Song-a-day Music Journal

Welcome to the song-a-day project! Each day I add a meaningful song to the playlist. It could be: a song I listened to during the day, a song from a new band I “discovered” that day, a song to represent something that i did (like going to a concert), or a song that was meaningful for other reasons (like my mom’s favorite song; she passed away in 2022.) Think of it as a musical journal.

What I like best about this is listening to this playlist on long car trips – the memories come flooding back when each song plays. It’s pretty awesome. And it 100% fits with the spirit of Crucial Tracks. 

I highly recommend taking this project on – we’ve heard from a number of readers who have and gotten the same amount of joy out of the project, as I do. If you end up taking on the project, send us a link so we can follow along! 

Anyway, here’s my current song-a-day playlist for 2024:
