In honor of Black Friday all songs selected from your suggestions are played exclusively on the black keys of a piano. Just kidding… first of all, I would never honor Black Friday. Second of all, short of “Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater” and the one where you roll your knuckles along the three black keys I can’t think of many songs that are played exclusively on the black keys.

Alright, if you’re still reading… We had over 50(!) submissions for this playlist, which made it particularly difficult to whittle down. Many songs got multiple nods from different folks. Ultimately, I tried to take those suggestions and make a playlist that plays well from front to back. It ranges in emotion, style, era and energy, but it rarely wallops you over the head with a sudden shift. Hope you enjoy it!

Oh and don’t forget to keep rating albums if you want personalized playlists and stats at the end of the year. Deadline is December 11th!
