Gap In-Store Playlists Make The New Yorker!

Hopefully, this will help me obtain more of the Gap In-Store Playlists that I am missing.

I feel like Elaine Benes: I'm in The New Yorker (online edition)!!!!!

I've already received several emails from people in the last few hours who read the article on The New Yorker's online site and found my blog, rediscovering "lost" songs that they loved.

NOW I just need to find some people who also saved playlists like I did.

And here is my second OFFICIAL Gap playlist created for Spotify!

A merry mix of songs we played in Gap stores in the ’90s, curated by longtime employee Mike Bise (creator of our Meet Me in the ’90s playlist). Cue it up for a festive throwback. Cocoa optional.

When you say it’s an “official” playlist, what does that mean?

Gap contacted me to create this playlist for their official Spotify channel, as well as the previous one in September:

We're bringing back some of our stores' soundtrack from the '90s to create this playlist of favorites from the decade, curated by longtime Gap employee Mike Bise.
