Playlists can be great tools for helping to maintain your focus when you have to spend a long time working out a mystery. Sometimes they can even inspire us and help us to keep going by reminding us why this work matters so much to us.

This blogger recently shared her playlist, comprised of songs that all have to do with family. I have a similar playlist of my own, and I thought I'd share some of it here.
