January - YouTube Roulette

I’ve been trying to figure out what to do for the 2nd Free Choice week of the month. So, while I work it out in my head, how about a round of YouTube Roulette? This will also give me an opportunity to try a suggestion given by John at Sound of One Hand Typing on how to conquer the YouTube dilemma of not being able to embed playlists.

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.

Today’s Roulette Playlist:

  1. AC/DC - Realize

  2. Ram Jam - Black Betty

  3. Foo Fighters - No Son Of Mine

  4. Kansas - Carry On Wayward Son

  5. Deep Purple - Child In Time

  6. KISS - I Was Made For Lovin’ You

  7. Sweet - The Ballroom Blitz

  8. ZZ Top - Gimme All Your Lovin’

  9. The Hollies - Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress)

  10. Free - All Right Now

  1. Mary,

    I listened to your wonderful playlist while pulling together a few posts. You always bring good mewsic to the dance floor and this classic rock playlist is a fine example of your excellent mewsic taste. Thanks for putting the oogie woogie in my boogie this morning, my friend. Have a wonderful day! You can count on me to join you for more mewsic on Wednesday!

  2. Excellent playlist! 👌 A roulette winner, for sure.

  3. Such a fun and cool roulette. Thanks for sharing it. I always enjoy it.

  4. YouTube sure did a good job of picking the songs this week (with a little help from you)! Great list!

  5. This was a nice rockin' playlist. Strangely, I knew one song and not the next, then I knew one song and not the next (for the most part). All Right Now is one of my favs - we have (somewhere) a nice extended version. I'm not sure I've ever heard it live. You Tube put together a good one for you (with your edits).
