Jenn’s Music

Hey, hey. So while you are sitting, white-knuckled, on the edge of your seat, waiting for my own older playlists, I wanted to share a few playlists made by my friend, Jenn.

I don’t even know how we got on the topic but one day, several years ago now, we were talking about music and found out we are both frequent random playlist creators and collectors. I was about to cook a Thanksgiving turkey and she mentioned she had a playlist a friend of hers had made, specifically for hyping yourself up to cook a big meal. I thought that sounded awesome so I asked her if she wouldn’t mind sharing it with me. She was very obliging and offered to send a bunch of her others as well. Score!

Jenn works in the music industry and has a lot exposure to a wide variety of great music. She also has good taste!

Over the years, she has created more that she has shared with me and has even cultivated a couple upon my request of a specific feel.

I’ve been introduced to many of my favourite songs directly from Jenn. I am very grateful for that gift. 💚  Now I want to pass on some of that to you. I highly recommend perusing these lists, clicking on some of the titles, and finding some new gems for yourself.

They are in the order she gave them to me in, and if there was artwork for the playlist, that is included as well.
