favorite songs 1st quarter of 2021, playlist, cassette cover, raccoon
New year, new songs, new reflections and awareness, finally new hope. Here are my favorite songs of the 2021 winter months (January, February, March 2021).

Naturally, quite a few of the music that came out at the beginning of the year has been influenced by the more solitary, introspective, even anxiety-driven life that most of us have lived over the last year. But there’s also always just great dancing, running, and singing-along music. Thankfully!
