This week: Celebrating Elvis, New Playlists and Tips for Voice Commands, only on ROXi.
In case you missed last week’s issue…
Every Friday, with the weekly ROXi RoundUp, we’ll be keeping you up-to-date with new product features, exclusive content, new releases, new playlists, and maybe…a joke or two.
We’ll only give you the content you want to receive, so keep your eyes and ears peeled…
Long Live the King
We’re already speeding toward the end of August, and this one marks 43 years since the world lost one of the most important artists in the history of recorded music, Elvis Presley. In those passing decades, his influence has remained a constant and his contributions to the fabric of pop culture consistently celebrated via fan conventions, meetups in Memphis, and of course, as seen in multiple Nicolas Cage movies, Elvis impersonators.
John Lennon famously said, “Before Elvis, there was nothing,” and after Elvis there’s a treasure trove of music he left behind – spanning the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s. ROXi has them all for you in one convenient place, just head to Top Playlists and you’ll find 40 of the King’s biggest and best performances under Genres/Rock.
And how’s this for kismet: Guess who shared a January 8th birthday with Mr. Presley? Oh, just a guy named David Bowie. It’s as if someone said, “And on the eighth day, let there be legends.” The Starman was a dedicated Elvis fan, even writing ‘Golden Years’ with him in mind. We here at ROXi also have a brand-new Bowie At His Best playlist ready and waiting for you in Genres/Rock (right next to Elvis).
New ERA’s Playlist: 2010s
We’ve also updated our ever-popular Eras playlists with the biggest hits from each decade, and added the Best of the 2010s to the collection (can you believe there are people born in the 2000s who are now old enough to vote?). The most popular songs from the 1940s all the way up to now are yours to enjoy in Top Playlists/Eras only on ROXi.
Also on ROXi this week…
For instant sound gratification, simply press the mic button on your ROXi controller and say, “Play ______” without having to navigate to it or search for it on screen you can also favourite and unfavourite music just by using your voice!
The recent UK charts are full of nostalgia, and it’s no wonder we’re all looking for some comfort during these unpredictable times. ROXi has all of your favourite Greatest Hits, from Fleetwood Mac – 50 Years Don’t Stop to Bob Marley & The Wailers – Legend and ABBA – Gold.
Check out Sunday Morning in the Relax section of Moods for the song equivalent of breakfast in bed… and then staying in that bed for the rest of the day. Go ahead, it’s fine.
