Some notes:

  1. In general, I picked one slower song and one faster song from each of the 12 mixtapes I made over 2018.

  2. The first 12 songs are slower. They’re more for gentler hanging out/snuggling/lying on the floor staring at the ceiling. The second 12 songs are faster, and I recommend dancing. Start wherever you like.

  3. I put out the January 2019 Mixtape yesterday, which has an entirely different set of songs than this Best of 2018 Mixtapes playlist, which means you have a total of 44 songs to listen to as you figure out what 2019’s about.

  4. I normally have more to say here, but I’m just going to let you listen to this one. Enjoy!
