Playlist of the Week is a 5-10 song playlist of songs that you, the Seattle Academy student, are listening to. Each week a new student’s playlist will be featured. If you’d like to be featured, send me, Alice Flood, an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), and we’ll discuss from there. Playlist of the Week knows no limits as to the genres of music; we want to know what YOU like! I want this feature to help us all discover new music as well as learn what kind of stuff our friends are listening to. This issue features the playlist of Sarah Hughes ’14.
