August Playlists

1 Comment

In 2010, I began to create a new iPod playlist each month.  I usually copy the entire list from the previous month into the next month’s list, and then I begin the process of adding new songs and deleting songs that I’m sick of hearing.  I have saved all of the lists from the past two years, and it’s been very interesting to see how the songs from each month have had a way of reflecting the events in my life at the time.  Each list tells a story.  Often though, that story isn’t revealed until months later as I look back at the songs and remember the events from that time.

Just last night I created an entire, brand new list for August.  I didn’t do my usual copy/paste this month, so my August list is a little short.  I’ll add to it, though, and I welcome any suggestions!
