Music in December

In honor of the end of the year, I decided to create a playlist of my favorite songs that I listened to throughout the year and share my top five favorite albums from this year.

If you are in need of good music, I promise this playlist will deliver. You can find it here.

My Top 5 Favorite Albums of 2018, In Order:

Guide Me Back Home by City in Colour

I would, without a doubt, absolutely, and with complete lack of hesitation give my right index finger just to see Dallas Green live. Truly nothing compares to his magic. I will keep dreaming for now. This album is magnificent proof that the best music will always be simple.

Delta by Mumford and Sons

Mumford holds a very very very special place in my heart. This album was nothing like how I expected it be, but it gave me Beloved, and that song alone is enough to carry me into the next life.

Critical Equation by Dr. Dog

2018 gave me Dr. Dog. And I am so happy about it. I can’t tell you why they are absolutely my favorite band, but what I can tell you is that I love their music. A lot.

Jubilee Road by Tom Odell

Nothing will ever beat his first album, but it still remains true that I am a sucker for a piano ballad. Good thing Tom Odell will always be the king of them. I plan to dance with him in heaven.

Gregory Alan Isakov with the Colorado Symphony

If music were a religion, this album would be the messiah. That’s all I can say about this one.

As promised, here are the ten albums that I loved this month. Enjoy.

Music this year was great. I know this next year will be even greater. Don’t forget to follow me on Spotify to find fountains and fountains of good music (at least by my standards). If you want to hear even more of what I listen to, you can read my previous music post, Music in November.

Can’t wait to write so much this coming year that my hand cramps and cramps and cramps. See you soon.

Love, Valerie x
