#MonthlyPlaylist: May 2017

For about a year now, I’ve been making playlists for every month. January 2017, February 2017, & so on. 

I am a very musical person, & always will be. My taste is pretty eclectic–I don’t turn down any genre (unless it’s country, in which case–sorry, no), & so my playlists vary from month to month, from song to song, & are a great way for me to bring back specific memories. Like: “Oh! “First Kiss” by Safakash reminds me of being in Colorado last July, riding a gondola up a mountain & seeing a mound of snow in mid-summer!” Some songs are for specific memories; some just trigger feelings that I had around that time. Either way, it’s a great way for me to document my feelings in a way that isn’t writing, & also a great opportunity for me to share what I have been listening to lately!

This month has some real oldies, as well as the newest of the new. Harry Styles’ album, inspired by a lot of older English artists, gave me the motivation to go back & listen to a few of not only Styles’ favorites, but my favorite English performers, as well. 

The image I put for this month’s playlist was one I discovered when roaming my university town. I like looking at street art, & this photograph especially caught my eye. I immediately added the song to my “May 17” playlist. I hope you like it as much as I do!

Love,

Sof ❤
