Songs on Repeat

Spotify’s On Repeat playlist is pretty nifty, isn’t it?

On Repeat has become my go-to playlist recently and it’s been dope. It has all the songs that I love listening to over and over again, and it saves me time from having to decide which albums to play. I press On Repeat and voila — the songs are surefire bops.

My iTunes has long been clogged with songs that I downloaded but never really listened to. I only acquired most of them because friends and other cool peeps had vouched for their awesomeness. But apparently (unfortunately?), I ain’t cool enough to appreciate them. I just deleted most of Anberlin’s albums, most of Blur and all of Deftones.
