Favorite Songs: 4th 1/4 of 2018 - #MusicMonday

Made some big decisions and changes in how I acquire and enjoy music. A little less than a year ago, I stopped purchasing CDs all together and instead pay for mp3s of albums and songs I know I definitely want and then buy the occasional vinyl record if it's something to be especially cherished.

Now I've taken the next plunge and am trying out different paid streaming services (vs. the free versions I've had a hate-love relationship with for too many years). My feelings are still mixed on this easy-come, easy-go relationship to music and the companies behind services like Spotify and YouTube Music, which appear to be screwing the creators when it comes to getting paid. But due to concerns about time, space, money and the environment, streaming services and digital purchases make most sense... and the occasional vinyl record for the soul.

I'm curious: do you use streaming services? If so, which one(s) do you use? I'm probably going to decide between Spotify and Amazo…
