[Playlists] Feel Good Friday Playlist - not so feel good

[Playlists] Feel Good Friday Playlist - not so feel good

TW - Robin Thicke, rape, blurred lines

 

 

 

I was listening to Spotify's playlist 'Feel Good Friday' and Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' came on. I don't know about you, but this song doesn't make me 'feel good' in any way. It is misogynistic, offensive, and essentially about rape. This playlist is created by Spotify, and I think that Spotify should take responsibility in ensuring that this song doesn't appear on their playlists.

This is a personal issue with you. I personally don't think the song is worse than every other pop song. It at least has a light, happy sound, which is why it is in there probably. 

 

I don't think it's a good idea to use the idea part of the board to cry about "misogynistic" songs in playlists. If there is a song that you don't like, simply skip it 😉

@ih2 Hi, and thanks for your contribution! I've moved this post to the Content Questions board, as this is where we can discuss the contents of Spotify's Browse playlists (as the Idea Exchange is not the best place to suggest additions or removals to these playlists). 

 

At this time I'd like to open up the thread to commenters to see how they feel about the song. Thanks!
