Soundtrack your vaccine with Spotify’s pick of which songs to listen to as you get your shot. Yes, you read that right.
With more Americans getting the vaccine each day, Spotify has put together its very own vaccination playlist. As the world waits for COVID-19 vaccines to roll in their direction, luckily there’s something vaccine-related that music lovers can control – the tracks they play in anticipation of getting their shot.
Spotify noticed the number of playlists on the platform with a vaccine theme had jumped by 350% over the past 90 days, as users made light of their vaccination appointments. Lots of users have even named their playlists after whichever brand of vaccine they were given. In response Spotify has assembled its own greatest hits inspired by the kind of songs users have been adding to their vaccination soundtracks.
A year ago Covid vaccines were still a distant dream, and now here we are, picking the perfect tunes to get jabbed to. Spotify’s songs, plucked from user’s playlists, aim to encourage listeners to think optimistically about getting the vaccine, with tracks like “Do It” by Chloe x Halle and ABBA’s “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!” spreading positive vibes. Dolly Parton gets a feature in honour of her help in funding the Moderna vaccine.
The tongue-in-cheek playlist is accompanied by a link to information on the US vaccine rollout, so Americans can stay informed before getting their shot.
Check out the vaccination playlist below. One thing is immediately obvious – Spotify completely missed a trick by not including The Vaccines.
