Just a little preoccupied lately? Yeah, us too. Whether it’s hope, fear, or sheer, raging, out-of-control anxiety—or some combination—as November 3 approaches, this playlist might help you embrace that hope, fear, and sheer, raging, out-of-control anxiety. One small request: by all means, enjoy the exuberant confidence of Track 8, the battered determination of Track 5, and the rest, but, please, do not under any circumstances neglect the imperative of Track 18.
