So, a topic for a Friday.
I need playlist suggestions. I've got roughly 6400 songs on my iPod, and that's just too damn many to go completely at random.
So far, I've put together
But where else do I go? I suppose "City That Never Sleeps" is an obvious option (though there have been fewer really good NYC bands than you might think). Something UK-only would cut almost as large a swath as a US-only list, so that's out, and most other countries aren't represented well enough to merit inclusion. So, where do I go from here? (And before you ask, loosestrudel, I've rated a total of four songs, so doing something rating-specifc would be moot.) Suggestions gratefully accepted.
- One for each year, 1991-2005 (plus one entitled "The Dark Ages" that covers the beginning of time to 1990)
- Some locationally specific ones ("Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! Oi! Oi! Oi!"1, "Swedes on Parade", and "My Kind of Town")
- And, just added this morning, one of Christmas music.
1This list consists of one song by The Triangles, two by AC/DC, five by Midnight Oil, and 102 by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Some names for other good Australian bands would also be appreciated.
maybe songs that became popular (or found renewed popularity) through film? that's fairly specific, and for some reason, i see you as a film enthusiast.
Ang, "enthusisast" doesn't even begin to cover it. I trust JHR's movie review over any other critic out there. The news industry doesn't know the talent they're missing.
And, that is a great suggestion for a playlist!

Agreed. There should be a website detailing his movie reviews - I would also trust his recommendations any day.
