This year’s birthday playlist represents my favourite songs each year, from the year I was born to 2018.

To give the playlist a more diverse genre, each artist is only featured once, because or else I will have six Pet Shop Boys songs and no tracks from The Divine Comedy, for example.

Anyway, the cover design was based on the colours of the EP/single artworks from each track.
