Create a playlist What is a playlist? What is a playlist? A playlist is just a list of songs or pieces of music. Your 'playlist for life' is all the songs or pieces of music that make up the soundtrack to your life. Lullabies your mum sang to you. Your first 'slow dance'. Music that reminds you of special holidays or special people. Your playlist for life will be as unique as you are. It can be short or long. It can be written on a piece of paper or created on a ready-made programme like Spotify or iTunes. You can keep a playlist on an mp3 player (a type of music-playing device with headphones) so it is ready to play at any time. Or you can listen to your playlist on your CD collection. Or singing from your playlist can be a lovely experience. New technology is easy to use and can be a real help. You can download our resource below on how to get started. If you and your family might struggle financially to provide your loved one with an iPod or mp3 player, you can fill in this form to request one.
