IF CHATTERKICK WERE A PLAYLIST
This playlist represents the humans, moments, and memories behind the most important part of Chatterkick, the people. Picking 1-6 tracks as the soundtrack to your life is not an easy task but, as they do every day, each team member tapped into their human connections in the digital (music) world. As you listen to the playlist, remember that someone important here was moved by this record. It has deep meaning and memorializes something for them, even if that something is that it’s a really good song to shake your booty to. Listen with an open heart and know that sharing these tracks is a personal experience and opportunity to connect with the incredible curators.
These songs may be numbered, but don’t get it twisted, we could NEVER rank music, artists, or genres. We love them all for so many different meanings. We asked each team member to provide 1-6 songs that they can't live without and tell us what their tracklist says about them. Here's the Chatterkick collective sound. Gotta be honest, this playlist is best served in pure shuffle mode but follow your heart.
I’m drawn to the way artists use words to communicate and commemorate emotions. These songs made me feel things and hit my bones when I need them.
