Because every single playlist I've created chronicled a somewhat important moment in my life and every song I chose to go into a playlist was there for a reason. So I regret every playlist I've ever deleted because I thought I didn't need it anymore. I want to know the context in which I listened to that Andy Grammer song I remembered yesterday. But I can't. Because that playlist doesn't exist anymore. Why did I remember that Andy Grammer song after so many years? Because I felt an emotion that I felt some years ago when I first added it to a playlist that now no longer exists. Why was Tracy Chapman's Fast Car the first song on a playlist I once made and what made me choose the songs that followed? Why was José González's Heartbeats so important to me and why do I know every single word of Dj Sbu and Zahara's Lengoma even though it's in Xhosa? Why did I listen to Mi Casa's These Streets almost every morning on my way to classes in 2012/2013 and why did it make me so happy?
I don't know the answers to these questions because I no longer have evidence of the context in which I listened to them. I don't even know the point of this rant. Perhaps I just rediscovered my love for listening to music and I realized how much it means to me. Or I just overthink silly things like why I really liked certain songs.
