Every month I make a fresh Spotify playlist and add whatever songs stick with me over the weeks. Sometimes they're new releases, sometimes they're old favorites of which I'm reminded, and sometimes they're recommendations from friends. Once I heard Cameron Crowe talk about how he made a mixtape every month growing up, and how these mix tapes functioned like a diary for him. Listening to any of his mixtapes immediately brought to mind where he was and what he was doing during that period of his life.
This month, my mixtape is filled with the sounds of longing for spring. New York has been slow to warm up, sometimes teasing us with a perfect day before plunging us back into the 40s (or lower, or with snow, at the beginning of the month). What's on your warm-weather playlist?
