Music is a data dump in the age of streaming, and most of us are passive listeners who don’t have time to find new stuff. Let us save you from another cold algorithm: We’ve curated a nerdy and urgent Spotify playlist of 360 essential songs from 2017.
The music spans all the popular Western genres, and required eight humans to assemble. It’s a vibrant quilt of a mixtape that you can listen to in a day. As the meme goes: If you play SZA’s “Prom” at exactly 12:39am on on New Year’s Eve, Taylor Swift’s “New Year’s Day” will end at exactly midnight. Start 2018 properly.
The 2017 Long Player, a Daily Dot tradition since 2012, is here to bring you home.
Thanks to mix contributors Joshua Bradshaw, Jay Hathaway, Blake Hurtik, John Meller, Austin Powell, Tara Seetharam, and Harrison Yeager.
