  • One Song. Each day. Every day. (2011)

    2 Jan 2011, 06:59 by lassaucepan

    The title says it. Every day i'm going to pick a song I think represents that day the best and I'll even give a little explanation why.

    Reasons I may pick a song:

    I listened to it a lot.
    I had it in my head.
    I was blown away by it.
    I discovered it.
    I rediscovered it.
    I heard it somewhere special.
    I listened to the lyrics in a new way.
    I learned something about it.
    I cried to it.
    I saw it performed.
    It's a really fucking good song.

    Saturday, Jan. 1: Animal Collective - Bluish - Packing all my stuff to leave the place where everyone I love is and used to be, and listening to this song as I do so.

    Sunday, Jan. 2: Hockey - Song Away - How ironic would it be if you played this song at 11:59 p.m.? Oh wait...

    Monday, Jan. 3: Athlete - Superhuman Touch - Smooth indie rock, put me to sleep while I try to block out all this incessant noise.

    Tuesday, Jan. 4: Explosions in the Sky - So Long, Lonesome - I'm going to have to agree with those who say song titles don't matter. …

  • 5,000

    6 Dec 2008, 00:41 by turn_forever

    Considering the infrequency with which I use this, and the bizarre cross-section of my music collection that exists in mp3 format, the 5,000 list seems oddly representative.

    Anyway, make sure you're sat comfortably. This might take a while.

    1 Elliott Smith 195 plays
    First song heard
    Let's Get Lost. It was when From a Basement on the Hill was coming out and I think it was on something free. Hilariously, I don't remember thinking very much of it, probably because the only thing I was listening to was Bright Eyes, Bright Eyes, and more Bright Eyes at this point.
    Favourite song
    I Didn't Understand is the most consistent answer to this, because I'm a sentimental old fool.
    Favourite album
    XO. Regardless of whatever Dreamworks were doing to induce such intense paranoia, Elliott was still writing the best material of his life. Which is the horrible irony in the fact that, based on the hallucinations he was having, Dreamworks' business practices almost certainly contributed to his declining health. …

    Boards of Canada

    Nigdy nie podchodziłem do tego zespołu poważnie.. nigdy nie szalałem za żadnych ich kawałkiem, no... 1969 ten zawsze mi sie podobał ..ale głownie ze względu na efekty akustyczne.


    a jednak słuchanie ich sprawia mi duża frajdę.. to idealna muzyka jeśli chcemy żeby coś sobie brzdękało w tle.


    Nie słucham ich nigdy specjalnie ..a jednak maja zadziwiająco ( dla mnie) wysoka pozycje na mojej liście.

  • Song of the day

    23 May 2007, 08:20 by Didohotep

    It's something like a diary of which song you have listened to or liked every single day. A song may be your favourite one for a whole week, or for just a day, corresponding to how you feel or similar. It is also possible that you haven't listened to it on your PC, but had it all day on your mind, having heard it just once (in the morning, for instance) and it stuck in your mind!

    Reprinted from another of my sites, and edited.

    In the spring of 2004, i stumbled onto an idea i think was one of my greatest ideas for a musical mix. It was built on an idea, as most grand ideas are, from something that had been building in my head for some time. I am fairly certain that it revolves around the song by Boards of Canada: 1969. I started thinking about songs named after years. I wondered if there was a song named for every year. It seemed far-fetched when i started. There are a multitude of songs out there granted, but were there enough artists out there impressed with one or any given number of random years to have named their song after it?
    Some seemed obvious: 1999, 1984, 1969. But what about 1962 or 1987. What could be so great about those years that a song is worthy of being named by it. So i started my search. I had stringent rules. Mainly, the song had to have the year in the title (though not necessarily, mentioned in the song, as mostly i am into songs without words anyway). …
