Favorite songs (part one), 2023

The year is already past 50% progress! Time to take a look at the highest rated 2023 songs in my QuodLibet music library by filtering as follows:

&(#(rating>=0.5), #(year>=2023))

Interestingly, so far in 2023, not one song with 5 stars has joined my library. The highest rating of any 2023 song is 4 stars. But the year is far from over too. 😝️

For 2022 there were four 5 star songs, for 2021 even 16!

Make sure to have a look (and a listen) at/to part two of my favorite songs of 2023 if you haven't yet!
