2009’s 365Songs - 74-146
The second 73 songs of my 365Songs playlist for 2009 go all over the place. From the get-go, we’re genre jumping between folk (Indigo Girls), off-Broadway performance art soundtrack (Blue Man Group), pop (Kelly Clarkson), rap (Eminem), arena rock (U2), and bluegrass (Robert Plant and Alison Krauss). But, somehow, it’s still working (at least for me, the guy who co-hosted a radio program called Complete and Utter Randomness back in college).
In this set, we also get a continuation of the “block party” theme with long sets of Nine Inch Nails, Green Day, songs from the soundtrack to The Transformers: The Movie, and even the somewhat obscure indie pop songstress Poe.
All in all, as we draw ever closer to the halfway point of the list, I’m feeling like the mix does a really good job of reflecting my eclectic tastes. You?
