May '17 Spotify Playlist

13 June 2017


Better late than never, right?

I usually post my playlists for a certain month at the end of that month, which doesn't really make sense, considering naming the playlist after the month that people will actually be listening to it makes way more sense. So that's what I'm going to try and do from now on.
And real talk, I need to find a better visual representation for my playlists than my current shitty Canva 'collages'. But hey, blogging is a process of growth so things will get better, somehow, someday. 

That being said let's move on the the actual playlist.
Good weather makes me happy, and we've had a lot of it. And it didn't just kinda 'lift me up', I've felt like a straight up ray of sunshine during the whole of May and this playlist sure reflects that. 
Everything's a bit softer, happier and on average 23% less depressing than previous playlists. 

This is the part where I initially wrote some kind of apology for the amount of Harry Styles songs in the playlist, but then I realised that's not something I should apologise for. Your taste in music or any kind of cultural consumption or self expression is not something you should be ashamed of, or apologise for, ever, EVER.
When you see people enjoy or do certain things that make them happy and don't harm you, leave them be. There's absolutely nothing cool about shaming people for liking things that are too popular, obscure or basic. If certain music makes certain people happy let them be happy.
If you find joy in listening to a certain artist, you wan't the whole world to experience that warm, fuzzy feeling as well, no? I don't see the point to people taking pride in listening to artists that are unknown and wanting them to stay that way. If you truly like that artist and look up to them in some way you'd want them to have ambition and get somewhere with their music, right? And if that music makes you happy you want nothing more than for as many people as possible to experience the positive vibes you get from that music as well, don't you? But hey, that's just my opinion.

Enough ranting, here's the playlist.
