How Did the Music Playlist at JetBlue's JFK Terminal 5 Get So Darn Good?

Chances are, as you're speed walking from security to your boarding gate, that the last thing on your mind is the music taste of the airline. Perhaps during a delay you'll tilt an ear to whatever muzak-remixed Katy Perry is softly playing, but you'll actually want to listen up at JetBlue's Terminal 5 at JFK Airport, thanks to crowd-sourced playlists created by passengers just like you.

We always wondered if Terminal 5 was simply reading our mind, with its selections like Franz Ferdinand's "Take Me Out" during a TSA screening, or Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations" before an early morning flight to the Caribbean. The truth of the matter is that the recognition for such awesome mixing goes to whoever requests songs via the Terminal's partnership with Rockbot app.

In the app's own words, they're "a social jukebox service that lets you engage with the music right from your phone." Don't like what's on the queue? Cast your vote to sway the final playlist.

The JetBlue T5 x Rockbot venue has been live since November 2013, and digital displays around the terminal will clue you into what's playing and how to contribute your two cents. Or just head over to the T5 Rockbot page.
