Jazzy Playlists for Every Type of Weather

Jazzy weather playlists!

    Here is a compilation of all the jazzy songs I listen to, according to the weather. My mood highly depends on the weather and season and I really like having a type of themed playlist to go along with how I’m feeling! I’ll listen to these by myself on the bus or on the train, in my room, or while doing homework because I find them inspirational and just fun songs to listen to!
