The Best Playlists to Record for Your Next Holiday Party

Your holiday party checklist is almost complete, but you’re not quite there until you settle on the perfect music to set the mood!

We’ve hand-selected 5 playlists and music stations for every kind of atmosphere this party season. Record and save them all with Replay Music, and expand your collection for many holidays to come.

1. A Very Jazzy Holiday

Crafted by professional Jazz musician Alex Norris, this playlist combines the pure sophistication and warm tones that any upscale celebration requires. Perfect for any wine-and-cheese gathering, holiday formal, or laid-back evening with the family.

2. Walking in a Music Wonderland

Steer clear of Christmas-specific songs and focus on the depth of the winter season with this stunning winter-themed playlist. The soft acoustics and sweet tones will add warmth to the chilliest season of the year, and your party guests will never feel more cozy.

3. Rock Songs for Holiday Music Haters

Classic music and indie lovers will find solace in this rock-inspired Christmas playlist. From the captivating Darlene Love to The Kinks, and My Morning Jacket to Bob Dylan, this roundup of rock-and-roll for the holidays will have your party guests tapping their toes all night long.

4. Warm & Traditional Holiday Tunes

Chock-full of classics like Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas,” and fresh pop hits like Justin Bieber’s “Mistletoe,” this playlist is for the more traditional party setting. It’s ideal for blasting on the speakers Christmas morning, enjoying a dressed-up evening with friends, or having a solo celebration in your apartment during the holidays.

5. The Festivus Station

Based on Seinfeld’s offbeat pseudo-holiday, Pandora launched a station dedicated to Festivus. The station will feature some knock-off holiday music, along with various bits of comedic relief from the creators of the show. So, break out your traditional Festivus aluminum pole – this is truly a holiday music station for the rest of us.

Access the Festivus station.

Celebrating Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductees 2015

Has there ever been a more exciting time to love music? Despite the music industry’s loud, long-standing complaints, the answer is ‘No!’

Today we have more artists making more music that’s more accessible to more fans than ever before. But just because platforms like YouTube, Spotify and Pandora have made music listening more convenient than ever, and services like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have given bands new ways of supporting themselves, creating new work and funding concert tours, it doesn’t mean it’s all ‘out with the old’ in the world of sharps and flats.

The 2015 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony last Sunday highlights this strange new intersection of old established grandeur and new digital access. Below, we’ve collected some of the 2015 inductees, compiled some of their greatest performances from around the web. Check out the best way to capture them for keeps in our Supported Site Directory.

Happy listening!

  • Ringo Starr

    There are so many mythic stories and timeless Beatles performances it’s hard to pick just one. But for the true connoisseur, Ringo has his own mythology. Before the Rock Hall of Fame induction performance, it had been years since bandmates Paul and Ringo had played together. Their set at the ceremony is fun and includes cameos from other 2015 inductees. The YouTube video here is shot on some lucky audience member’s phone but the audio comes through clearly. Fire up Replay Media Catcher for the video and use Replay Music to save the track for your kids’ iPod.

 

 

 

 

 

Check out the full list of this year’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees here, have a listen to this excellent YouTube mix featuring songs from each of the 2015 inductees, rock out to this 500-song Spotify playlist on the sounds that shaped Rock & Roll, or get into the best live Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum performances playlist.

Remember, you can capture and keep music from YouTube, Pandora, and Spotify with Replay Music.

Paramore — Best Rock Song “Ain’t It Fun”

Ridiculously catchy and hard to hate, this track from Paramore has everything you want in straight-forward pop rock. No fuss, only fun.

Kendrick Lamar — Best Rap Song / Performance “i”

One of the most positive hip-hop songs to hit the air waves this year. Kendrick is known for his poignancy and his third studio album is one of the most anticipated in 2015. Keep your ears open!

St. Vincent — Best Alternative Music Record “Strange Mercy”

Indie goddess, St Vincent (Annie Clark) walked away with an award for her haunting record and lurching sound on “Strange Mercy”. Here’s one of our favorite tracks from the album, “Cruel”:

Pentonix — Best Instrumental Arrangement “Daft Punk”

The a capella group, Pentonix, goes into audio soundscapes of the last year, sampling seven different Daft Punk songs. Using a mixture of insane vocal and beatboxing talent, this hardworking crew deserve the nod.

“Twenty Feet From Stardom” — Best Music Film

This is a featured performance from one of the stars of this amazing documentary (which you can stream here on Netflix and record with Replay Video Capture 7). Showcasing the talent of background singers throughout history, this is a must-watch movie and must-listen soundtrack.

The End of Grooveshark Recording?

It looks like Grooveshark is in a heap of trouble, according to this article in Ars Technica.

A judge found that Grooveshark employees were encouraged to upload thousands of songs to the service. As far as I understand the legality, if users upload it’s OK for Grooveshark, but it’s pretty obviously a copyright violation if employees of the company are doing it – especially when directed by management. This violates the basic rule of thumb of copyright law: Don’t redistribute other people’s stuff without their permission.

There’s still a lot of great music sites out there (which Replay Media Catcher and Replay Music record from nicely). But Grooveshark is one of my favorites.
