Hey listeners!
It’s so good to be back in misty and picturesque Oakland again! Now that I’m here again I’m starting to think about the holidays (I know, only 400 shopping days ’til xmas…).
Since I hear so much music during the year, I like to put together a holiday compilation for my friends: weird stuff, the unusual, and the songs that really grabbed me during the last year.
I have a pretty good idea of what I’ll be putting on this year’s comp to tell the story of my past year. I’m wondering how you listeners would tell the story of your year in songs.
Anyone care to share the songs that hit you in the past year? The songs that maybe resurfaced after years of dormancy in your life? Your 2007 mixtape? I would love to hear….
cheers,
mz

    Hey, so, I have an idea: On the site, there's generally terminology when I ask, "Why is this song playing?", such as "punk influences", or "minor key tonality". What about making a checklist thing that let's the user click what they want to be included in their station? Also, any way to get moods into the selection process? Sometimes I'm looking for intense music, others I'm looking for laid back or whatever. It'd be good to be able to find a way to add... Dare I say, emotions? To the process. :] THANK YOUS.

Song - Voulez Vous Dancez - Ricci e Poveri (again blogmusik) And I do miss a good station for Italian music of mid-80s (San Remo etc.) .
