The Phenomenal Woman Playlist Revealed!

It’s time to announce the annual winners of the 2017 copies of the Phenomenal Woman and Cafe Mix playlists!

Every year I make two mix cds as gifts for my mom and sis, and I count on you to help me find the best songs out there to include!

Thank you to all who gave suggestions, sharing their favorite artists and songs to jam out to. I love researching this project because it’s basically me dancing around and surfing the internet, watching a lot of music videos.

  1. Oh, I always look forward to these lists. And dagnabbit, wouldn’t you know that I’m in the library working…without my headphones here! I’ll listen when I get home. But thanks for sharing the songs. I always find some gems!

    1. Thanks for being a long time listener and song suggester, Julie! I love the mix of tunes I found this year. One of my favorite compilations!

  2. Oh, yay! I’ve been hoping to win for years. Thank you, Jess. And I see I have a lot of new music to discover myself!

    1. I used some of your suggestions on this one and downloaded a couple more just for my own collection!

      Must be destiny! You and Tara have a moving trip ahead of you, so you’ll need good tunes power through unpacking and then chill songs to relax in your new home! DM me what address you want me to send them to and I’ll get them out this week! Congrats!!!

  3. Oh!! I thought you weren’t doing this this year as I missed the initial post. I always discover a bunch of new tunes through this each year. Love your compilations! And I love the nostalgic 80s mix tape aspect of the whole thing. 😉

    1. Well, you have a birthday coming up! 😉

      And yes, throwbacks’s to the 80s!!
