This is a great list as always - I love the care and thought you put into your lists.

If anyone wonders, I make this list from a set of iPod playlists I do throughout the year. For instance, I'll have one called 2010 JAN and it will have anything I like from that month. I add stuff as it comes out, so each month may have between 40 and 60 songs. The problem with this is that I tend to play THOSE songs and miss some other stuff.

love your taste & selections. you've become a mainstay for my music hounding thru the net. also appreciate the tip; much easier than trying to review at years end for those great tracks. inevitably something always seems to slip through, so perhaps best just to realize it's always a point in time view of what you're into. thanks!

This is more like it! Your list covers quite a number of my favourites (how could I have forgotten 'Tale To Tell' by The Mummers!?). I guess you and I would never be bored with a stereo and a large stack of CDs on a desert island!!

I keep music folders on my p.c. for the new downloads for each month of that particular year; I find that easy to refer to (when I am making compilations, etc).

Even with all those Little Boots ditties, I'm sure Victoria still hates your guts! LOL

My highlight from MJB's new album would have to be 'Colours' or as the Americans spell it: 'Colors'... having said that, the tracks you listed here are growing on me.

xolondon said...

@zen sad to hear The Mummers songwriter died this fall.

@Yuri. I doubt she gives a shit really. She's got her head up her ass.

@feedlimmy - I need to see Precious so that song will stick more with me.

Stephen, a late christmas song for you, from a cheesy swedish christmas show. You might like it. Best wishes for 2010! /Karin
