That’s the theme for December’s playlist. Not every song on this playlist tells a story with a fully fleshed out narrative structure, but enough of them do. We’re right in the middle of the hectic holiday season and instead of just giving you a list of Christmas songs for December, I thought it’d be nice to give you a list of songs to help you slow down a bit to listen to the stories and lessons of others and maybe gift yourself some time for yourself.
Maybe you’ll soak up a few of these stories, or feel compelled to tell a few of your own.
If you were looking for a cozy little playlist to snuggle up to during Sweater Weather…this is not that playlist.
But if you’re in the mood for a little drama and feeling theatrical, this month’s playlist is perfect for you. There are a few cute, playful tracks on this list, but for the most part this playlist has a very assertive, Judy Attitude-y vibe. You’ve been warned.
It’s finally Fall but here in the South, it feels like anything but. Time moves forward regardless of the lingering, sweltering summer heat and the result is a weird combination of pumpkin spice everything, college football hype and 90-degree days.
And so the vibe of this month’s playlist reflects that hazy duality: There are slower-paced songs for our equally sluggish transition to hopefully cooler weather. And there are songs with faster tempos to help everyone get hyped for college football season. (Go Dawgs!!!)
