Kelly’s Thoughts

Songs That Helped Heal My Inner Child

Folks, the new year is settling in. Normally, this is the time of the month when everything starts to go to shit. But this year’s feeling different. If you’ve been around here, you may recall my 10 year long January sucks curse I talked about last year. Well, I think…

My 2022 Album of the Year: Apocalypse Whenever by Bad Suns

Have you ever felt like you were living on a precipice? Like you were always one small step from completely turning your life around from a dark place and before you knew it, you’d made the transition? Well in all my reflecting on this year, this is the best way…

What We’ve Been Listening To: Fall 2022

Wow, I can’t believe we’re so close to the end of 2022. This season has been wild in the best way. What started off with me in a weird headspace at the end of the summer has left me feeling the best I’ve felt in a long time and making…

New Music Crush: The Never Ending Fall

ALEXA PLAY GRACE (I THINK I’M IN LOVE AGAIN) BY BAD SUNS RIGHT THE FUCK NOW. OR I’M IN LOVE WITH YOU BY THE 1975 — IDK ONE OF THOSE…OR BOTH AT THE SAME TIME. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. Y’all — I have a new band crush and this…

The Long and Chaotic History of The Black Eyed Peas

Ok, don’t ask me why, but I’ve done considerable research and pondering about The Black Eyed Peas throughout my life. Like, yeah I can turn up to their music like a normal human. But when I’m not turning up, I have so many questions. So, I’ve felt the need to…

SOUNDS LIKE FEELS LIKE turns 3!

Wowowowowow I can’t believe it’s been three whole years since I started this blog. My little Scorpio baby is growing! It’s been a helluva year. I know it’s been rather quiet around here: I haven’t posted super frequently in the last few months, my collaborators have been on a break…

Spooky Songs Vol. 3

Well ghosts and ghouls, it’s time for my annual spooky songs playlist. And I know it’s been a while since I’ve been brutally honest on here, so why not lean into the messy. Scorpio season kinda demands it. This year — because being in a full year of therapy has…

New Music Crush: Maggie Lindemann

Hiiii everybody! Ok so first of all, I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted. Life’s been chaotic in both good and bad ways. But believe me, we have a lot to catch up on. Starting with a New Music Crush. Honestly, nothing helps me tap into my…

What We’ve Been Listening To: Summer 2022

To quote the iconic “Smooth” by Rob Thomas and Santana, yeah it’s a hot one. This season has been wild yet life giving to say the least. Thankfully the summer tunes have been as hot as the weather. To wrap up Summer 2022, I’m sharing some of the songs on…

Lindsey Buckingham: The Best Guitarist of All Time

Alrighty folks, I’m long overdue for a Fleetwood Mac rant and after an insane recent concert, I have decided it’s time to rant about the incredible talent that is Lindsey Buckingham. I had the privilege of seeing The Killers in concert last Saturday and when I say it was a…

FEELS LIKE: James Bay Makes Me Want To Fall in Love

FEELS LIKE is our artist spotlight series where we introduce you to artists we love and talk about the way they process life through music, just like we do here! This exclusive from James Bay was made possible by one of our followers, Caitlin, who works at 1824 (Universal Music’s…

SOUNDS LIKE: My Songwriting Origins Vol. 1

I saw TikTok so jarring last Saturday morning that it felt like a personal attack. And I have to talk about it. When I was 14 and getting into of the world of music outside of the Jonas Brothers and Radio Disney, these were the songs and artists I gravitated…

Summer Fruits

Summer is by far the best time for fruit. We got watermelon, peaches, all the berries, cherries, passion fruit, apricots, and so much more just sitting perfectly to be harvested and eaten right away. As someone who’s kind of enamored with idea of eating seasonally, it totally makes sense why…

LIVE and In the Feels: The Halsey Redemption Arc

I think I might’ve found my musical key to help bridge the gap between high school, college, and my young adulthood. And it comes from an artist that high school and college me definitely least expected. I’m talking about Halsey. Now, I understand that Halsey is a polarizing figure to…

Songs to Fall Madly in Love with Me To

It’s been some time since I posted on a Friday huh? Well, we’ve been in busy times to say the least: going to my friend Kyle’s wedding, getting and recovering from COVID, my sister and her babies in town, Roe vs. Wade getting overturned, starting with a new therapist, me…

