I generally listen to music when I write. Sometimes, to block out things going on around me; sometimes, just to have background vibes happening. All of the songs on this list informed my writing and got me through this year: a mish mash of styles with heavy reliance (inexplicably) on banjo playing and synth-pop (always in the mix). The anomaly maybe: Ten Thousand Hours (Macklemore/Ryan Lewis), which has been my fight song for a long while.

So, so grateful for music. I’d be lost without it.
