Hi my name is Fred.
I have a mission : that is to create a large music library on spotify with playlists per year based on what songs were in the charts that year.
Good or bad songs, it doesn’t matter. If it is in the charts of that year, it’s in de playlist of that year.
The playlists from 1957 – 1964 will be based on the monthly charts of the (not existing anymore) dutch magazine ‘Muziek Parade’.
The playlists from 1965 till now, will be based on the charts of ‘De Nederlandse Top 40’.
I already created playlists for 1961 – 1970.
I just created the playlist ‘The sixties : 1960’
I start with the songs from january 1960. I will add songs on a regular base till all songs that have been up in the chart that year are in it.
