Sometimes it’s fortunate when you’re on a long drive home from work in bad traffic that iTouch shuffle actually cooperates and sends some good tunes your way. Here’s my hour long drive home today (an iTouch on the retro side 😉 ):
Heatwave “The Groove Line (Dance mix)” (1978)
Patrick Wolf “The Magic Position” (2008)
Desmond Dekker & The Aces “Israelites” (1969)
Johnny Hates Jazz “Shattered Dreams” (1988)
Dire Straits “Expresso Love” (1980)
Eurythmics “Who’s That Girl” (1984)
Janet Jackson “Weekend” (I think this was a free download a few years back)
Naomi Striemer “Let Me Go” (2005)
Alphaville “The Mysteries Of Love” (1986)
Marmalade “Reflections Of My Life” (1970)
Share your own shuffles and playlists if you wish 🙂
Let’s see – a few amazing dance anthems/comebacks (“It’s All True”, “Stamp Your Feet”, “Night Of My Life”), a solo debut (“Like I Love You”), two songs that re-entered my chart (“Last Train Home”, “You Want Me Don’t You” – the latter as a remix), doubles from Rufus Wainwright, Coldplay, Kanye West, and Marianas Trench, plus wondrous stuff from Tyler Hilton, iio, Darin, Blue Man Group, Mans Zelmerlow, Gary Go, Jamiroquai, Josh Kelley, and more!

Yes it’s that time once in every ten years when I get to recap the list of my favourite songs of the decade. Of course this list is likely to change even as early as next year, but it’s a snapshot of all that I thought was worthwhile in the decade. In some ways it corresponds to my bi-weekly chart, but there have been some past favourites that I no longer play or hear as much as in the past, and those songs are not on this list. This list is not exclusive to singles or songs on the radio… there are many album tracks.
I will eventually post the full list in the sidebar to the right, but for now you’ll have to watch the blog each day this week for the first 200 songs. The Top 100 will be revealed sometime during the week of December 28.
You can view the first 50 songs right here and of course by the tags you can see some of the artists who are on the list.
Enjoy, and post some comments about your favourite songs on the list!!
