    If Twice's FANCY YOU and Feel Special were one whole album, it might've made my top 20.

    Yerin Baek did not need to have her boot on my neck with her new album.

  15. Starting in the 00's, I would make a 'best of the year' mix and put it on a cd. Of course, due to space, it would only be like 20 songs.

    In the 'Spotify-era'. I bumped it up 30 songs, but even then was feeling constrained.

    Then, in the last couple of years, I've been discovering so much new music, I needed a better format for myself, to chronicle my year in review! So, let year I started making two year-end playlists.

    One consists of my 10 albums of the year & has my three fave songs per album. The other playlist is my 'Top 40' songs...that were not on said top 10 album. (i.e. 'everything else'.)

    My top 10 albums of 2019 & favorite 3 songs per album

    #10: Remind Me Tomorrow : Sharon Van Etten
    Comeback Kid
    You Shadow

    #9: Hey, I’m Just Like You : Tegan and Sara

    I’ll Be Back Someday

    Glide Dog
    Electric Heights

    Sight Of You
    Mine Right Now
    Don’t Feel Like Crying

    #3: Portraits : Louise Burns

    Personal Best
    Take Care Of Yourself*
    (* my fave album of the year gets 4 songs on my ‘Best of 2019 albums playlist’, gets to be track one, & gets the honor of naming said playlist. This year that honor goes to Maisie.)
