NPR Music has published its list of their #1 songs of 2015, and “Pretty Things” has made the list. From NPR Music:
Hidden inside our enormous year-end Songs We Love 2015 app — 401 songs across a dozen genres compiled by NPR Music and our public radio partners — is a playlist of 61 jewels, the ones we loved the best. We polled our entire team —including dozens of hosts from around the country — and these are the songs we singled out.
Gretchen Peters, “Pretty Things”
Peters manages to distill decades of negative thoughts into a single song that gives me goosebumps and makes my eyes well up every time I hear it.
