In case you’re just joining us, the Best Year Ever mixtape is a nine-year tradition. It’s been so much fun to look back at what I listened to over the years.
I’m ending 2017 strong, and today, it’s my end of the year mixtape to close out what has ostensibly been a very weird year. The songs were pulled from my last.fm profile.
This year was a bit off, as a lot of my data was lost towards the end of summer because of iTunes and my last.fm desktop app wasn’t syncing properly. So, I used my most played for the past 90 days instead, which I think is far more indicative of the year I had. I feel like the first six months were a blur of anxiety that I’d rather forget. But these last few months have been amazing, and the music I listened to reflects that.
