Okay, I’m doing this section a little bit differently. Please bear with me….

  • Tracks 1, 2, 5, 10, & 15 :: I can easily explain all five tracks by In This Moment being on this list by saying that I am utterly smitten with that band’s music.  I have listened to all of their music so much over the last year, it’s not even funny, especially their most recent album, Ritual.  And specifically Tracks 1, 2, 5, & 15 come from that newest album.
  • Tracks 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, & 14 :: These 11 tracks are in this list because they’re part of a fanmix I created for the EvilSwanQueen triad from Once Upon a Time over the summer.  I listened to these tracks constantly while creating the fanmix, so I’m not surprised that they made my top 100 list.
  • Tracks 16 & 53 are quite probably my favorite Tracy Bonham songs ever.  I would get into moods where I just couldn’t stop listening to both of them, especially Track 16.  It touches me on several levels.
  • Track 25 is my favorite P!nk song, especially the live version from the Funhouse tour DVD/CD.  It’s something that really hits me on a visceral level.
  • Track 29 is a song that really hits me and my best bish K.  We are incredibly blunt SagiBitches and this song just totally hits us perfectly.
  • Track 30 is a new favorite Michael W. Smith song that I found this past year.  It’s a personal mantra of sorts and also fits a number of the characters I write for, so I ended up listening to it a lot for inspiration.
  • Track 32 is my favorite Lady Gaga song.  I have a long history of obsession with Judas Iscariot, and this song just gives me all sorts of lovely vibes in that vein.  Plus?  It’s got a great beat!
  • Tracks 37 &  65 honestly blew me away.  I love both of the original songs, but find that I actually dig these covers even more.  And it’s a lot for me to admit that.
  • Tracks 59 & 84 came from the newest album by Mike & The Mechanics.  Both ended up being my favorites from the album pretty quickly on.
  • Track 67 is here because I completely fell in love with the theme to Wonder Woman.  Okay, let’s just be honest and say that I loved the movie a lot in general.  LOL

Overall, how do you feel about your playlist this year?
I’m actually laughing at my list and seeing just now obsessive I can get with music at times.  I mean, I already knew that about myself, but I rather liked seeing the reality to the theory.  I mostly listen to playlists I create or full albums on Spotify, and that shows in my top 100 songs.  I don’t think there was a single song on this list that I didn’t expect to be there.  LOL
