Music, 2005

A few weeks ago, Peter invited me to join one of his projects. He asked ten of his friends to submit their top ten favorite tracks from 2005. Since then it's opened up to include tracks discovered in 2005, but I'm trying to stick to the original plan (which is ironic because I was one of the first people who asked that the requirements be opened up).

Almost immediately, I came up with nine songs. I don't feel that the music released in 2005 was quite as strong as that released in 2004 (which had some great pop tunes) or 2003 (when all the indie-pop electronic albums seem to have come out), so it was faily easy to narrow songs down. Even so there were one or two surprises in the final list. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find that one last song to round out the ten. I was hoping to find an ambient or neo-classical track to finish the compillation. I was also hoping to end with something uplifting. It's too bad that Max Richter's Blue Notebooks came out last year.

Karen suggested I record myself breathing and just leave it at that. I thought that might be creepy, but then thought it might work if I recorded myself sleeping. If only I could find someone to do it. Posted by eku at November 21, 2005 10:22 PM
