On April 1, 2016, Apple turned 40. The company’s music streaming service, Apple Music, is celebrating the milestone with a special playlist, titled ‘Apple 40’, that includes forty songs from various Apple ads to “celebrate 40 years of ideas, innovation and culture.”

Some of the songs included in the playlist come from Steve Jobs’s favorite artists—Bob Dylan and The Beatles—in addition to other artists such as Coldplay, Gorillaz and more.

Apple Music subscribers can listen to these songs or add the playlist to their library.

In addition to this playlist, Apple also commemorated its anniversary with a special performance for employees by Beats 1 presenter Zane Lowe at the Cupertino campus.

In addition, the company hoisted a “jolly roger” pirate flag with a big skull and crossbones in white at the center above 1 Infinite Loop—a familiar piece of Apple folklore—and released a video, titled ’40 Years in 40 Seconds’ that highlights some of its best innovations throughout the years.

      If you use Spotify, search Apple Commercial Songs. There are a couple playlists out there that would provide a good starting place.

    Cool list. Two and a half hours long, too.
