  1. From what I’ve heard about the awards, I think Billie Eilish is the President of Music now? No pressure. 
  2. Haux always has this wonderful ethereal quality 
  3. This one makes me wonder how Apple Music gets their lyric data – it has lyrics, but not the live-scrolling kind, so what’s the difference in data source? 
  4. Shoutout to my sister, who made me listen to this: you were right, I did like it! 
  5. All of Leonard Cohen’s music is just him growling into a microphone and I kinda love it. (That said, lyrically, I’m… not a fan of this one.) 
  6. I wonder how many songs named ‘Sober’ I’ve got in my library? It feels like it’s a weirdly high number. 
  7. This one always just makes me think of Daja from Tamara Pierce’s Circle of Magic series. 
  8. Found this one while putting together a data visualization of my music library over the past few years. I should post that! Or maybe I already have? Hmm. 
  9. I quite like Barrio, but Rapide knocks it out of the park. 
  10. Something about Kodaline is just… great to harmonize to. 
  11. This one also made it onto my “I just want the quiet songs” playlist, which usually takes longer. It’s nice.
