For the Record Playlist no.03: Quality Time

Fitting of the topics my Twitter timeline has been fixated on lately - for whatever reason - this playlist has a very intimate, chill, date night vibe to it. Even with the influence of what social media thinks my love life should look like, I’ve been spending a lot of time alone lately. Whether I’m writing articles and planning content for the site, working on all the projects I have my hands in at the moment or a simple, relaxing Friday night in, I’ve been really enjoying my own company.

I haven’t been in relationship mode much, because I’ve been so focused on other things, but music has this subtle, yet incredible way of expressing or inspiring emotion for any given situation. Ironically enough, maybe unconsciously I do want someone around who can vibe to this playlist with me. I can just imagine being in a room together; while I’m doing my thing, he’s doing his thing, and the only thing noise filling the space is the radio playing softly in the background. That - in my opinion - is one of the most intimate forms of quality time, especially for 2 goal driven individuals who enjoy the mere presence of a person just as much as their own solitude.

So if you are currently in love (with yourself, with someone else, with R&B, with all of the above), add this to your library to have something nice and smooth to vibe to on a night where it’s just one of those nights…
