You’re Going to Be Obsessed With Spotify’s New Throwback Timewaster

We admit it — we’re always weak for nostalgia. From outfits and TV shows to DIY creations and *obviously* music, we can never get enough of turning back time in all aspects of our lives. Spotify clearly gets us, because the streaming music co just released a new feature that turns the potential of every second, minute, hour and day being TBT-worthy into a reality. Yep, productivity is about to go down the drain c/o some vintage fine tune-ing ;)

Spotify’s Taste Rewind is a web app for mobile devices and computers that gives music lovers the opportunity to listen to curated throwback playlists from the ’00s all the way back to the 1920s. By selecting three musical acts you can never stop listening to, like Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears, Maroon 5, etc. the Spotify music experts will then create playlists for you to jam out to for the rest of the week, month and year. From ’90s R+B to the soulful sounds of the ’50s + ’60s, your days will be going from bubblegum pop to legendary tunes in the matter of seconds.

If you’re feeling a playlist, open it up on Spotify. If not, keep redoing your three artist selections until you find that perfect collection (that’s where the time wasting comes in ;) Pro-tip: It’s totally acceptable to keep making new playlists if you’re trying to avoid working; you’re doing”research,” right?

Now go groove at your desk with everyone from Michael + Janet to Ray Charles + Aretha. Then hit up Starbucks and become the resident throwback DJ while your fave barista crafts your latte. Happy music time traveling!

Will you be endlessly creating throwback playlists with Spotify’s new feature? Let us know in the comments + share your fave decade of music while you’re at it.
