If you’re not reaching, engaging, and monetizing customers on mobile, you’re likely losing them to someone else. Register now for the 8th annual MobileBeat, July 13-14, where the best and brightest will be exploring the latest strategies and tactics in the mobile space.

During the past few weeks, we’ve seen a lot of activity on the acquisition front.

SoftBank finally closed its $21.6 billion deal to buy Sprint. Another active buyer has been Yahoo, with Xobni and Qwiki both agreeing to be bought by Yahoo last week. And then there’s the purchase of Boxee by Samsung for $30 million and Outerwall’s $350 million purchase of ecoATM.

So we’re dedicating our second VentureBeat Playlist to shopping. (Check out our first VentureBeat Playlist here.) While there aren’t that many songs purely dedicated to buying things, many of the tracks use buying, selling, and money as themes. Some are celebratory tunes while others are somber personal tales.

Check out the playlist on Spotify in full below.
