the first playlist, days like this, is inspired by the seasonal shifts of fall and winter, and is meant for a road trip (or a cozy night in or day at the office). i didn’t arrange this one in order because it’s best served shuffled. enjoy some of my favorite songs of 2017 intermingled with vintage gems.
the second playlist, where does the good go, comes to us from a request by my friend jenn. upon hearing a bonnie raitt track on the first playlist, she wrote in to say: “Bonnie Raitt is very underappreciated…maybe that would be a good subject matter…artists you forgot were so damn awesome.” so, i created a playlist full of 50 songs from 50 artists we may have forgotten were so damn awesome, and maybe some artists you’ve never heard of before; i’m pleased to make the introduction.
so this week, the challenge i implore you to take is asking yourself, “am i feeling inspired? am i feeling drained? either way, i’m doing the best that i can.” this playlist, twist and shout, is dedicated to october’s end and november’s beginning. cheers to feeling inspired again, because as as a creative human, yes, it does come in waves. i’ve included some songs that make me feel ready to take on projects (and the world) with gusto. so enjoy your weekend, and some new songs to accompany it. until next time, friends!
this week’s playlist is inspired by that moment, and is filled with songs to get you movin’ and groovin’, no matter what place you may find yourself in. i must note that this playlist was also inspired by one of my favorite things about living alone—solo dance parties all the time, and having zero shame while doing so. i’d like to think i acquire the moves of j.lo when no one else is around, right? (nooot even close.)
and there’s one more reason we need to get movin’! winter is coming. no, really. us chicagoans are settling in for another brutal winter (my radiator is clanging along as I type this), so upbeat playlists are essential.
so take a listen to this week’s playlist, get up offa that thing, grab a hairbrush microphone, and bring your best on-stage moves to the heart of your living room. it’s time to solo dance party—or at least, it’s time to keep that spirit going throughout the week as your sunday winds to a close.
