The Alive with Clive Playlist on Spotify was started on June 20, 2020.
It consists of the superb new songs from Alive with Clive alums.
Over the past several weeks, as new singles have been released, they have been added to the Playlist.
The Playlist includes only songs of singer-songwriters who’ve been guests on Alive with Clive.
Recent additions to the Playlist include songs by Natalie Gelman, THE 456, Karen Jacobsen, Danielle Patoir, Nico Padden, Cassandra Kubinski, Simon Benegas, Tiffany Thompson, Rue Snider, Abby Ahmad, Shelly Bhushan, Rorie Kelly, Nina Lee, Annie DiRusso, Will Leet, Galia Arad, Corey Lewin and Radiator King.
As a result of these recent additions, there are now more than 160 songs on the Playlist.
At the inception of the Playlist, with some exceptions, the songs were mostly listed in chronological order, with newer songs added to the bottom of the list.
From now on, the order in which the songs are listed on the Playlist is being determined by the votes of fans and listeners — so the Playlist becomes a music chart that is updated on a consistent basis and attracts worldwide attention.
Based on the votes of fans and listeners, soon after the beginning of every month the featured image and thumbnail for the Playlist is updated with the artwork for the songs that occupied the top four positions on the Playlist at the end of the previous month.
The Top 4 songs on the Playlist will thus receive the most attention and exposure, since the featured image and thumbnail will be displayed in Blog posts, in press releases, and in posts on the major social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube and Pinterest.
Here is the new Featured Image for November, 2021:
In general, fans and listeners may vote every day and only once a day. From time to time, though, windows of opportunity will be provided for votes to be cast more often than once a day.
These windows of opportunity will be announced on the page on Instagram and the page on Facebook for Alive with Clive.
Soon after the start of October, “X,” a song about letting go of thoughts about past experiences and carefully organizing memories, by New-Jersey based singer-songwriter, aReJay Ella, moved into the top position on the Leaderboard and has continued to fortify its position at the top of the leaderboard ever since then.
Currently, Nashville-based singer-songwriter, Paige Howell, is in second place in the voting with her invigorating song, “BODY,” about a dilemma involving irresistible physical attraction to your ex after a breakup.
Four songs from the new album 501 vibez, “IREALLYWANTMYBESTFRIENDBACK,” “cellular infatuation,” “sunkiss” and “beautiful swimimer” by New-Jersey based electro pop singer-songwriter Xander Marx occupy positions 3, 4, 5 and 6 on the Leaderboard.
Seventh place belongs to “Breathe, Decide,” a rich piano-based ballad by Rue Snider that expresses a yearning for a relationship to continue.
Since four songs from 501 vibez are in the top six positions on the Playlist, the artwork for “Breathe, Decide” is included in the current Featured Image even though it is in 7th position on the Playlist.
So far, while almost all the songs on the Playlist have been released since July 30, 2020, the songs by Hanna Barakat on the Playlist are from her album, Siren, which was released on August 16, 2019.
In all likelihood, a few more songs released before July 30, 2020, will be added to the Playlist in the future.
