This is part of a new series of monthly music playlists.

This past month, I spent a good amount of time on Spotify. Like an obscene amount of time. One thing I’ve been doing over the past year or so is writing down all the songs I listened to throughout the day as they play over my Bluetooth speakers— a “song of the day” list if you will.

After glancing at all 31 days of song lists (am I the only one who feels like this month has dragged on longer than others?), I found that there were certain songs that tended to pop up every day. Some were more contemporary than others, but each song had a good amount of airplay on my Spotify account.

Please enjoy my inaugural curated monthly playlist. Feel free to create this into a Spotify account, download the songs to Apple Music, etc. I hope they give you as much happiness as they have for me! :)
