You’ve unwrapped all the presents, thrown away all the ripped paper, tried on the new clothes, played with the kids’ new toys, started in on the College Football Bowl Season, had one too many sugary treats, and now need something to bide the time until 2014. You’re welcome…
Throughout the year I plop songs I like into this playlist [NB: all playlists are in alphabetical or chronological order and may contain songs with lyrics that are offensive to sensitive ears.]:
I’ll star my favorite songs among the few hundred I’ve plopped into the above playlist. Then toward the end of the year I’ll fill out a playlist of these starred songs to create a nice round Top ### songs for year ####. This year I filled it out to the Top 100 Songs of 2013. I tried to avoid more than one song by any one artist or group, but there were some I just couldn’t keep off the list.
If there is an album that I find myself returning to frequently, it goes into my Top Albums of the Year list. I’ve filled this playlist out to a Top 25 Albums of 2013.
