I can't believe the decade is coming to a close. 2010 seemed intangible and now it's just around the corner. It's hard to believe it's been ten years since college and the like. Those days of youthful do whateve are long gone, and while a lot has changed since then, a lot hasn't. (fact: randall and i have nearly been together for ten years, how's that for blowing your mind?)
As I wondered about what had changed, I started to think about my tastes. Movies and TV are pretty much the same, although these days I don't watch many movies and I like my TV a little quirky indie-fied (whereas back then it was not much TV and movies were quirky indie-fied). And my music is sort of the same too. And unlike movies and TV where I refuse to watch anything more than once (even if I can't remember what the hell it's about), I will listen to songs over and over and over again. Some might even call it obsessive. So in an effort to figure out what I've been obsessing over the last ten years, I decided to join in on this decade-end wackiness and compile a list of my top 50 songs from the aughts.
This has been ridiculously difficult.
As I mentioned, I get a little compulsive, and i really love music, so I think it might end up more like 100. I mean, some of these have not held up over the years at all, but they're the ones I loved at the time. It would be lying to myself not to include them. Even if that means admitting to you all that Nelly Furtado's Promiscuous was once my summer jam.
So where's the list? Ladies and gentlemen, patience. Lists like these don't create themselves in an evening. I'll post it as soon as I'm positive I haven't forgotten something.
