When last I checked my calendar, it was still summer. Even with fall looming on the horizon (did I just see Halloween candy in store? I did), I assert our collective right to maintain a summer attitude for at least a little longer. This playlist is a step in that direction.
The Fingertips Playlist is a curated flow of music featuring free and legal MP3s, all of which are still available to download, and all of which were originally featured on Fingertips. Total play time this time is about 42 minutes.
Fingertips is on a belated spring break this week; there will be no new songs, but not to leave you empty-handed, I’m offering up a new playlist. I see this playlist as an effort to reflect on the springtime as both a time of year and a state of mind.

There’s a new playlist up and it’s for Valentine’s Day. All songs previously featured on Fingertips, all still available as free and legal MP3s. I was seeking a decent variety of tone even while staying in the general spirit of the day. See how I did by clicking through and hitting the play button.
Hundreds of songs that have been featured on Fingertips over the years are still available online as free and legal MP3s. One way to find them is to poke through the Artist Index—but, because that remains a work in progress in terms of cleaning out dead links, this isn’t necessarily the best way to unearth the hidden gems very quickly.
The intermittent Flashback feature (click on the “flashback” category in the sidebar to check those out) is another way to source older MP3s—but this too lacks a certain immediacy, as the Fingertips Flashback appears maybe once a month.
So here is a new feature: Fingertips Playlists.
