Spotify app turns song titles into Valentine's Day poetry

spotify playlist poetry

Valentine's Day is fast approaching, which means it's time to start writing poetry and compiling mixtapes. Fortunately, Spotify's Playlist Poetry lets you kill both lovebirds with one stone. The app, announced yesterday, invites users to create poems entirely from song titles, and share the resulting playlist with their Special Someone. You can search Spotify's database for a specific word or phrase in a given title, and arrange the results into verse using a word magnet-like interface.

The emphasis here is on words, rather than music. You can't search by artist, album, or any field other than song title, which can result in some unintentionally strange or nonsensical playlists. It's not exactly a new concept, but Playlist Poetry certainly makes it easier to visualize and construct your words of affection — or antipathy, as the case may be.
