Just as I started putting together this post, I realized this month's playlist has a very obvious theme. Not at all planned, but I think it's what was strategically pushed/suggested via television, radio, iTunes etc... February is the first month where a lot of the songs were heard randomly and I made actual notes to search for them and even recorded snippets. The first was in a performance by Alessia Cara, 'River of Tears', in Saturday Night Live. I knew there was that one song of hers on the radio but didn't really care for it. As I listened to the last half of her second performance, I knew I needed to replay that a couple of times! It's the total opposite of what gets pushed this month and I loved it even more for that.  Emo songs is where the feels are at!  I'll be the first to admit that I'm quite stubborn about my music choices. I hardly listen outside the box, I like what I like and that's that! Few songs have surprised me and I've explored more within those genre but always return to my comfort spot. In 2015, I previewed the songs on the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' soundtrack and was surprised at how great it was! I pre-ordered immediately and pretended the movie didn't exist. This month, the sequel to the movie and soundtrack were released. Once more I previewed, loved and pre-ordered. So much I actually include two of the songs in this playlist. This months cover is  'The Scientist' by Corinne Bailey Rae. I have a couple of her other albums so when I saw her name on the list, I knew it'd be great!  I've mentioned before that Ed Sheehan can sing me his grocery list and I'd fall in love with it. This is no grocery list but he has an album releasing later this year and a few of the songs have been released. Of course, I included my favorite (so far). I hope your ears enjoy.
