Playlist of the Month: May 2019

In theory, a couple days from now we’ll find out that iTunes is being retired; I’m just going to hope that whatever they replace it with still supports smart playlists, because otherwise my entire music workflow is going to collapse.

  1. The problem with having these playlists be in order like this is that I wind up with the ‘vanguard’ of stuff that’s made it through months of the playlist, and I don’t have any new comments to add to them. ↩︎
  2. In my head, the origin story of this song involves the two guys in Daft Punk just being… paralyzed by introverted terror when The Weeknd walked into their studio ↩︎
  3. This is… pretty off-brand for me, gotta admit. But hey, it sounds good. ↩︎
  4. This is one of two blocks of “it’s time for some throwback music!” in this playlist. ↩︎
  5. Tycho is excellent “lazy Saturday morning” music. ↩︎
  6. Link for context ↩︎
  7. I want to see this movie, but I also… keep forgetting that it’s actually in theaters right now. ↩︎
  8. A+ song for singing along to, surprisingly ↩︎
  9. Fun fact: if you just search for “Alejandro” in Apple Music, you’ll get several covers of this song, but not the original. ↩︎
  10. Found out that a friend of mine recently moved to the neighborhood where I live, and immediately got this album stuck in my head – it came out right when we moved out here, and I spent a lot of time listening to it while getting deliberately lost so I could learn the lay of the land. ↩︎
