March 5-Star Song Fridays

One of my favorite new Friday rituals is that when I get off work (usually a little early since it’s Friday), I put on my “5 Star” playlist (i.e. a playlist of all my favorite songs — the playlist itself has 864 songs while my entire iTunes library has a little over 65,000 songs: so these are the top songs) and then I narrow that down even more by listening to my favorites of my favorites — essentially “6 Star” songs. It’s a nice way to end the week and feels a bit nostalgic (I’ve noticed that most of the 5-star songs are over 5 years old). I was telling one of my friends about this and got the idea to post some of the songs I’ve listened to lately. Not sure if I’ll do this regularly or what. Check em out!
