shameless linkage

I tweeted something the other day that was along the lines of “I sometimes think the sole purpose of the internet is for guys to give me musical suggestions.”

I’ve gotten some great ones recently. And I would be remiss if I didn’t direct my readers to the guy who’s given me the most new recommendations in the past year—Drew from The Listomania.

He’s been (perhaps too slowly for my tastes, sometimes) putting up a list of the top 100 songs of the first decade of the 21st century. Some amazing stuff I’d never heard of—check it out! And hat tip to jo(e) for turning me on to him in the first place—I think he’s a friend of one or more of her boys.

    Yes, he’s one of my “extra” kids. He and my daughter have been best friends for years.

    Hey, I was following that blog for awhile! My children were infants in the first decade of the 21st century, so I was sleep deprived: I have no memory of any new music from those years. So, yeah, I was following that blog and at first I hated all the music — I thought it all sounded as if it were recorded inside an airplane factory, the music made from airplane parts — but after awhile I got to like it.

    thanks for the shout out Lando. I promise to quicken the pace as we head into the latter stages of the list. posting today’s song in 3…2…

    Ha, I have been enjoying the Listomania also–reminds me all the boys I used to hang out with in my college days, talking about music for hours and going to see any show that struck our fancy. Sigh.
