At the end of each year I make a playlist encapsulating songs that meant something to me over the course of the past 12 months. Some are new songs, but many are old ones that have re-emerged for me in significance for some reason or another.
I give a CD of my yearly “soundtrack” to my girlfriends and family around the holidays.
But I mostly make this compilation of favorite songs for myself – I love having these yearly playlists on my ipod. It’s fun to go back and see how different each year has been.
My playlist this year – named “Hi-Lo Lo-Fi” – for your listening pleasure.
