My #HRevolution 2014 Playlist




The HR Social Media family reunion is upon us once again.  Saturday, Dallas will host the annual love-bomb known as HRevolution.  It’s an event I look forward to every year, never comes soon enough, and is over far too quickly.  A couple of years ago, a threw together a playlist based on session titles and topics, inspired by Paul Smith.  We don’t see Paul enough these days (but he is universally loved and missed), so in the spirit of our friend, I thought I’d put together a list for this year.

There are no hidden messages here.  Just tunes that I dig that came to mind.  Since the agenda features fewer overall sessions this year (but, as I’m not presenting, I will assume they will be of higher quality!) I’ve dropped in a couple of tracks for each session.  If you are attending, you can expect to hear this list on loop in the Lay Wine and Scotch Lounge, opening soon in the Dallas area.

(Oh, and if you are in Dallas this weekend and you DON’T have plans to attend?  Still time to fix that.  There are a handful of seats left.  Someone is always sad they didn’t attend.  Don’t be that guy.)

So here are the tracks per session.  The Spotify playlist is right below, if that is your thing.
