Aly’s 2014 Playlist – Top 100

cd-rom

I have a complete lack of skill in so many things – electrical wiring, starting lawn equipment, reading a map correctly the first time, making small talk in a large crowded party, folding fitted sheets.  But – I am really good at making playlists.  I love music. I love people, and mostly, I love connecting my favorite people to good music.  These are not all 2014 releases, but they represent the artists I played the most. Right click links to open in new tab.:)
