Spotify Curates Music Based on Thanksgiving Turkey Size

Popular streaming site Spotify have developed a series of playlists that last as long as your turkey needs to sit in the oven.
By: Lawrence Bonk

It's no secret that the most finicky part of cooking that Thanksgiving dinner is the turkey itself. Not only is proper basting an exacting and time-consuming task, but the bird has to sit in the oven for four or five hours. Now you can spend that time jamming to tunes, thanks to Spotify.

The music streaming company has developed a series of playlists that correlate to the time your bird needs to sit in the oven. All you do is open up the program and enter how fat your turkey is and let the magical algorithm do the rest. Pretty soon you'll be rocking out to a playlist that is the exact length of the cook time. Yay technology? Yeah, sure.

Of course, this service will only be available until Thanksgiving, as people don't tend to cook giant turkeys throughout the rest of the year (which is a bummer.)
