  1. One of my favorite things about iTunes is that it can show me play counts for songs; I think it’s neat to see what my Clear Favorites are. ↩︎
  2. Two songs by Mr. Hudson on this list now, and I only started listening to him because I hit the wrong thing while trying to play Coldplay one day. Gotta love random chance. (Or a good marketing strategy, I suppose.) ↩︎
  3. Found this song by way of Elementary, who usually have pretty good final songs. And speaking of Elementary, it’s ending this season, I believe. I’ll be needing a new Sherlock Holmes show soon… ↩︎
  4. A bit more from my nostalgia break last month. ↩︎
  5. I really enjoy this one; Mattis has a good voice for it. ↩︎
  6. Gotta love Kesha. ↩︎
  7. One of my top two favorite additions this month; not the album art I chose, though, because Elliot Moss had an excellent design. ↩︎
  8. I… do not want to admit to how long it took me to figure out that this was Chris Martin singing. Just a lot of “wow, I didn’t know Avicii sounded so much like the Coldplay guy!” ↩︎
  9. My other favorite addition this month; some serious Bon Iver circa 2016 vibes. ↩︎
  10. If you like Haux, you’ll like this one. ↩︎
  11. Very catchy, also an excellent pick. ↩︎
  12. I’ve been getting more and more excited for this album over the past month, I’m quite looking forward to it. ↩︎
  13. Again, an excellent addition in the Haux vein. ↩︎
  14. Eventually I’m gonna have an entire playlist of songs that I picked because they reminded me of the excellent sound design in the opening to Passengers. ↩︎
  15. Hey, Bon Iver is back! Bon Iver is great. ↩︎
  16. Lyrically, at least, this is sorta… Evanescence-y? ↩︎
  17. Similar song on this list: “How You’ll Be Remembered.” Sadness and piano, definitely my aesthetic. ↩︎
  18. Reminds me of when I used to listen to Noon Pacific. I wonder if they’ve stopped doing the whole “Spotify-only” thing?
    Follow-up, having taken a break to go check: no, they’ve gone deeper into it and won’t even show song names now. Exclusivity: it’ll reduce your audience!
