This week's Kodi Playlist Download is “Soundtracks.” This Kodi playlist is kind of a catch-all for all of the songs you have from those soundtrack albums you bought after sitting through to the end of the credits of your favorite movies (like you do) and saw something to the effect, “Soundtrack available on XYZ records.” Also included in this playlist are any songs from live theater cast albums.

My family likes buying movie soundtrack albums. In the past few decades, film makers have tended to put popular music in their movies – That is, music you've heard on terrestrial or internet radio first. I'm guessing that has spurred increased sales on soundtrack albums. I know it has for my family. That's not to say that we don't buy movie soundtracks that consist of music that's original to the film. Examples of original scores we've purchased are “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Star Wars.”

We're kind of light on the amount of live theater cast albums we've purchased, but we do have some. We buy cast albums either because the music is great or we have a special attachment to the show. For example, our niece, Katherine, was one of the kids in “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” when it appeared in San Francisco quite a few years ago. So, aside from paying a king's ransom for tickets to multiple shows, we had to buy the album. Right? An example of our buying a cast album for its truly great music can be found from the show, “Les Misérables.”

Today's Kodi Playlist Download

I've named the playlist file, “Soundtracks” for simplicity's sake even though it includes both soundtracks and cast albums. Here are your marching orders:

After downloading the .ZIP file, you need to do two things:

  1. Unzip the playlist into your Kodi music playlist folder — You can find specific information on playlist folders in this article: Kodi Playlist Folders
  2. Start Kodi (if it isn't already running) and navigate to the Playlist section of your music library, select this new playlist and enjoy

Today's playlist is 458 bytes in size and contains all of your music from movie soundtracks and show cast albums in random order.

That's all there is to it. Follow the instructions listed above and quick as you can say, "Any Dream Will Do," you'll have a new music playlist.

Note: If you just copy the .ZIP file into your playlist folder, Kodi will handle it just fine. It sees the zip file and adds it to your list of playlists. Clicking on the .ZIP file will open it up and present you with the contents. In the case of today's file: “Soundtracks.” Click on that and it works like any other playlist.

Today's playlist is “Soundtracks.”

Today's playlist is 458 bytes in size and contains all of your music from the movie soundtracks and show cast albums in random order.
