Almanac Music: Reprise – The Footy Almanac Spine Tingling Playlist


A couple of years ago a series of posts surrounding the concept of Desert Island Discs was published on the site.


As a result, a suggestion from one of our readers was to create a list of our nominated favourite spine tingling tunes.


The suggestions were then made into The Footy Almanac Spine Tingling Playlist on Spotify that can heard below.



Covid and lockdowns, for many of us, have provided more time for listening to music. Quite likely some of our musical tastes have changed as a result, and maybe some new spine tingling tracks have been discovered, or re-discovered.


Almanackers, please send in the names of any spine tingling song/s you would like added to our playlist.
