Here on the Jet Fuel Jukebox, we’re ringing in the New Year with lists! Below you can explore an expansive record of our favorite songs of the year, before coming back tomorrow to read all about our respective Top 10 Albums of 2017, which Jake and I have absolutely pored over.
And while the albums list will be exactly what you expect if you’ve read our previous entries, we’ve actually done things a bit differently for the songs list this year. In year’s past, Jake and I would simply choose our own 25 favorite songs and slap them together into one fine playlist with no rhyme or reason as to where the tracks landed. It worked, but missing from it was a cohesion of both our musical tastes.
Jake is currently a sophomore at Lewis University, majoring in Public Relations. One day, he hopes to serve under one of his many favorite musicians as a PR representative. In the meantime, he’s content with serving tables at his waiting job. Lover of all things music related, Jake is the new music blogger for the Jet Fuel Review blog, and you will rarely be able to catch him without headphones in. If you do happen to, he’s likely hanging out with his friends, avoiding his homework, or re-watching “Parks and Recreation” for the umpteenth time.
Here is our Q&A with Jake:
Who are you and what is your role in the Jet Fuel Review?
My name’s Jake Johnson and I’m a sophomore here at Lewis. I’m currently writing music reviews for the Jet Fuel Review blog.
What book might we find on your nightstand right now?
If I’m being honest, likely one of my textbooks. I don’t really actively read during the school year as much as I’d like to.
