Mixtape: My 2009


Dez 30 2009, 3h12

Perhaps you noticed I've been out of the mixtape game for the past several months. Honestly, it was getting to be more of a chore than a fun diversion, so I decided to take a break--which has made me extra ready to compile my second annual year-end mixtape! For those of you who weren't around last year, I keep a smart playlist on iTunes that tracks what music I've added to my library over the past year and how much I've played it. At the end of the year, I compile a playlist of new-to-me songs that have made their mark on me over the past twelve months. The song of 2009 was, for me, Ryan Adams and the Cardinals' "Cold Roses." I first heard it while "cramming" for his show at the War Memorial Auditorium on March 15, and it was a standout for me from the opening chord progression. Hearing it live really cemented this as one of my all-time favorite songs--I'm still obsessed with it nine months later.

Without further ado, "Cold Roses" and 17 other tracks that meant something to me this year. (No cover art 'cause I didn't feel like it.)
