NOTE: GrowthBeat -- VentureBeat's provocative new marketing-tech event -- is a week away! We've gathered the best and brightest to explore the data, apps, and science of successful marketing. Get the full scoop here, and grab your tickets while they last.

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.
