Dear world,

I have perfectly abysmal taste in music. I KNOW THIS. And while normally I am totally okay with the fact that my listening habits match those of a 16 year old girl who steals her mom’s top 40 records from the 90s, with Riot Fest happening this weekend I am starting to realize that I need to broaden my horizons a bit. Granted, I can listen to pretty much whatever is on at the time and enjoy it, but I don’t know enough about anything to listen to different artists with a purpose.

Right now what I’ve been doing is listening to CHIRP radio online, and trying to make note of the songs that I really like, and then googleling the hell out of them to try and find something similar. But that only gets me so far.

So, dear readers, I need your help! What should I be listening to?

To give you an example of the hole that I am currently in, I have listed my go-to Spotify playlist below. I am not knocking on any of the songs on here (obviously I love them), I am simply using this list as an example of where I am right now, musically speaking.

(the list is really long, so I am putting it at the bottom)

But seriously, I promise that I do like to listen to lots of different things, I just don’t usually. So, if you have any suggestions on where to begin, pass them along!  Somebody told me that I need/ought to buy a record player too. So then I could have albums. I miss albums.  Although then that opens up a whole other can of worms, yeah? And nobody likes worms.

So what’s good?

Many thanks and much love,

me 🙂
