Spotify Has A Time Capsule Playlist
Serena Carsley-Mann - February 13, 2018


By Greta Zwaan

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

Spotify is here to satisfy all of your nostalgic needs with their Time Capsule playlist.  It’ll make you feel like you’re 12 years old all over again, but in the best way possible. You know without acne and awkward so called boyfriends.

Spotify will make you a personalized, two hour long playlist with the exact songs you need to travel back to your teenage period. The system decides which 30 songs it thinks you listened to back in the day when you were in your teens.  It’s the new and improved Daily Mix that is based on your streaming habits, and is usually quite accurate.

Apparently everyone loves to be reminded of their most embarrassing time period and about how much screamo music they once listened to.  And if you still listen to these songs, then that can create some extra awkwardness, but it’s alright.  The playlist is only available to those who are over 16 years old, so that they actually have something to be nostalgic about and is available in 60 of Spotify’s 61 markets.
