Alright, look, I know that this is going to come off as a shameless plug, but one of my favorite things about music streaming is the ability to listen to anything and everything that comes out. Most people don’t have the time to actually sift through all of the stuff that comes out every year though. Jobs, family, a social life, whatever. Doesn’t matter. What does matter is that I do have the time to listen to most of what comes out (which is why I started this blog!).
A personal tradition of mine is curating a playlist every year that contains what I believe are the strongest songs of that year. Until now it’s been entirely a personal thing so that I can listen through the playlist throughout December and January of the following year to reminisce on all of the great music that has come out that year.
But now, I want to share that with all of you.
