I wanted to post a little throwback today.
I like posting monthly playlists on my blog because it forces me to listen to more music than I usually do and rediscover old songs I used to love. I listened to a lot of music when I was in high school, but now I don’t take the time to sit down and listen to an album without any distractions.
I would make playlists on iTunes and burn them to CDs to give to friends. We’d listen to them in their cars or when we’d have pool parties. I also used to make playlists on the website 8tracks any time I felt inspired by music and wanted to share what I heard. I used to spend a lot of time curating them and finding cover art for them.
This month’s playlist (a combination of December and January) will feature one of my old 8tracks playlists from high school, “Chill Electronic“. Thom Yorke’s music has always been a huge inspiration for me, and it’s what inspired this playlist. I added a few more songs to the original and posted it on Spotify:
