Lest auld aquaintance songs be forgot

Shoey has put his hand (foot?) up to co-ordinate the year-end Spill song list again, so he can tell us what we are supposed to do and when. I presume we'll email him songs again and he'll Spill 'em (Shoey, I'll make a separate dBox for you).

But let us know Shoeperson and we'll do what we're told, carping behind your back every step of the way of course.



Oh and I found a list of 2009 album releases to refresh memories. I'm sure there's other albums and songs which haven't troubled the mainstream lists, but it's a starting point. Click on the bagel to get the list.

I've had another retro year of buying mainly 50's, 60's and 70's jazz reissues, so it's going to be a bit tricky finding new releases again.. it would be perhaps be good to do a split of best songs released in 2009/best songs you discovered in 2009, though I suppose if we want a best of the noughties as well it might all get a bit much.

I'm going to REALLY struggle with a Top Ten albums list this year ... I haven't bought that many!

Seriously, a combination of recession hatch-battening, The 'Spill, Spotify and DropBox mean I've heard shedloads of new SONGS in 2009, but I reckon I've only bought 8 albums all year, and two of those aren't 2009 releases.

I haven't bought any either, listened to a few here and there but none prompted me to want to rush to the store. Perhaps we could have a category for the likes of me, Nilp and DsD, something other than 'new albums in 09'?
Alltime favorites, albums that should have been produced but never were, Ideal compilations etc.

How about if we include books read and recommended, that's a lot easier. Or websites discovered. Or best piece of software.

We don't have to limit it to albums released in 09, but maybe to albums first heard or discovered in 09.

I think it was songs not albums

ejay said...

True:
-albums
+songs
