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:
AC/DC - Realize
Ram Jam - Black Betty
Foo Fighters - No Son Of Mine
Kansas - Carry On Wayward Son
Deep Purple - Child In Time
KISS - I Was Made For Lovin’ You
Sweet - The Ballroom Blitz
ZZ Top - Gimme All Your Lovin’
The Hollies - Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress)
Free - All Right Now
