Despite the lack of updates these past several months, I have still managed to (for the most part) keep up listening habits. This has allowed me to at the very least keep a running list of songs that have been especially important to me this year. The tracks that racked up the most listens, stuck in my brain long after the headphones came off, and just generally made any troubles a bit easier to traverse.
I don’t want to get too deep into the hows or whys that i have chosen any of these particular tracks. It’s just my hope that the 30 songs listed will maybe find some new fans in those of you willing to give them a go. Naturally, just click the track and give it a stream.
The Radiohead tracks probably represent my favorite and most listened sounds of the year, so the rest are all presented in alphabetical order. Enjoy and have a wonderful holiday season!
////FAVES OF 2016////
Radiohead’s “Present Tense” and “True Love Waits” - Two songs that have existed in various forms for years, but found their way onto Radiohead’s latest masterpiece, A Moon Shaped Pool, in stunning and powerful new ways. They were but two of several tracks on that album that could have made this list, but they ended up with the most listens over the last six months - therefore, they top my list. And it pleases me to no end to have them in my life.

Apparently room mate has been passive-aggressively hiding utensils because I was “damaging” them this whole time. She left me a note about how she was “telling [the landlord] you were responsible”.
I’m really, really upset and hurt. If she’d said something MONTHS ago I would have just brought my own utensils from home and sidestepped this entire problem. But instead she… hid them? I kept getting halfway through cooking things and then the spatula wasn’t where I expected it to be, it wasted probably cumulative hours of my time and some things got burnt because I had nothing to stir them with - and.
Still missing you
And I can’t
See the end of this
Just wanna feel your kiss
Against my lips
And now all this time
Is passing by
But I still can’t seem to tell you why
It hurts me every time I see you
Realize how much I need you
I will literally never get over how Jane Austen, in 1813, wrote a man accepting rejection by saying “well women always play hard to get so I’ll take your no as a yes”. And this is still accurate to this day.
