This is a blog. Probably not an interesting one, but the days of interesting blogs are mostly gone. That's now how people communicate anymore. Now it's all Instagram pictures and tweets so meaningful it required typing out a single thought in 4 badly-spelled, poorly-worded parts. So enjoy looking at a bunch of stuff no one should see.
I don't remember what started me thinking... It was a shower thought. (Probably something about the bell curve of the music I still listen to over the course of my life, with the greatest focus still being on the music of the 90s, despite the fact that I hated the 90s and the popular music of the time was fucking awful.)
Anyway, the thinking somehow ended up with me wondering what would happen if I had to narrow down certain years to individual songs. Then, given that bell curve, I wondered if I could even find songs for every year, eventually working my way back to the beginning of my life.
For whatever reason, a couple of weeks ago, I actually sat down, went through my collection - sorted by date - and tried to find something for every single year, which only ended up being difficult (to nigh-impossible) for about 4 or 5 of them. I was surprised how quickly I was actually able to narrow down years where there were a hundred songs I loved into a single track, especially compared to some of the years where there was nothing I particularly cared about.
Here are my results.
