My Top Songs – 2017

My Top Songs – 2017

Listen to the top 100 songs that I played on Spotify during 2017. They recently sent me an email which highlighted my 2017 music. I guess you could say that I love a wide variety of music from many genres and artists, but especially new age and piano. But I guess you probably already knew that, if you have followed my blog over the past three years.

Priscilla Ahn

Priscilla Ahn

Listen to indie folk-pop music by Priscilla Ahn. Her new album La La La contains whimsical, playful, and loving songs which won a 2016 Family Choice Award for infant to age 5, but it’s good for older humans too.

New Album

Here is her latest album.

La La La (2016) – 12 songs, 30 min


Here is what she had to say about the album on her blog.

It’s been too long. A lot has happened. I had a baby. I’m a crazy, disheveled mom now, with a new album I’d love to share with you. And this one is super special because…. it’s a children’s album! But not your typical “wheels on the bus” children’s album. These are songs I wrote, in my normal, trying-to-be-adult-like, “Priscilla Ahn” style, but with the intention of singing these messages to children. It’s still very much meant for grown ups, but also (hopefully) appeals to kids and babies! I recorded these songs in my used-to-be studio, which is now my son’s nursery. (my office has exploded into a new room that needs major organizing!). I recorded these songs while I was pregnant. Some songs induced more baby kicking than others. When writing and recording the album, I pictured my tiny, soon-to-be son, I pictured children around the world, and I pictured you.

Ivan & Alyosha

Ivan & Alyosha

Here’s some folk-pop music by Ivan & Alyosha from Seattle that you can listen to on Spotify.

The band takes its name from characters in the novel The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky. I saw them perform for a SXSW day party at Home Slice Pizza in Austin several years ago and remember that I liked them, then forgot about them for a while, but recently rediscovered their music again when they released another album.


Here is my playlist of their songs.
