Listen to This July 4th Playlist If You Have Complicated Feelings About America

Listen to Our Playlist While You Write

Writing is 1% writing, 1% staring into space, and 98% doing little errands to “prepare” for writing. My favorite method of not writing is to compose a very specific playlist to “soundtrack” the thing that I’m writing. If you go hunting for the right music to write to, sorry, I’ve just ruined your excuse: here is…Read more...

Scrub Up With the Lifehacker Bathtime Playlist for Adults

When my baby daughter was getting grumpy in the bathtub, and I put TLC’s “No Scrubs” on Spotify, I knew I had something special to share with the world.

Rediscover Your Favorite Songs With Lifehacker's Cover Song Playlist

Back in the day, all the big singers shared the same songbook: a canon of folk tunes, jazz standards, and borrowed Broadway numbers.

Enjoy This 'Epic Trailer Version' Playlist

I love overly dramatic cover songs, the kind you hear in movie trailers where some lady is stage-whispering “He did the mash, he did the Monster Mash” while the Inception sound blasts over shots of a robot wizard tornado. I play them in two moods: feeling extremely dramatic and pumped up, or feeling goofy. So I took a…Read more...

The One Hit Wonders Nostalgia Playlist

Just because a song is old doesn’t mean it will trigger nostalgia. If you keep Beyoncé in regular rotation, listening to “Crazy in Love” probably won’t take you back to 2003 every time. But I’ve found a kind of music that’s way more likely to trigger nostalgia: the one hit wonder.Read more...
