Playlist – 23

Today is my 24th birthday.  So I decided to make a playlist of 23 amazing songs that were released in the time I was 23, August 25, 2013-August 24, 2014.   These are all songs I knew about during that time as well, and was repeatedly listening to throughout my 23rd year of existence.

I’ve never done this type of playlist before (and I know it’s not travel/placed related, sorry!)- it’s almost like a time capsule of music to illustrate my 23rd year.  Because music carries a lot of emotions and memories for me, years from now I’ll be able to look back on this and know exactly what kind of year 23 year old Arielle had.  I challenge everyone who reads this to see how they’d mark their year with music (and you may think it gets harder the older you get and the more songs you have to do, but I had a hard time just narrowing it down to 23).  This doesn’t take into account discoveries of older music I made during this year that may have had an effect on me, so it’s a good combination of what was going on in music at this time as well as what was going on in my head and music taste.  Hope you enjoy!
