My Year in Song

In which I do just what I did last year

Songs either that I listened to a lot or that represented my state of mind that month. Spotify can do its best, but to wrap me up? Can’t be done.

January: “De Noite na Cama,” Erasmo Carlos

February: “Cruel Sexuality,” La Roux

March: “I Know There’s An Answer,” The Beach Boys

April: “So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings,” Caroline Polachek

May: “Never Let You Go,” Third Eye Blind

June: “From a Buick 6,” Bob Dylan

July: “Cherry Wine,” Hozier

August: “Hair Body Face,” Lady Gaga

September: “I Think We’re Alone Now,” The Rubinoos

October: “You Oughta Know,” Alanis Morissette

November: “High Horse,” Kacey Musgraves

December: “Águas de Março,” Elis Regina & Antônio Carlos Jobim

Album of My Year: (do I really need to say it?) Pet Sounds
