Crowd sourced data curation playlist

27 Jul 2022
Groups audience: 

Apologies for cross-posting. Please share broadly!
In April I made a call for data folks to fill out a survey
and share what kind of music you like
to listen to when curating data or working with data. Thank you all for
your help. I'm sharing the results. Please enjoy!
Google Spreadsheet
The Crowdsourced data curation playlist
spreadsheet provides access to music 66 data librarians and data curators
listen to when curating data. Columns in the spreadsheet include what type
of data is curated when listening to a song/music, how the song/music makes
the person who suggested feel, the musician and song title, a Youtube video
link to the song, and if the song has lyrics or not.
For folks who want to click once and have a playlist with autoplay we have
you covered. The Youtbe playlist includes 157 music videos ranging from 1
minute 58 seconds in length to 11 hours 45 minutes. The first 47 videos in
the playlist are videos without lyrics to help those who prefer music
without lyrics when curating data.
Tidal (subscription required)
Just in case you have a subscription to Tidal, you can find the playlist
there too. I was originally going to post a playlist in Spotify since folks
can have limited free access, but I don’t agree with many of their
practices and Tidal is musician owned and pays artists a bit more.
