I haven't done a playlist for a while now. I did have a contest winner a few weeks ago who hasn't sent me anything yet. I'm not going to say any names but you can check out her great blog here.
I was going to make a list of great songs from 1988. That's the year I left the Center of the Universe to begin my academic career at the greatest institution of higher learning west of the Mississippi. I began to peruse top 100 lists from that year and quickly realized one thing, 1988 sucked for music. I try for a minimum of 12 songs but my target number is 14. I had looked at the top 50 and had written three down. THREE!! And one of those was a U2 song so you know how desperate I was.
I quickly let the creative juices start flowing, as much of them as you need when you have the world wide interweb at your disposal and went "hmmm, how about songs with the word 'night' in the title" and whalah today's playlist was born. Actually a pretty good compilation if I don't mind saying so myself. You'll notice that there are no Eagles songs on this list yet again. Was that intentional I wonder? Bob Seger and the BeeGees are both on here twice, yet the Eagles don't make the list. It would appear that there is some sort of conspiracy to keep them from being heard. Some mischief may be afoot to deny the Eagles some playing time.
Its pretty simple really. If you want to hear the Eagles, tune into any FM station that plays music from 1988 and earlier and you will enough to make you puke. As far as my playlists are concerned, well the only way they will get air time is if a certain contest winner puts them on there and at the rate that's going, that won't happen.
Anyway, enjoy this and I'll try not to wait so long til the next one.
