Thanks for sharing this! I have never heard most of these songs and would gladly listen to it when I have the time. Exploring different genres and appreciating music as a whole is a great way of living. Who knows in a day or two I might just be chilling in my veranda listening to a playlist with these songs in it. Cheers!
