A New ‘Get Up’ Weekly Playlist Is Available in Apple Music

Igor Bonifacic, Engadget:

Apple is trying something new to keep people’s spirits up during the coronavirus pandemic. In Apple Music, it’s introducing a new algorithmic playlist called the Get Up! Mix that the company says is full of “happy-making, smile-finding, sing-alonging music.” With the help of human editors, it will update the playlist each week with new songs. Think: Discovery Weekly, but with a focus on playing tunes that will encourage good vibes — though there’s the promise of discovering new music as well.

Mine is chock full of the “happy-making” tunes of Death Grips and Show Me the Body, and the “smile-finding” sound of Radiohead and Joy Division. Your mileage may vary. Good vibes only.