Anger as Protest (Songs for Womankind)

Hi folks. I wasn’t planning on doing a post this week but I’m making this playlist for myself because I need it right now. If you haven’t heard, Roe vs. Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court and in a Pontius Pilate-esque turn of events, abortion rights have been turned…

What We’ve Been Listening To: Spring 2022

And just like that, the temperatures have gone up and spring has come and gone. This season was filled with ups and downs, moments of pure fun and moments of pure isolation. But I have to admit, the music released this spring did NOT disappoint. To wrap up Spring 2022,…

Shut Up and Dance: From College Dance Parties to Weddings

“Oh don’t you dare look back, just keep your eyes on me. I said you’re holding back, she said shut up and dance with me…”Shut Up and Dance, WALK THE MOON The college days nostalgia continues, but this time with a very special reason. My dear friend Kyle Rogan (a…

SOUNDS LIKE: Summer 2017

Panic! At the Disco coming out of the woodworks with new music since 2018 has me feeling particularly feral and nostalgic for the summer I fell in love them. And it’s funny how life that summer and life right now feel energetically similar. Let’s go back to Summer 2017 to…

Hot Girl Bass Grooves

Look, I’m not saying the new Harry Styles album had everything to do with this week’s playlist…but he had at least something to do with this week’s playlist. The clear influence of slinky disco over a few Harry’s House tracks got me realizing that I’ve really been vibing with what…

Going on a Clear Your Mind Drive

Do you ever get so stuck on a feeling that you realize you need a way to ground yourself? I know I do and while I rely on songwriting, prayer, and just plain venting to someone I trust, that doesn’t always help. Sometimes you just need an escape to just…

New Music Crush: Alfie Templeman

Well, I really don’t know what to tell y’all about my life these days. I’m really still sitting here with my head on fire. Low key I’m feeling delusional and slightly all over the place: I’m flying high with fun work developments most days and then in completely emotional disarray…

2022 Festival Season Forecast

This is Kelly Rodriguez reporting live from her bedroom and this is your 2022 festival season forecast. Ok formalities aside: Weekend 1 of Coachella officially kicks off festival season and as much as I love the idea of a music festival, it is simply not possible for me to go…

SOUNDS LIKE: New Orleans April 2022

So uhh, I have one question for y’all. Ya like jazz? Ok well, Bee Movie reference aside, I’m back from a week-long break where I visited New Orleans for the first time. In an effort to start processing it, I’m gonna reflect with my favorite lens: music. I have this…

FEELS LIKE: Spectre Jones

Y’all, I’ve been wanting to start this series since the beginning of this blog. I’m PUMPED. Welcome to FEELS LIKE, our artist spotlight series where we introduce you to artists we love and talk about the way they process life through music, just like we do here! And we’re starting…

What We’ve Been Listening To: Winter 2021

Wowowowow, what a winter. It seems like overnight we went from cold and dark days to the sun and new flower blooms popping up. I’m pretty sad that 2021 ended on a really sucky tone and of course, there’s always something energetically off with January (for my last 10 years…

Why “drivers license” is the 2021 Song of the Year

January 2021 was quite a time, wasn’t it? Covid cases were raging and causing lockdowns, vaccines were just starting to be distributed, and everyone was reeling from a year that felt like it was ripped out of a history book. In my eyes, there’s only one song that seems to…

Can’t Get You Out of My Mind: “Sister Ray” by Foxes

You know I’ve been dying to live like this…Sister Ray, Foxes Phew, February was a WHIRLWIND in the best way possible. Like, for me, January was January and then Miss February stepped out in her sparkly boots like “girl, it’s time to move FORWARD!” There’s one song that seems to…

Vibing with Japanese City Pop

Tokyo, Japan is one of my favorite places on earth. I visited for a four day-weekend back in March 2016 and I’ve spent so much time daydreaming about going back to visit the one city I’ve been to that actually overwhelmed me. (In the best way possible of course, four…

To All the Songs Called Boyfriend I’ve Ever Loved

It is HILARIOUS to me how many songs there are out there named “Boyfriend.” As someone who’s never officially had someone they can call their boyfriend and is not in a rush for that either, I have no choice but to laugh. I mean, I guess there really is so…

Kelly’s Musical Birth Chart

Hi, if you’ve read my last few posts, you might be concerned with the state of my mental health. And you would be right, it’s been shit. However, we are finally moving out of January’s shadow and I refuse to let that energy define the next year of my life.…

Oh, You Have a Savior Complex Too?

