I’ve been thinking about this for a while and I’m finally starting a music playlist😂🎉
Every now and then I do share songs on my public Facebook page that have meaningful or interesting narratives etc, but I also want to share music that is on my current playlist!
The reasons are two-fold… Firstly, I want to share different music with you. Secondly, I want to create a ‘sound diary’. I think memories can be trapped, or ‘saved’ within our senses. For me ‘smell’ and ‘sound’ are the most potent for triggering memories. My theory is that if I have a playlist of songs to look back on, I can remember certain memories from the periods of time I was listening to them in. Let’s trial this till the new year👀
I’m thinking this will be a weekly thing, unless I’m stuck listening to more or less the same songs, in which case it will be less frequent. I’ll aim for about 5 songs in each regular upload, and who knows, some songs that didn’t make it in one week will more than likely roll over to the next. Due to the 5 song limit I’ll be going for the songs I’ve been listening to the most, rather than the ones I just think are unique (I can share those separately, and actually I have a few lined up). Also, I will try to limit explicit language with the songs that make it to the playlist (not just in terms of swear words lol), or opt for ‘clean’ versions if I think you really gotta hear it. Lastly, in the probable case that I really am stuck on the same songs, I’ll probably add in a few that are ‘throwbacks’ to me because I rinsed them during a different period of the year, but will basically be new to the playlist✌️
The first upload will be a longer one to keep us going. I’m going to share some of the songs I’ve been listening to over the past few weeks, and in less chronological order then I’d usually hope for. Let’s see if I can make this a regular Sunday thing so you get time to possibly add some to your weekly playlist!

Also I’m debating whether I should simply add the songs to the playlist and share it to Facebook, or do the upload and separately give some points introducing the songs in a blogpost, like I have done in this post. I think due to tiredness I will probably do the former on a regular basis, and occasionally add a blog post for ‘stand out’ choices. What are your thoughts? 🤔
I just realised the title makes it seem like I’m finally debuting as an artist😝 AND I just reached 700 subscribers on YouTube😂🎉-a humble feat we can celebrate through music. I’d love to keep you all involved in this playlist process, so please feel free to send me songs you think I may like and maybe they’ll make it to the playlist one day~ 😉
I think my music variety may surprise you hehe. If you make a public playlist, good luck 世界!

Guess what, I kind of already know what will be in next week’s playlist lol
