One of the most difficult things our Music Design team does each year is narrow down all the songs they listened to and loved into a small list of their favorites. In order to make our global programming as comprehensive as possible, each of our Music Designers has an area of expertise. Though the team’s musical preferences tend to span a multitude of genres, we think each Music Designer’s list may give you an idea of their specialty.

Because their tastes are so varied, very few songs appeared on multiple lists. However, one artist appeared several times…and likely topped your “Best of 2019” list as well. Of course we’re talking about Lizzo!

Have a listen to the other songs that were loved by several members of our Music Design team:
