Welcome to a new series on Tunes du Jour called A Hint of Mint. It’s a playlist based on this coming week’s birthdays and recent news stories. The songs will bear a hint of mint. The playlist was created using 8tracks. With Spotify I’m limited to what has been licensed for that service to stream, whereas in 8tracks, I can include anything from my collection that was commercially released. The trade-off is I cannot include more than two songs by any one artist nor can I display the tracklist. It’ll be like a fun radio show where you don’t know what songs are coming up, but you know you’ll enjoy most if not all of them.