Hi, it’s me again. Eden’s been busy with work and I don’t want her to run herself into the ground. Also, I’m not done being self-deprecating in January. However, I do want to talk about a toxic thought pattern that I’m learning to let go of. If you’ve read any…

Albums of All Time: After Laughter by Paramore

Desperate times call for desperate measures. And by desperate measures, I mean pulling out my go-to albums for hard times so I can leave them on repeat for comfort.  Paramore’s After Laughter album is a masterclass in sitting with uncomfortable sadness, anger, forgiveness, and difficult times in general but not…

SOUNDS LIKE: January Sucks

Once upon a time in January 2020, I made a playlist called “A Little January Optimism” with the intention of trying to break my longstanding curse of something going wrong every January since 2012. And well, we all know what ensued in 2020…thanks Corona. The fact that Miss Rona is…

My 2021 Album of the Year: Rainbow Mixtape by COIN

2021, I cannot believe we are at the end of the year. It’s been a weird year filled with so much joy and frustration, blessings and breakthroughs, and it sucks that the end of the year feels exactly like the end of 2020, a forced, cautious optimism that heavily leans…

What We’ve Been Listening To: Fall 2021

You know you’re heading into winter when you’re ACTIVELY fighting your end of year existential crisis while singing Christmas carols. Well, I just want to collect my hipster/trend predictor badge for calling out sad girl fall before everybody jumped in on it. Thaaaank you. There were so many great releases…

Same Title, Different Song Vol. 2: The Beatles Edition

I’ve been having one of my “dang the Beatles are SO GOOD” moments lately because I’ve been watching Peter Jackson’s Get Back documentary on Disney+ since Thanksgiving. I really appreciate how the documentary has demystified that era for me. I really thought they were at each other’s throats with the…

So You Gotta Leave Your Job…

Wow, I can’t believe that a year ago I bravely broke up with my job. It feels like just yesterday I was diplomatically trying to talk about it when I was obsessed with “Sports Car” by Valley. Y’all, I was so burned out that instead of leaving because I got…

New Music Crush: Magdalena Bay

Ah yes, let’s once again thank the magical world of TikTok for some new music. Although I have a running list of artists I’ve discovered via TikTok, this duo has jumped out at me in a way that makes me feel ahead of the curve. Magdalena Bay, made up of…

The Ethereal Femme Fatale

A woman who is intelligent and also knows how to weaponize her beauty: there’s nothing more dangerous than that. There’s nothing more powerful than that.- Megan Fox I recently talked with my close friend Megan (not Fox) about Marilyn Monroe. Megan told me this story of how Marilyn was walking…

SOUNDS LIKE FEELS LIKE 2.0 is coming…

Happy 2nd Birthday SOUNDS LIKE FEELS LIKE. It’s been two years since I launched this project and it’s been a wild time so far. I started this blog with the intention of creating a community around the human element of music: our emotions. I had so many ideas from the…

Spooky Songs Vol. 2

You’ve heard of bad and bougie, now get ready for sad and spooky. Halloween is here and idk about y’all but I feel like I’m pulling teeth to try to rally the festive spirit. Like I’m literally hopping on a plane this weekend to visit my niece and nephew with…

LIVE and In the Feels: ACL 2021 Recap

We haven’t ventured too much into the emotional impact of live music on the blog yet, but I can speak for both Eden and Joe when I say that there’s something cathartic about seeing and experiencing music live. Last weekend I went to my first music festival, Austin City Limits.…

SOUNDS LIKE: Late Night Oldies

There’s something really magical about the nighttime and the way music just hits different past midnight. One of my favorite things/worst habits I picked up in high school was writing essays throughout an entire night. What I mean by that is I would start brainstorming the structure of an AP…

A Thank You Letter to Bad Suns

Y’all. I waited TWO YEARS for what I got to do this week. By that I’m referring to seeing Bad Suns live and in person again. If you can recall the first time I mentioned this band, it was one of the first posts I ever created and spilled all…

New Music Crush: Samia

“I only write songs about things that I’m scared of, so here, now you’re deathless in art…”- Is There Something in the Movies?, Samia Ok, not gonna lie…I saw this one coming. I’ll explain exactly what I mean. Today, I’m talking about my latest new music crush, Samia. Samia, aka…

