Shaddap'a'yous'face: An Instrumental Thread

Looking for some help! I’m looking to create a Spotify playlist of generally crowd pleasing instrumentals of diverse genres. Leaning on the relaxing or fun side rather than dramatic or intense but also wanting to avoid the elevator muzak vibe. More so Great American, Night Nurse, or Mamu than Tinkles, Wizard, or Fancy vibes.

Miles Davis - Kind of Blue whole album works.

Dawg’s Waltz - Garcia/Grisman is an isolated track that works.

Green Onions is a popular tune that works.

Generally lo-fi chill beats is a guaranteed winner.

I would like to get some more world and cowboy vibes going as well…

Tons of good stuff by the New Mastersounds or the Motet (Dig Deep and self-titled albums have a few really good instrumental tracks).

Electric Beethoven is a pretty unique sound.

Hachey is good lofi stuff.
