    Posted March 18, 2013 at 10:45 am | Permalink

    TY, we can confirm that the person choosing is not some kind of Swift superfan — the reason for the seeming Taylor takeover is simply that a huge number of the playlists being submitted are featuring her music! The playlists we’re putting on Tumblr are some of the ones we feel best rise to the challenge we’ve set (ie. where the song titles themselves are telling the plot, not just the song’s content), but everyone who submits an original playlist is receiving their 25% discount promo code.
