Playlist Prevention!


Well, normally, I would have had a nice, winter-themed video game playlist for you today, but 8tracks has decided to be a butt.

Part of their terms states that you can’t have more than 2 songs from any one artist…but apparently “Nintendo” counts as an artist.  Now, several of my playlists have been moved to private (where I can’t even listen to them myself), and I can’t publish my latest one.

Needless to say, if I can’t have more than 2 songs that have ever appeared on a Nintendo console, the idea of a video game playlist on 8tracks is basically dead.

So, if anyone knows of a service that is a little more reasonable where I can upload my own tracks and make a playlist of you all to listen to, then let me know so we can all have something nice and wintry to listen to.

Thank you!

  1. Weird, I could’ve sworn it was no more than two songs from the same Albums, they must’ve changed it recently, as it seems 8Tracks updates as often as Tumblr. But if it’s just artists you’re having trouble with there is away around it, but it requires some research depending on the songs you’ve got. By finding the actual composers,if they’re listed on the wikipiedia pages of whatever games you’ve got up your sleeve. Tedious, but that’s what I’ve been doing for the Artists at least.

    But with Albums there’s also a way around it, not naming it EXACTLY as you did the last two. For example, Original Soundtrack, and OST are two different naming conventions and count as two different things for album names. so I’d be able to put four songs from the same thing by using two of each of those exact subtitles.
    Hope that helps a little bit.^.^

    • Yasss girl, yass, it’s worrrkingggg! Finally! Honestly, I think it’s fair to credit the composers anyhow. Why should Nintedo get all the credit for their genius just because they’re signing the check? ^_^ Hooray, I’m so happy. I’ll have to go back and fix the other playlists when I am feeling bored/motivated.

      Thank yooouuuu! 💙
