‘Songs we’re obsessed with’: Quarantunes edition 22


Since March 2021, The Union’s editorial board began creating and publishing Spotify playlists with each newsletter pertaining to different themes and moods.

The newsletters, comprised of news and other stories relating to El Camino College, are sent to subscribers’ inboxes every two weeks on Thursday mornings.

For the fifth playlist of the fall 2021 newsletter, we decided on the theme of ‘Songs we’re obsessed with’, which is a compilation of songs that The Union staff are currently listening to on loop or artists that we can’t get enough of.
