I make lists. The lists I make are not useful in any way. They are not “to do” lists or other proper lists. Growing up I used to keep track of the songs I liked, a personal top 10 chart of sorts. I would keep the lists in a book, and at the end of the year I’d have my favorite songs of the year. One day I decided that I would make a mix tape of the previous year’s songs. That morphed into burning CDs, and now I make playlists on iTunes.
I’ve just completed my 2011list. Instead of sharing my top 100, which would be pretty ridiculous, here is my top 5.
Half Of Something Else – The Airborne Toxic Event
Underneath the Sycamore – Death Cab for Cutie
Stay – Diego Garcia
Cassette Tape – Katie Costello
Eyes – Peter Bjorn and John
The older I get, the mellower I get, I think.
