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.

 The Modern Fringe Tiara

This tiara is one of the newest tiaras in use by the Swedish Royal Family; it was a 10 year anniversary gift from King Carl XVI Gustaf to Queen Silvia in 1986. Since the tiara was a gift it is privately owned and not a part of The Bernadotte Foundation.

This tiara is ideal, its very lightweight and likely very comfortable; additionally it had duel use and can be converted into a necklace. Although the diamonds on this tiara are not incredibly large, it does give off quite a nice but of sparkle.

Silvia has worn this tiara quite a bit, as it is her, but it’s quite small and light for a Queen with access to collection that the Swedes have. Crown Princess Victoria has never worn it as a tiara (although I would love to see it on her) she has however worn it as a necklace.  

I adore this tiara, its a really good lightweight tiara for Princesses starting their tiara wearing career and this is good for travelling. The Swedes don’t have many small light tiaras so I think its quite welcomed in to the collection. 

In recent years it’s been a favourite of Princess Madeleine, who even opted to wear it for her wedding in June 2013. Given Madeleine’s excessive use of it I imagine that Silvia may have gifted it to Madeleine, and if she hasn’t already I’m willing to bet that it will be given to her in Silvia’s will.
