iliad // january '15 playlist
Recently, I've taken more to music and creating playlists according to what specific songs I listen to over and over from my favorite artists. The best part about music is that you can always find someone else who likes the same interests as you whether it's the same artist or similar sounds and vibes. I know some people think that being completely musically unique is the be-all-end-all but music is definitely what brings the people in my life together.

Since October, I've created at least one playlist per month based on which songs I can't stop playing or which holiday music I could actually stand or how I was feeling for a certain amount of days. I want to thank Will Darbyshire for unintentionally getting me in the habit of creating playlists and listening to new music more often. I've always had such a wide variety in music and it's always evident in my monthly playlists. Spotify has a great collection of artists available at the click of a button and playlists are so simple to make (and possibly hide). I did have a wonderful 8tracks account but for the most part, it's hard to list the name's of songs and know where to download them. So, I just stick to Spotify Premium.
