Sometimes a day is just raggedy and needs a tune to match it. For music that manages to maintain a cheerful facade amid near chaos, look no further than this ragtime playlist. You’ll find playful tunes from the late 1800s to early 1900s, when Scott Joplin put the genre on the map, as well as some later compositions such as William Bolcom’s delicate “Graceful Ghost Rag.”
