My life as a music major revolves around music, so choosing a narrow number of representative selections required some prioritizing. Of course, I would have loved to share Taylor Swift’s entire catalog, some tantalizing classical orchestral pieces, or wild mid-20th century jazz. I decided to choose a handful of oppositely titled song pairs to highlight the impossibility of summarizing my life’s soundtrack. Between those sets, I’ve interspersed some of my go-to jams for different moods. Hopefully, this playlist will tell you a bit about me and will be an enjoyable ride.
