Saylists’ is a collection of playlists launched exclusively on Apple Music, aimed at augmenting the speech therapy experience for young people through the power of music and technology. The custom-built Saylists feature tracks like ‘Don’t Start Now’ by Dua Lipa for the ‘D’ Playlist, ‘Good As Hell’ by Lizzo for the ‘G’ Playlist and ‘Right Here, Right Now’ by Fatboy Slim for the ‘R’ Playlist.

Rothco developed the original algorithm to analyse the lyrics of any song – looking for repeating patterns used to train specific speech sounds. Using the algorithm, Apple Music analysed song lyrics, across the 70 million tracks in its catalogue to isolate songs with significant patterns of repetition. Finally, 173 songs were chosen by Warner Music and speech and language therapist Anna Biavati-Smith to create the initial 10 ‘Saylists’.
