Last August, after sitting on it for a few weeks, I finally set up my account for a new crazy service called Spotify. For those of you not in the know, Spotify is a music-streaming service where you can find, with the exception of the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and a few others, basically any band or artist you can think of. Spending hours exploring the new and revisiting the old, my life hasn’t been the same since. During one particularly lengthy session, I started thinking about what I love most about music. Sure, I love a great beat or melody, an amazing guitar solo, or clever lyrics but it’s more than that. For me, I love how a song has the ability to bring you back in time to some other moment. Essentially, music is a flux capacitor. And that’s how I started the DeLucianal Chronological Playlist, a collection of songs spanning from the year I was born (1979) up to the present. The only criteria? It has to spark a memory. Before hitting 1985, I already had an insane collection of songs (and memories). On this site, I plan on writing about each song and whatever thoughts they trigger. I encourage you to come check back often for indeed, it will be a long, strange trip. Or, at the very least it will demonstrate my need for a hobby.
