Nothing gets you in the holiday spirit faster than holiday music, but once New Year's rolls around, you don't want to listen to Jingle Bell Rock for another 11 months. But in the era of the MP3 how do you keep your holiday tunes handy while keeping them out of your workout mix? Well, I'm gonna show you how. First step, we're gonna open up iTunes. Doesn't matter if you're on an iPhone or Android or if you haven't touched iTunes in years. It's still one of the easiest ways to import your music and get it on a playlist. And that's what you're gonna do. You're gonna make a playlist for holiday music and then you're gonna dump whatever you have in there. Next select all in that playlist and then select get info. On the options tab check the box that says skip when shuffling in the off chance that one of these tunes still make their way to your phone this will ensure that they don't pop up during a shuffle. Finally with your song still selected hit copy and then create a new folder on your desktop called holiday music. It can paste the songs in the folder. [MUSIC] Next we're gonna upload these to a free cloud music player. Now, the two that most people are already signed up for, whether they know it or not, are Amazon Music, and Google Music. Both are free and both work with Mac or PC or Android or iOS. And because you're probably not taking advantage of either one they make a great place to stash music that you only listen to occasionally. In my case I'll go with Amazon Music. You head over to Amazon.com/cloudplayer and then you log in with your Amazon ID. Click the button for import your library, find the holiday music folder you created, select it, and then hit import all. [MUSIC] Once uploaded, you'll find all of your Holiday Music included on the recently added playlist on your Amazon cloud player. To turn it in to a permanent playlist, check the select all box at the top of the list, then click add to play list, and create a new playlist called Holiday Music. [MUSIC] Finally, to take your holiday music on the go, you're gonna want to download the Amazon Music app, or the Google Music app, if that's the way you went. Then sign in and find your playlist. From here, you can shuffle the songs in your playlist, and you can delete them on the fly. And let's not forget the best part. Once the holidays are over, instead of deleting your holiday songs one at a time, you can just delete the whole app, or ignore the app until the holidays roll around next [MUSIC] So there you go. That's how to get your holiday tunes up and running without it contaminating the rest of the music on your phone. Have a happy holiday and a great jingle bell free new year.
