#YTR: Holiday Edition, pt 4
Time for the weekly game of YouTube Roulette.
How it works:
I click on a suggested video from YouTube and then make a playlist using the ‘Up Next’ songs.
Pretty simple, and the songs will almost always be different each and every time.
It’s a great way to learn about new artists and tunes, and refresh the memory of tunes from days gone by.
** Note: I switched up my own rules just a bit. If the up next song is by the same artist as the one before, It is skipped. This will help give more variety to the playlist I think. Also, if there are regional restrictions, that video is skipped as well.
*** Since this is December, I’m letting YouTube start off with it’s recommendations a little bit different. A few months ago, I noticed YouTube putting categories at the top of the home page. One of my categories is Christmas Music. So… I’ll be starting with a recommendation from that section.
Today’s Roulette Playlist:
Ray Stevens - Santa Claus Is Watchin’ You
Bryan Adams - Christmas Time
Paul McCartney - Wonderful Christmastime
Perry Como - (There’s No Place Like) Home For The Holidays
Bing Crosby - Winter Wonderland
The Piano Guys - Angels We Have Heard On High
Carrie Underwood - Away In A Manger
Chuck Berry - Run Rudolph Run
Jim Reeves - An Old Christmas Card
Libera - God Rest You Merry Gentlemen
Okay, so YouTube wanted to stray a bit.. But in keeping with the theme for this month, I kept bringing it back to Christmas tunes.
See you again soon! Share with me your thoughts about this playlist. If you’d like to join in this fun game of going down the YouTube rabbit hole - feel free! All I ask is that you share your link in the comments so that I and others can come visit.
It’s December so I can go ahead and tell you my wild plan for Wednesdays beginning in January. Why tell you about this now? Well… simply because I want you to play along.
Introducing ‘Weekly Song Challenge’
Weekly Song Challenge was inspired by an online game where people fill in the blanks using a song title or artist. I always get a kick out of this game, and wanted to bring it here as an interactive blog hop.
How it will work:
Each week, I will provide a list of 3 topics or themes.
You come up with 1 song for each of the 3 themes.
Now, I know several of you like to plan ahead, so I’ve got a document prepared where you can find the upcoming themes..
Hope you join me! The more the merrier as they say…