The Musical Loves of My Life: Shakira

When I was two years old, I had one goal in my life and one goal only. And that was to be Shakira. Twenty three years later, I have some different and more concrete goals but I still look to Shakira for a reminder of who I am, where I…

What We’ve Been Listening To: Summer 2021

Ah yes, Labor Day Weekend, the unofficial end of summer. School’s starting again, the sun is starting to go down sooner, it’s getting colder (or if you’re in LA you’re waiting to smell smoke from a nearby wildfire), but also it’s time to start reflecting on what the heck just…

Eden + Kelly: The Playlist

Four score and seven years ago, I met one of my best friends for the first time. She’s always been one of the coolest people I’ve ever known and oh man, I’m so excited to introduce her as a new guest contributor here at SOUNDS LIKE FEELS LIKE. Wow, I…

Why It’s Time for A Buckingham Nicks Re-Release

One thing you will quickly learn after knowing me for some time is that I love Fleetwood Mac. And it’s not a casual love — it’s a “I spent the entire summer before I started college researching everything I could about them” kind of love. So yeah, without under exaggerating,…

Same Title, Different Song Vol. 1

One of my favorite music phenomena is how you can like two songs that have the same title but sound totally different. I started working on this playlist because I equally enjoyed listening to two songs called “My Type” by Saint Motel and by Saweetie. It was funny to me…

The Musical Loves of My Life: The Killers

Welcome to The Musical Loves of My Life, a new series similar to the New Music Crush, except we’re talking about artists I’ve loved for much of my life. You might know these artists by one or a couple songs, but I’m here to fangirl about them and tell you…

I’m Not Bitter Anymore, Just Petty

You know what’s a curse put on the human brain? The fact that we remember people’s birthdays that are no longer relevant in our lives. I have a lot of dear friends whose birthdays are in July. It was really selfish of me to openly tell them last year that…

Summer Dream Pop

Don’t wake me, I’m living in a goddamn day dream, nothing ever lasts as long as you want it to, as long as I’m next to you. I’m feeling like the sun never sets, that summer was endless…- Heaven is a Place in My Head, Bad Suns Guess who no…

SOUNDS LIKE: A Conversation About Classical Music

Ok folks, let’s just take a moment to thank TikTok, because we’ve got a special treat today. I recently connected with an incredibly talented TikTok creator who I’ve been following for a while because of his refreshing take on classical music. Joe Sedarski is a student at Boston University who…

New Music Crush: Arlo Parks

“Suddenly he started screaming, Caroline, I swear to God I’ve tried, I swear to God I’ve tried…” – Caroline, Arlo Parks Oh man, I have been waiting to talk about this New Music Crush. Arlo Parks is the musical poet I’ve been looking for and honestly aspire to be. Please…

Quintessential Queer Artists Vol. 1

Happy Pride Month everybody! I wanted to make this playlist to make a statement. I consider myself an ally to the LGBTQIA+ community and realize I’ve never been as vocal about it as I should. I didn’t know that the queer community even existed before high school (that’s on living…

AAPI Excellence Vol. 1

Happy AAPI Heritage Month! If you didn’t know, May is Asian-American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month. Especially with the rise in violence against AAPI people in America, it is important to learn about the complicated history of AAPI people in America and highlight their contributions to food, culture, and more.…

New Music Crush: Rina Sawayama

“Excuse my ego, can’t go incognito, every time you see me it’s like winning big in Reno…”- Comme Des Garçons (Like The Boys), Rina Sawayama Ah yes, another new music crush that helped me get through 2020. I’ve been waiting to scream and shout about this one. Rina Sawayama is…

A Little Space

In the throes of the pandemic, everyone has looked for some sort of escapism. Whether it was getting the lost in the world of movies or television/streaming shows, regressing to nostalgic obsessions, or just dissociating from reality while in lockdown, we all had our choice to cope. I’ve been particularly…

The Modern Voices of American Music

Hi, so first of all, to quote Phoebe Bridgers, I’m a liar who lies. I wanted to get this post out last week but I didn’t. I was dealing with a really bad migraine on and off all last week and couldn’t muster up the strength to post. Also, not…

