Today, June 21, in addition to the summer solstice, we celebrate the European Music Day. A celebration that, as happened with Eurovision 2022, from Apple Music they have wanted honor with multiple playlists in which we can discover new authors and songs from the Music app of our iPhone, iPad or Mac.
A musical journey through our best music
Accompanying the main playlist, 50 Years of Spanish Pop, we found another 50 carefully crafted playlists by experts from all musical genres. Lists in which the most important pop names in our country stand out on such an important day as today.
“June 21 is the European Music Day, something that became official as of 1982. It was in June of that same year, when for the first time, a group of musicians took to the streets to celebrate this date with the intention to entertain the public and where there was no distinction regarding musical genres and that would open the doors to new manifestations such as urban music, rap or techno, among others.The precursor of this idea was the musician American Joel Cohen in 1976, who proposed that musical groups play during the two solstices that are celebrated each year, the first on June 21 and the other on December 21, which became a fact from of that same year, in Toulouse, France”.
Spanish pop has traveled its history with artists who have managed to capture the spirit of their time. Thus, this year, Apple Music wants to revive the key songs in the history of our pop music. In a list that contemplates a complete journey through several decades of musical history. Lists such as Spanish Hits of 1972, Spanish Hits of 1982 with Mecano, Alaska and Los Pegamoides, among others, or the list of Spanish Hits of 1990 with Miguel Bosé or Pata Negra, to name a couple of artists. We will also find Spanish Hits of 2019 led by Rosalía, Omar Montes or Bad Gyal among many others.
As a whole, a historical and detailed musical journey to celebrate, today, Music Day, the rich contribution of the artists of our country. A journey that begins in Apple Music, where we will find the 50 lists waiting for us.
