Suggested Playlists for IHeartRadio's Awesome New 'Perfect For' Feature
I live in a house full of music lovers, buoyed always toward happiness through their expanding playlists of songs. Whether cleaning up the house on weekends after five days of work- and school- filled madness, driving to the mountains to enjoy a new snowfall, or simply kicking back in the evening, music is part of the action. Each member of the household has their unique set of songs they call into play for a variety of critical lifetime junctures.
Which is why I believe iHeartRadio's new Perfect For feature is sheer brilliance.
If you haven't upgraded your mobile iHeartRadio app in the last few days, please do so, and start it up. You'll be greeted with a new feature, offering far more than the typical playlists you've been enjoying on the free music streaming service.
In the past, just as now, you could listen to playlists tailored to musical tastes, like Coffeeshop Rock, Deep-Fried Flannel, or Chillax Radio. Social music service iHeartRadio users have their own particular favorite canned content sets, depending on your mood or the task at the moment. Not interested in canned content, simply make your own playlists from a song or artist.
With Perfect For, however, iHeartRadio goes much further toward helping you get to work (or working out) by classifying over 1,500 playlists to particular days, times of day, moods or tasks at hand. Within each particular activity there are "shades" of that activity, creating a much more granular mood match for you and iHeartRadio's music sets.
I turned on iHeartRadio this morning, and was greeted with playlists that are deemed perfect for the typical activities of a Sunday morning, including reading the newspaper, drinking coffee or tailgating at an NFL Playoffs game. If I had to work today (luckily not), there's even a playlist to help me get through the morning at my place of employment.Continued on the next page
