(no subject)

So back before my birthday, when I was merely sneaking up on decrepitude instead of experiencing it second by agonizing second as I am now, I had an idea.

Using my vast accumulated repository of recorded sounds, I selected one song from each year I have been alive. The rules:
  • No covers.
  • Limit one song per artist.
  • All songs are to be selected sincerely, with neither irony or sarcasm intended.
This resulted in 2 CDs worth of material, which I distributed to selected friends and cognoscenti.

Having disseminated the last of the copies last night, I figured it was time to let you, the public, into my world. What follows are the track listings for the CDs, along with selected commentary on each song.

So that's that. Any thoughts? Questions?

If you were pulling together one of these for yourself, what would it look like?
