On The Table Read, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, this is how to discover your new favourite Chistmas songs!
Are you waiting impatiently for December to start just to hear the first tunes of Last Christmas? Or maybe quite the opposite, you’re taking part in the globetrotting competition called Whamageddon, and you’re eager to avoid hearing the song until Christmas Eve? This is how you can find new Christmas hits.
Discover music with Daily Mixes on Spotify
Spotify, the giant of streaming music service, uploads 60,000 new tracks every day. One of the most comfortable functions of Spotify is Daily Mixes, which are created based on the recent songs you’ve been listening to. It’s quite an easy way of finding Christmas hits similar to the ones you already know.
To find your Daily Mixes, go to Home or Your Library. Remember, the algorithms are regularly updated, however, it takes Spotify two weeks to learn what songs should be on your similar songs lists. You’re in luck as that means you can begin listening to Christmas songs in November to prepare for the holiday season in December.
Start Radio with Spotify
As befits the leader of streaming music service, Spotify has more functions which may help us discover music appropriate to our taste. It’s called Start Radio, and you may simply start the search for Christmas songs similar to your favourite ones.
First, hover your mouse over your favorite Christmas song, and click the three-dot icon appearing to select Start Radio. After that Spotify will create a list of songs similar to those who usually listen too. It’s not really known how the algorithm works, yet it makes it much easier for you to create a playlist of your best songs for the Christmas season.
Tracking similar songs with Songs Like X
It’s really hard to think of a simpler way to find songs similar to those which you usually listen to than using the Songs Like X website. It’s enough to open the website, write the title of the song which you’re fond of to see a list of 50 songs similar to the one you have chosen.
It’s fun because the lists are generated randomly, so typing the same title twice or more doesn’t mean you’ll see the same recommendations every time. Imagine how many new titles you might get typing the same title every day – that’s where the fun begins!
Remember to save the songs on Spotify with one click of the button visible at the bottom of the list and share the Christmas spirit with your friends.
Google Search will find everything
There are lots of applications and websites able to help you find songs similar to your loved ones, and to develop your playlists. Oftentimes, the simplest solutions go unnoticed, which is why Google Search isn’t the first option on your list of options for new songs discovery. But that’s what Google Search is made for!
How to do it? Open Google Search, type “Christmas songs similar to X song” and Google algorithm will find some suggestions for you. After clicking on the chosen song, you will know where to listen to it, and you will even see the lyrics. Relevant pages shown by Google give you the chance to explore more music similar to your taste.
Youtube – the power of simple solutions
Besides thousands of music videos, YouTube offers a special YouTube Music app for listening to music. The platform also makes use of special algorithms, showing you recommendations of similar Christmas songs.
You don’t need to do much to find songs similar to the title you type in the search bar – together with the song you’ve been looking for, you will see a list of similar songs. Researching them may take you long hours of Christmas time, so enjoy the time with a cup of hot tea and headphones.
