2006 music

I am debating making comps for the crew this year like I have in years past.
Everyone has an ipod chock full o good tunes...why would anyone want a piece of plastic I've dropped 19 more onto? Maybe I should keep it going...just to have a nice keepsake, as things become more fluid, digital and cold.

The year in music...here is the top 11 I've submitted to AOL. I based this list on bands who put out a new record AND I got to see live. I had to limit it to 11.

Muse
Band of Horses
Islands
Of Montreal
Arctic Monkeys
The Raconteurs
M Ward
Mates of State
The Thermals
Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin
CSS

As far as the CD - I've come up with playlist of 26 songs. I need to pair down as a CD will only hold about 18.



I think Hot Chip and Arctic Monkeys may be over exposed, so I should save room for songs that didn't get at much blog love, like Chin Up Chin Up and Someone Still Loves you Boris Yeltsen.

I also have to keep The Thermals, The French Kicks, Film School, Lilys and the Islands, as these songs rule so hard and I listened to them over and over again ( like a monkey with a minuture symbol).
Mates of State stay too, cause they give me a shout out at the beginning of the song.

If I am to make the comp - I want to know what you think, and what I HAVE to keep.

Thanks.
