Spotify playlists for your every mood

Following Spotify’s “2018 Wrapped” promotion, you may have seen quite a bit of music flowing through your social media. The promotion listed listeners’ favorite artists, top songs and total time spent listening to music throughout 2018. As exhibited by the social media blowup, music holds a big place in a lot of people’s lives. For some, it’s simply a form of escape – a type of relaxation. For others, music can be an output for emotions and life experiences.

Art imitates life imitates art, if you will.

For this reason, I’ve built Spotify playlists of some old songs and some new songs for just about every mood (as a way to procrastinate the dread that accompanies Dead Week, of course).
