  1. After finding about it on your blog, I’ve also started doing listening this week! I made my playlist in chronological order, but maybe I should have done a mix like you…either way, thanks for the inspiration!

    • I’m glad to hear that I added inspiration to someone. I sorted the 1001 songs to listen to list by alphabetizing the music artist / group by first names. I’ve seen others sort by year or decades, or themes. You can make playslists however you want, even change it up. I did that another year, made playslists based on themes and subjects. Happy listening.
