Asking Seniors to Shuffle their Music Libraries


Mary Archambault – “16” by Baby Keem

We’ve all been there. You’re in the car with your friends, you plug your phone into the aux cord (yes, my car still has an aux cord), shuffle your music, and boom: Big Time Rush starts blasting through your speakers. Somehow, the songs that you meant to delete, guilty pleasure songs, and music from that phase in middle school always shuffle on. For my article this week, I wanted to test my theory that the shuffle button exists to choose embarrassing songs. So, I asked seniors to shuffle their music libraries and let chance decide.
