2k18-19

December 30th, 2018

FINALLY I've gotten around to posting this.  Yes, I know it's down to the wire but it's not 2019 yet so I'm still in the clear.  Now I know the other DJs posted their favorite albums of 2018.  As for me, I'm doing my year wrap up a little differently.  Since I have been able to drive, every year I make a playlist to end the year with and start the next one with.  There is something about starting a new year off with music you love and want rock out to that makes the new year feel good right off the bat.  Are all of these songs from 2018?  Nope.  Still that doesn't mean we can't end 2018 with a genre crossing, decade mashing, hodge podge mix of a playlist.  Which is exactly what you will find below!  I'll be spending New Years Eve in Youngstown (God bless, go Guins) so I have a good three hour drive there and then another three hours back.  Therefore the playlist is 3 hours and 12 minutes long with 50 songs making it up.  I hope you rock out to this as hard as I will be as I drive up 71 North and beyond!  [Also I accept your judgemental side eye for some of these songs and I have no shame about it.]
