    MARK ZUCKERBERG HEARTS GREEN DAY

    Spotify Says: Reed Hastings Loves Lady Gaga, and Mark Zuckerberg Hearts Green
    Day

    Spotify, the jukebox
    service now rolling out via invite in the U.S., has a neat feature where users
    can publish and subscribe to each other’s playlists.

    You have to love that tech leaders like Reed Hastings and Mark Zuckerberg are
    partaking in public playlists and revealing that some of their mutual favorite
    listens are Madonna, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift. (Did guilty pleasure pop music
    help break the ice when the Netflix CEO recently
    agreed to join the Facebook board
    ?)

    Hastings’s “LoveGame
    playlist does have Gaga, but it’s also a mix of older and sentimental favorites
    like Cat Stevens’s “Wild World” and Savage Garden’s “Truly Madly Deeply.”

    Meanwhile, Zuckerberg has some artist-specific playlists for favorites like
    Green Day and Jay-Z, as well as a curated mix of Top 40 stuff called “Like a
    G6
    .”

    Facebook and Spotify have a close
    corporate relationship
    , and many other Facebookers appear to be active
    Spotify users. Facebook CTO Bret Taylor’s “Good
    Songs
    ” includes selections from Death Cab for Cutie and The Shins, while VP
    of Product Chris Cox has curated an extensive collection of “Island
    Music
    .”

    Quora’s Mark Bodnick has an impressive 75 public playlists, including lots
    of hip hop and a little bit of “Glee.”

    Napster founders Sean Parker (an active investor in Spotify) and Shawn
    Fanning both have a bunch of playlists up, including Parker’s “effervescent
    groove
    ” and Fanning’s “Prozac
    Plz
    .”
