Make a random song jukebox (using Google AIY Voice Kit)

Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of the Google AIY Voice Kits for the Raspberry Pi 3. With the kit and some walk-through coding, the kit is a developer example of accessing the Google Assistant and turning a Raspberry Pi into a makeshift Google Home. The project was cool, but I already had a Google Home, so I decided to mess around with the hardware instead.

Eventually, I decided to turn the device into a small, offline jukebox as a gift for my mom, who is a big fan of 80s music. When you hit the button on the top, a random 80s song starts playing. A knob on the side allows for volume adjustment. (Unfortunately, once the song starts playing, it can't easily be stopped. The volume knob can also click in like a button, which I intended to use to stop the music by stopping the music script and immediately restarting it. However, when I was messing with the knob, the button got jammed in, and so I abandoned that idea. Instead, the user can just turn the volume down to zero.)
