Music with Alexa: Fun Music Easter Eggs with Amazon’s Alexa

Week 2 of Fun with Alexa!  Last week, in Movies with Alexa, I talked about how much I love my Amazon Echo Dot and how useful (and fun!) Alexa is. So we’re going to keep the fun going with Music with Alexa this week!

General Music Tips:

  • Alexa, play [artist].  (We ask for Elmo a lot.)
  • Alexa, play ___ playlist.  (Alexa will play any playlist you created through Amazon music.)
  • Alexa, who sings [song title]?
  • Alexa, who is in the band ___?  (You can ask for the members of just about any band.)
  • Alexa, play the song that goes, “Friday night I crashed your party.”  (Basically, it’s a song lyric search.  For when you’re trying to figure out that earworm you’ve had in your head all day.)
  • Alexa, drumroll, please.
  • Alexa, open Spotify.  (She also plays Pandora and a number of music skills, once they’re enabled through the Alexa app.)
