Overwatch Character Playlists

So I’ve spent the last few weeks compiling some of my favorite music to all the playable characters in Overwatch.  The playlists can be found on Spotify by clicking HERE and going to the “Public Playlists” tab.

Each playlist has 10 songs and is roughly 30-45 minutes.  Most are lyrical, although there are some instrumental songs mixed in.  Each playlist ends with a song that has something to do with the character’s ultimate ability (whether it be the song title matches the ultimate name, or the song gives off a vibe of how you feel while using the ultimate).

Below the Keep Reading tab I’ve put the track lists and links to each individual playlist.

E for the music one! or P.

E: a song by a band I’ve seen live

Time To Go Home -Michael Franti & Spearhead

This was actually the FIRST band I ever saw live. I was sixteen, and could not light a lighter during the song “Light Up Ya Lighter”, which I found devastating. 

P: a song that I’d recommend you based on your blog

er…..How Fucking Romantic, the Magnetic Fields? 

or maybe Not Alone by the Indelicates? I’m thinking along the lines of sadsack shipping, here. 

Life is too short to stay in a shitty mood. Chin up, kid. [Some songs to cheer you up]

Tagged by @educatedinyellow, thank you!!

A song you like with a color in the title: Blue Moon (my dad’s band used to play this)

A song you like with a number in the title: Hymn #101 by Joe Pug (not a hymn)

A song that reminds you of summer time: Hold Back the River, James Bay (because I heard it first in summer, and I love to play it driving with the windows rolled down)

A song that reminds you of someone you’d rather forget: I think I’ve forgotten the song with the person, if I have one.

A song that needs to be played LOUD: Say Hey by Michael Franti & Spearhead (preferably while dancing)

A song that makes you want to dance: You Can Call Me Al, Paul Simon (my dad used to put the Graceland album on in the living room when I was a toddler so I have small-baby memories of joy associated with it)

A song to drive to: Every song I love, I love driving to, but I’ll say I Wanna Get Better by Bleachers.

A song about drugs or alcohol: Too many addicts in my family to listen to songs like that

A song that makes you happy: All of these but also Strange by LP (when I saw her I saw the kind of person I want to be. Nonbinary and beautiful)

A song that makes you sad: December 1963 for obvious reasons. It came on at my cousin’s wedding while we were dancing and it was all I could do not to react.
