Listened Playlist: Carly Rae Jepsen’s Living Room Dance Party from NPR

NPR shares Carly Rae Jepsen summer playlist. It goes with a previous playlist of 102 summer tracks. I am always interested in what artists listen to and recommend. That is why I have been enjoying the Take5 podcast lately. I also like Spotify’s ability to share playlists. Although there are many things I like about Google Music, the ability to share is missing. I have yet to try YouTube Music. I am not sure if this is available there.
