    Listen: 30-Day Song Challenge (+1), The Playlist

    On the first day of the month, we kicked off a 30-Day Song Challenge (plus one, for the extra day in May), to help us keep track of the days while we stayed home, and it looked as if we would need the help to keep one day from blurring into the next. Now, as the month ends, the days proved memorable in ways we hadn't imagined at the start. For those who joined us along the way on Instagram and Twitter and offered your own selections (including none other than Kronos Quartet), thank you. Hope you enjoyed.

    Here are all 31 songs collected in one playlist, and below it a reminder of the daily categories, in case you'd like to pick up the challenge from here.

    Spike Lee's film of David Byrne's American Utopia on Broadway, now streaming on HBO Max, is the subject of today's NPR Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast, which you can hear here. “Spoiler alert: we all love this thing," says Glen Weldon. "This thing is a balm for my withered soul. I think it's the balm for humanity's soul." Soraya Nadia McDonald concurs: "Part of what Spike gets at really well is just the joy that is so absolutely present in this show and that makes it so addictive. Certainly that was the thing after I saw it, I kept listening to the Broadway cast recording on repeat afterward."
