One thing can be said with absolute certainty: this year has put us all through the wringer.
From the lowest of lows to the (hopefully in there somewhere) happiest of happy moments, 2020 has been moody. And this collection of playlists is here for every mood. Feeling angry at the world? Feeling like you’re on cloud nine? Feeling like you just want to snuggle up and forget your worries? We’ve got a playlist for that.
So let’s start our year-in-review of playlists with the way this year started. It’s New Years Day, you’ve welcomed in the new decade, you’re feeling great. On top of the world.

Autumn came as an exhale, and here’s the playlist that reflects it:
So there you have it. A year in review through the songs we needed. 2020 is coming to an end, but these moods will live on. Come back for a listen whenever you need a reminder that you’re not alone in your caregiving journey. Music will see us through.
