Best Of 2018: Albums & Songs, Stevie

Two things influenced my music listening habits in 2018; two purchases I made. The first, a Google Home smart speaker. When Spotify unveiled my top 100 tracks of the year, it was readily apparent the havoc my Google Home has wreaked. When I thought I was punking my roommates with ridiculous songs, I was actually punking myself as “Cotton Eyed Joe”, “Hot Cheetos & Takis”, “Cheeseburger In Paradise”, and “Come Clean” (you remember the Laguna Beach theme song, don’t you?) infiltrated my playlist. The second, my hammock. I’m a hammock guy now. I spent countless hours lounging in my backyard with nothing but my Spotify and my dog to worry about. Cool spring mornings, hot summer nights, warm fall afternoons; here’s what provided the soundtrack for those moments.
