“It’s hard to narrow down an amazing year in music to just five picks! Sometimes, when I am sleeping, songs will creep into my slumber, and that’s when I know the song means something to me. The songs I picked made their way into my thoughts during the day and night, especially Sharon Van Etten; I have to say “Seventeen” did it for me in so many ways, it makes me wish I wasn’t tone deaf. So here are my five, the songs that crept into my dreams throughout the year.”

Sharon Van Etten, “Seventeen”
