2020 – Automation

January 2nd, 2021 · Comments Off on 2020 – Automation · Music

It is that time of the year again. The time when I add another track to my Spotify playlist, the one that has one song for every year I have been around. I have now added a 59th track to it, which makes me fell a bit old. While this might have been a bit […]

2019 – Must I Evolve?

January 3rd, 2020 · Comments Off on 2019 – Must I Evolve? · Music

Now we are firmly into 2020 (Happy New Year BTW) it is time to increment my 1962 onwards playlist by another tune. Deciding what to put on there was a tough decision because there was so much good music last year, and I got to listen to a lot more music than I normally would. […]

2018 – Get Your Shirt

July 9th, 2019 · Comments Off on 2018 – Get Your Shirt · Music

As far as music was concerned 2018 was many things: it was even better than 2017, it was a year for female artists and it was a year for comebacks.

2017 – Miami

July 5th, 2019 · Comments Off on 2017 – Miami · Music

When I decided to write about one track from every year of my life I don’t think I realised how bloody old I am – it turned out to be a bit of an epic chore, but the end is in sight now. By that I mean that I am nearly caught up, not that […]

2016 – Hardwired

July 4th, 2019 · Comments Off on 2016 – Hardwired · Music

It continues to pleasantly surprise me how as we get further from the golden age of the 70’s and I continue to get more decrepit, there seems to be more new music I like rather than less. Admittedly, little of what is in the singles charts does much for me, but long-established artists continued to […]

2015 – Uptown Funk

July 2nd, 2019 · Comments Off on 2015 – Uptown Funk · Music

When I first decided to put together a playlist with one track from each year I have been around I expected that I would agonise over what to include in the years of the late 70’s, 80’s and 90’s and struggle to find anything new in the 21st Century, having lost touch a bit with […]

2014 – Little Monster

July 1st, 2019 · Comments Off on 2014 – Little Monster · Music

Another year where I enjoyed the new music. Admitttedly most of the new music I was listening to and enjoying was from artists that had been going for quite a while, or even a long while.

2013 – Mystery Man

June 13th, 2019 · Comments Off on 2013 – Mystery Man · Music

At some point in the 2000’s I just stopped buying CDs. This is a big deal for me, having over-spent on music for as long as I can remember. The thing is, all my existing CDs are only played through the computer, having been ripped ages ago. New music I just stream. I pay the […]

2012 – Spitfire

June 8th, 2019 · Comments Off on 2012 – Spitfire · Music

This was the year I turned 50, when I might have been expected to retreat into listening to back catalogue and leave new music to the youngsters. I would have been happy to do that, but instead there was some excellent new music coming out that was right up my street, although a lot of […]

2011 – Let England Shake

June 7th, 2019 · Comments Off on 2011 – Let England Shake · Music

While the singles charts continued to be full of songs by “x featuring y”, where x=someone I haven’t heard of and y=someone I have vaguely heard of, there were some interesting albums this year. It was especially good for albums by the sons of other musicians, with albums by Ian Dury’s son Baxter, Neil Finn’s […]
