So I was updating my phone there other day, and I noticed you can sort the songs on your phone on iTunes by how many listens, thereby showing which song you listened to the most. Interestingly enough, the song I listened to the most was “Hold Me Down” by Halsey.
I was rather surprised by this because I wouldn’t say this is my “favorite” song – I mean, it would be on a list of songs I really like, but it wouldn’t be my all time favorite. I will say, though, the song has one of my favorite lyrics: “throw me in the deep end and watch me drown.” There’s something about that line that I find rather powerful.
I encourage you to sort your music on iTunes and see your listening patterns/habits. It’s rather interesting, it kind of tells you what mood you’re in. When I first started #PhillipsSongOfTheDay – something that has sort of died out (I’ve gotten busier) – I would choose one song a day, and keep a record of it on my phone (then on this blog). Looking through the list was interesting because I could see my emotional journey or, less cringe-worthy, how my emotions fluctuated over the months.
