What I’m Listening To: August 2022

               When Taylor Swift said, “August slipped away into a moment of time”, she really nailed it. Somehow, this month has both gone by in a blur and dragged. Maybe it’s because I’ve been preparing for The Getaway or busy helping where I can; all I do know is the favorite songs of August came… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: August 2022

What I’m Listening To: July 2022

               July not only brought the heat, but also a fine selection of music. I listened to jazz and classic rock while writing. Pop and alt rock kept me company while cooking or driving. Soundtracks and scores made me love their films and series more. Maybe it was too hot for midnight dance parties, but… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: July 2022

What I’m Listening To: June 2022

               Two years ago, in the midst of isolation and boredom and a search for something to do, I began tracking my favorite songs each month. That first list didn’t have any rules—just vibes—but it created an outline for what was to come. Here we are now, twenty-three monthly, two annual, one honorable mention, and… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: June 2022

What I Listened To: 2012

            Not only is this June the second anniversary of my What I’m Listening To column, but it’s also been ten years since I started keeping track of my annual favorites. That initially began as YouTube videos, transformed to iPod playlists for a few years, and has been a feature here on the blog since… Continue reading What I Listened To: 2012

What I’m Listening To: May 2022

            You know that feeling when the weather warms up and you want to blast music like every day is a party? Where your daily drive feels more special because the sun is shining, the sky is a gorgeous shade of blue, and the radio is playing your song? That dancing in the kitchen, singing… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: May 2022

What I’m Listening To: April 2022

            The first quarter of 2022 seemed like a crawl musically. I found comfort in the old rather than the new, or sought out silence. April, at the very least, seems like a new note for the year ahead. A lot of my reoccurring artists make appearances on this list with some recent finds. I… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: April 2022

What I’m Listening To: March 2022

            March took its time finding a groove. Coming from a relatively quiet February, my musical moods constantly shifted this month as I discovered new and old connections. Some of them were directly tied with current events—finding a form of escapism through relatable songs. Others came and stole my attention in the way certain ear… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: March 2022

What I’m Listening To: February 2022

            When I say February was rough… I mean it was the kind of rough where I spent several days not listening to music. Not for comfort or emotional release. Not in the background. Nothing. I was ready and expecting the end results to be slim or full of repeats but, somehow, I did find… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: February 2022

What I’m Listening To: January 2022

Every year brings with it some hope: new songs and albums to be released, new artists to discover or debut, new sounds for any emotion, old trends or favorites to make a comeback into the rotation. As far as my January—the beginning of a new musical year of What I’m Listening To—we can already see… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: January 2022

What I’m Listening To: 2021 Honorable Mentions

            This has been my first full year of doing What I’m Listening To and, as many know, I committed early on to a series of rules to control what could be a list of every given song I enjoyed in a month. However, in cutting down each month to 20 songs, I’ve found that… Continue reading What I’m Listening To: 2021 Honorable Mentions
