My 2020 Playlist

Spotify

This year I am collating my ultimate music playlist on Spotify. I am adding songs that I like, songs that I have been recommended to listen to, and am also open to suggestions from friends too.

On New Year’s Day, I chose 20 songs at random and each Tuesday, or #TunesDay as I call it, will add 7 or more tracks. If you have a song for my playlist, please let me know.

This is the link to the Spotify playlist.
