Top 100 Songs of the Decade

ny109-830_2015_194121_high

Throughout the next few weeks I will be releasing my favorite things of the decade. I’m launching it with my favorite songs of the decade, a big mix that is representative of what I was into most in the last ten years. I wanted to write a little bit about some of these songs but ended up not having the time or energy, having a two-year old who is currently draped over me as I am writing this certainly makes it difficult. I attached a video of each song–its own time consuming process–so if you’re interested you can listen to each song. If you’re really interested, and you have Apple Music, I can send you the playlist. I haven’t posted it because nobody has Apple Music. Go ahead and comment if you do and I’ll post it.
