This is my project for Lent, a musical journey through 40 albums up to Easter Sunday. Why call the blog the “Broad Street Playlist”? I got my inspiration from where I went to school: Temple University. Music is a part of life… and big part of life at Temple University. It’s not just a big part of life at Temple, but with life in general.
That said, you probably will (probably) not recognize many of the bands or artists that I list and that is perfectly fine. Who knows, maybe you will introduced to a new favorite band or artist or even song. That is what music is about; it’s about discovery. Discovering new favorite songs, new favorite bands/artists, or even rediscovering old favorites. Remember, choosing what music you listen to is like picking what sports teams you root for. It’s subjective. What bands/music I like is completely different from what you like, and that’s the beauty of it!
2017 saw the Broad Street Playlist complete it’s fifth year. The project features 200 different and unique albums spanning the genres of pop, rock, alternative, indie, Rock en Español, punk, grunge, hard rock, metal, ska, and much more. For a complete list of every album, check out this handy page here!
Now with FIVE years in the bag, the Broad Street Playlist is continuing it’s growth and expansion into new places. Such as the recap playlist(s). Of course there may or may not me some more ambitious plans in store for the sixth year. What might these big and ambitious plans be? Come back starting Ash Wednesday 2018 to find out!
