For the record

31 Jan

I have been meaning to do this post since the beginning of the year. It is a rebuttal to my 2008 music in review post.

I had quite a few comments that the songs were so pop oriented. Despite the frikken disclaimer at the top. People either commented on the post or to me directly that they didn’t think I liked music like that (i.e. they thought I had better taste in music). Although one of my new resolutions is not to try and explain myself so often. I thought I would do a quick rebuttal post.

To explain… those songs in that post are all singles that strike my fancy at some point during the year. They could be a favourite for a day or the whole year. But at some point, I liked them enough to add them to my itunes. For the real analysis of my music library, it would be best to look at whole albums added, as I only get the album when I REALLY like the artist.

Closer – The Best of Sarah McLachlan
Josh Groban – A Collection
John Mayer – Continuum (LOVE this album)
Daughtry (yes, I am an Idol nut)
David Cook – David Cook (see above)
One Republic – Dreaming Out Loud
Snow Patrol – A Hundred Million Suns
James Morrion – Songs for you, Truths for me
Mamma Mia Soundtrack (of course)
Twilight Soundtrack (LOVE this one)
A Fine Frenzy – One Cell in the Sea
Keane – Perfect Symmetry
The Script
Jack Johnson – Sleep through the static
Daniel Powter – Under the Radar
Coldplay – Viva la Vida
Jason Mraz – We sing. We dance. We steal things.
John Mayer – Where the light it
The Killers – Day & Age

Goldfish – Perceptions of Pacha (SA music ROCKS!!)
Prime Circle (ditto above)
Parlotones (ditto above)
Seether (ditto above)

A very different perspective, no? (And there are many more I would love to add).

Anyway. That’s all I have to say. Except to say that I am LOVING (love, love, love) James Morrison at the moment. Broken Strings. Say no more. Listen to it, you’ll know why.

Also, did you know that Johnny Clegg has a son. Jesse Clegg. And he sings too… Lordy, I love his song “Today”. Take a Look:
