Lists of Things: Playlists

Sounds of a Semester

During the semester, I ask students to share with me the name of a song that is either their current “earworm” (that song they play over and over again and can’t seem to get enough) or the song that feels like it describes their life in the present moment. It’s something I will continue to do going forward as well. I typically share my own current playlist with them in return. 

In alphabetical order by artist/band name.
