a lot of subjectivity to what someone finds to be a danceable song. So please sign in and express your opinion by voting on that for your favorite songs and dances.
If you’re a premium member you can see the full Spotify lists, even the ones that we didn’t already have cross-referenced, by clicking the “Change Search” button on the results and then choosing “Not categorized by dance” and then “Search.” Then you could go and add what you would dance to any of the songs that are uncategorized.
As always, I’d love to hear your feedback.
