Five Things #85 / by Ross Farley

Every Wednesday I share five things I've liked and think you might like too. Here are this week’s Five Things…

  1. Pithy wisdom for a new year. Start small, start now.

  2. According to BPI, 68.1 billion songs were streamed in the UK during 2017. That's an increase of 51.5% on 2016 and 1740% (😮) on 2012!

  3. From following much of the media coverage last year, you might have incorrectly assumed only bad things happened in 2017. Quite a few good things happened too: 13 Things That Happened In 2017 That Will Actually Cheer You Up, Ten Silver Linings in 2017.

  4. Who'd have thought watching bubbles freeze would be so satisfying.

  5. Spotify has me starting 2018 in style with its Classical Meets Electronica playlist: "Classical music reworked by contemporary musicians, who made clever deconstructive use of the material to create soothing and graceful electronic/ambient works." SOLD!

That's all for this week. If you enjoyed it, subscribe and you'll get the next one delivered to your inbox.

ps. Happy New Year! Have a fantastic 2018 😎
