GO Chill and Go Pop are each 50 songs and will refresh every week
If you need a little help making it through your daily commute on the GO Train – seriously, how do so many people not understand what a “quiet zone” is? – Sony Music Canada and Metrolinx have something for you. Jumping on the same transitwagon as the TTC’s partnership with Apple Music and Universal and making sure no Toronto journey is unplaylisted, the transport agency and record company have teamed up with Spotify to deliver two playlists specifically designed for GO commutes.
The two playlists, GO Pop and GO Chill, each 50 songs long, are streaming now on Spotify. They feature a range of artists and genres – but, obviously, just one record label – like P!nk and Bruno Mars on the Pop side and Sufjan Stevens and Alicia Keys on the Chill side. There’s a mix of old and new tracks, with songs like Daft Punk’s Get Lucky playing alongside Drake’s God’s Plan. Both playlists will be refreshed every week.
Metrolinx and Sony announced the partnership on April 18 with a four-song set by Canadian country rock group Cold Creek County, held at Union Station. The band played four songs to assembled fans and commuters.
