Martin Luther King, Jr.

From Ava Duvernay (director of the new MLK film Selma) on Instagram:

In honor of MLK Day, check out Spotify’s collection of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s most famous speeches and the songs they inspired.

The playlist features speeches such as “I Have a Dream,” “We Shall Overcome,” and the entirety of his last speech, “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop,” delivered on April 3, 1968, at the Mason Temple in Memphis, TN. He was assassinated the following day.

Spotify Invites

So I’ve been playing with Spotify, the new music service that will let you stream all you want from a library of 15 million songs for free (for the next six months, after which it will be capped at a limited number of hours TBD). But to add features, like listening to music on the go, you have to pay a monthly fee. What’s cool is that you can integrate your own tracks with their library, share your playlists, and even collaborate on playlists with your friends.

Grab your free invite here. It usually takes an hour or two for them to send it over. If that doesn’t work, leave a comment and I’ll try to get one to you–I have a few of my own.
