Every year, as I play around with my “word,” I start a little . . . side project. I collect songs that resonate or remind me of my word. And then I turn them into a “word playlist” for myself. Usually I end up with a nice – but short –  little playlist.

This year? Not so much!

This year, my SHIFT playlist just kept growing and growing. It includes what I think of as my “shift songs” . . . but it also includes a whole bunch of songs that reflect my mood(s) over the course of the year. And this year? BIG moods.

So I decided to share my SHIFT playlist with you. Y’know, in case you want 6 hours and 25 minutes of the songs that define my . . . 2022.