The Founders of American Music

Re: the blog post and playlist I made on Juneteenth last year, this is (chronologically) the first in the series. I’ll be focusing on modern legends from the 90s to today next week. The artists I’m featuring here are just a few major artists that have gone on to profoundly…

It’s The Freakin’ Weeknd

I don’t really care for big sports games. But I do like celebrating the Super Bowl. I love the ‘let’s throw the diet out the window’ snacks, friends and family coming together to pretend to care about American football, the outrageous commericals…but mostly, the halftime show. Honestly, the halftime show…

New Music Crush: The Aces

“I’m stuck, babe, stuck with nowhere to go…”- Stuck, The Aces Yeah, ok I’m SUPER late with posting about this new music crush. Why? Do I even have to say it? We’re all thinking it. Ugh, well, 2020 sucked. I’m done sugar coating it or pretending it wasn’t terrible year.…

Dancing Through Pain

So LA has been hitting rock bottom when it comes to COVID cases. One out of every six people in LA is dying from COVID. I am absolutely terrified. I do not want to leave my house for anything, even though I committed to volunteering somewhere every Saturday. Literally, my…

My 2020 Album of the Year: Petals for Armor by Hayley Williams

“Wrap yourself in petals for armor…” – Simmer, Hayley Williams When you think about soldiers going into battle, you look for tough materials — steel, titanium, bronze, anything that looks like it can withstand anything. But is that the way to handle growing from trials? I’d say no. The concept…

Can’t Get You Out of My Head: Sports Car by Valley

I have so much to catch up on. I stopped blogging after June because I started feeling really spent. My full time job was really starting to take its toll on me. I really just wanted to quit to spend my time learning what I could to combat my own…

this is america

A revolution is upon us. And it is long overdue. America loves Black culture — music, fashion, slang, comedy, food, the list goes on. But at the same time, racially motivated violence and acts of hate continue after generations of abuse. How many more times must a Black person in…

SOUNDS LIKE: Shanghai 2015

Five years ago today, I boarded a plane for the very first time to Shanghai, China for the most memorable summer I’ve ever had. That summer in Shanghai was magical, full of adventure, and my first taste of real independence. I’m gonna reminisce a little here. To prepare for the…

Love In the Time of Corona

We’ve been in quarantine in the US for more than a month now (officially). Getting used to the new normal has been hard for everyone to varying degrees. From missing close friends and our normal lives to losing loved ones to the virus, we’re all feeling a sense of loss.…

Can’t Get You Out of My Head: “Friends” by Sure Sure

Welcome to a new series I call “Can’t Get You Out of My Head.” This is where I ramble on about a song that is so completely stuck in my head that I need to scream to the void about it. Yes, I’m referencing the Kylie Minogue song. Ok first…

Lonely Songs for Lonely People

So, I guess we’re all (unofficially) in quarantine now here in the US. For the record, we’ve already known that there’s a loneliness epidemic but it’s very possible that it’ll be exacerbated by ol’ Corona. As someone who’s struggled with loneliness, now more than ever do I find it important to reach…

New Music Crush: Saint Motel

“She doesn’t bother finding love,There is no man that’s good enough,Lucky sevens come up eights,Rabbits feet won’t help your fate…”-Ace in the Hole, Saint Motel Welcome to another, ‘she fell in love with a band at a concert’ story. I need to realize that this happens way more often than…

Your New Friendly Neighborhood Punk-Ass Kids

Let me provide a visual: so you just moved into a new suburban neighborhood and all of a sudden, some punk-ass kids riding on their skateboards pull up to you. At first, you’re like ‘who do these kids think they are? what do they want? how do I avoid this…

To the Love of My Life vol. 1

One of my most formative experiences as a kid and a teenager was being part of church choir. It was where I learned to play guitar, sing with all my heart, and where I learned about the hidden power of love songs. I grew up Catholic and as a kid,…

ew it’s valentine’s day

For the record, I’ve always had the mentality that Valentine’s Day should celebrate more than romantic love. Like, I once hosted a live radio show in high school where I took requests and dedications on Valentine’s Day. It was fun, and further proof that I’ve been brimming with the need…

24 Kelly Magic

It’s my blog and I’ll make a playlist if I want to. Instead of getting all nostalgic (aka how I always live my life), I’ve decided to make a playlist that explains how I want to live my life as a 24 year old. I’ve been really good at getting…

