It’s my birthday month and the theme is….there is no theme. Really. I just wanted to come up with a fun playlist filled with a bunch of songs I’ve loved over the years. Many of the songs are pop classics from decades past, but you know what? If you can’t be nostalgic on a birthday playlist, when can you be?
This playlist is special because it’s not just the first one of 2020. It’s also the first playlist for a whole new decade! That’s huge! So I thought it’d be best if we started off the decade with a bit of a bang: Many of the songs on this playlist are loud, brash, and theatrical.
Tell me a story.
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.
