And At Once I Knew I Was Not Magnificent …

Back in August I mentioned how much I love Spotify.  If you missed that post and want to check it out, it can be found here: If Life Could Be Forever One Instant, Would It Be The Moment You Met Me?.

When I discussed Spotify previously, I shared one of my recent playlists.  As I said in that post, I’ve always loved making playlists.  One of the things I like most about Spotify is the fact that I’m able to easily share the playlists I make (or individual songs, for that matter) with my friends through Facebook.  I used to share music with my friends in college quite a bit (my friend Lisa and I even used to have “listening parties for two” which involved sharing whatever new band/artist we’d discovered while talking and/or having snacks), so this feature brings me back to those simpler times.  It’s also useful considering I literally have friends scattered throughout the country (and the world, as one of my good friends is currently studying abroad in Europe).  Having the ability to immediately send them a song or playlist I think they might enjoy makes me feel closer to them … And that’s definitely nice.

I actually made this playlist a while ago before I had a couple of my girlfriends over for snacks and girl talk, but I still really enjoy listening to it.  There’s no real theme … These were just songs I thought might be nice for background music.  The title of this playlist is simply A Night In.

Again, I’m unable to post the actual playlist here (and yes, I realize this kind of makes me a shitty blogger).  I will, however, list out the songs with the hope that maybe someone will read this and feel inspired to check them out (or make a similar playlist of their own).