A Beginner’s Guide to: Shakira and JLo

Dearly beloved SOUNDS LIKE FEELS LIKE familia, I’m sure you know that the SuperBowl is this coming Sunday. Oh you didn’t? It’s ok…some of my coworkers thought it was later in Feb. But yeah, it’s this Sunday. And for me, this is probably the most important SuperBowl halftime performance to…

New Music Crush: Maggie Rogers

“If I was who I was before, then I’d be waiting at your door, but I cannot confess I am the same…”- Give a Little, Maggie Rogers Female singer-songwriters are, to me, one of the most powerful people in the world. It takes a pure talent and skill to communicate…

A Little January Optimism

Idk about you all but historically, my Januaries have been trash. I love the energy of a new year but there’s always something that puts a damper on my mood midway through the month. Well you know what January? Not this year!!! Anyways, I made this playlist so we can…

The Road to Restoration: A 2019 Reflection

Folks, it’s time for my yearly reflection and it’s gonna be a good one. I normally just type away on a Word document for this type of thing but now I have a platform! That being said though, I can’t be as “diary entry” here because #theinternetisforever. But ehh, y’all…

The Albums of (My) 2010s

The end of the decade is upon us. New Year’s Day is coming up fast and THERE IS SIMPLY NOT ENOUGH TO PROCESS THE FACT THAT I HAVE BEEN AWARE OF THE PAST 10 YEARS. My friend Aric was wise in creating his album list of the 2010s early. (Thanks…

The Taylor Swift Love/Hate Rollercoaster

I hope I’m not prematurely saying this, but Taylor Swift is a legend. Love her or hate her, she’s set records and impacted the music industry. In my lifetime (but mostly through the last 10 years), I’ve both hated her and loved her. But throughout the love/hate rollercoaster, I think…

How the Jonas Brothers Saved (My) 2019

Feature Photo Credit: The Miami New Times (Disclaimer: This post is purely about my love for the Jonas Brothers personally. I’ll talk about their artistry when they release more music, right now I just have so many feelings.) 2019 has been one of the best years of my life, but…

SOUNDS LIKE: The Rodriguez Family Household

Welcome to my “SOUNDS LIKE” series! This is where I recount specific parts of my life where I have strong musical memories. (I know it’s selfish, that’s why it’s on my blog.) If you look at the music I grew up listening to, you can clearly see how I got…

Thanksgiving Songs

I know everyone’s debating whether or not to listen to Christmas music already, but I am NOT HERE FOR THIS SO-CALLED THANKSGIVING ERASURE. Food, people you love, food, and just time to be thankful for what you’ve got. Why erase that? Did I mention the food?? There’s Halloween songs, there’s…

How Shawn Mendes Took Over the Spirit of Young Nick Jonas

This might be what some folks think of as a “hot take.” I was talking with a new friend at my church community group earlier this week (shout out to Shaina!) and we were talking about how familiar Shawn Mendes feels…because he basically picked up where Nick Jonas and the…

The Ultimate Girls’ Night Playlist 2019

I made this playlist for a purely selfish reason: I’m having a girls’ night out this weekend. I haven’t gone out with my gals in a while and especially heading towards the holiday season, I want to celebrate with them all the things each of us have been through this…

The Comeback Kids

Ok, people who know me personally: No, this is not only gonna be about the Jonas Brothers. (I will put forth my declaration of love to them later because I’m still processing, hold please.) Their comeback was a personal thing for me, however, they’re not the only kids that came back into…

Spooky Songs

Fear is a funny thing because it’s both something that can paralyze you and motivate you. Halloween and the spooky transitional season that it exists in (autumn in lay men’s terms) are a time to reflect on things that scare you, whether you’re going through a tough time or you’re…

New Music Crush: Bad Suns

All I wantAll I want is youYour violet dispositionMy unsound intuition…— Violet, Bad Suns So, I have this thing for rockstars. I’m not sure exactly when it started but I can say that Joe Jonas was definitely the first one to blame for setting the bar for my idea of…

Taste, taste, you can get a taste…

A why behind my choice of songs. Everyone has their own taste in music. It’s a collection of songs, artists, and genres that each person has taken an interest in for whatever reason. (I’ll probably research and blog about this later because it’s fascinating to me.) Allow me to explain…
