HULLABALOO // Year In Haiku 2017 (Pt. 1)

this is a list of songs that i love that were released between the months of january and december of 2017. it is not meant to be interpreted as A List Of The Best Songs. it is simply a reflection on the music that helped me connect with the world, others, and myself. which seemed like something worth making a list about.

i also wrote a haiku about each one.
