Hard Times by Paramore

Tuneful Tuesdays are my weekly song recommendations of the moment. I decided to skip the single song for this week and go with a whole mixtape. It’s been a minute since I’ve done one. This mix is inspired by the Spotify trend of using song titles to make your playlist. The title is inspired by…
