DECEMBER 1ST = THE TOP 10 MANIA BEGINS!

This blog has cemented itself into focusing primarily on movies & movie related stuff for quite some time. But another obsession of mine is music and, of course, since 1994 I've made my annual Top 10 list of albums and/or singles.

Me and my pals Mandy and Victor have kept this tradition going and usually reveal our lists to each other on a designated day in December. This year that day is Monday December 15th, and I thought it would be fun to ask others to get involved as well.

So... that means regulars, first time visitors, or anybody related to either of the two are invited to submit a Top 10 Music of 2008 to this blog on Monday December 15th.


RULES:

There are no rules. You can list your 10 Favorite albums, 10 Favorite singles, 10 Favorite album covers, 10 Favorite videos... whatever, as long as you try and stay within the confines of 2008. Then simply e-mail your list to me before, on, or around the 15th and I will post it on TRACTOR FACTS with a link to your site.

If enough people participate, I'd like to tally-up a cumulative TRACTOR FACTS Top 10 Albums for 2008. For instance, I'll weigh rankings given to particular albums, and give extra points to albums with multiple mentions.

This is meant to be loose, fun, and worry free. If you'd like to write something along with your list, go for it! If you simply wanna list 10, that's cool too! OR, if you could give a crap about lists and Top 10s and music and would just like to make fun of my list, I'm totally down with that as well!


So... in closing, just e-mail me or raise your hand in the comment section so I can get a rough idea of how many people would be interested in participating. Oh, and you don't need to have a blog to participate either... everyone and anyone is welcome.

I don't think I've heard any music from 2008. I'm not kidding, and I don't bring it up to pose as some guy who's too good for modern music*. I'm just REALLY behind.





*Although, let's face it, I kinda am.

The last time I was aware of what was new in the music world was sometime around 1997. I still hear new stuff via the radio and my kids awful taste but I don't follow it. I'm mainly a jazz guy anyway and there hasn't been any good new jazz for years.

Fox said...

1997 was a good year for music. You had OK Computer, Homogenic, Dirty Three's Horse Stories, Pavement's Brighten The Corners. I'm leaving lots out, but those were the ringers for me.

Bill... didn't Randy Newman put out an album this year? You can list it 10 times, but I'll only be counting it once.

bill r. said...

Oh, that's right. Okay, I do have that one, although I haven't actually listened to the whole thing yet...it's a bit more overtly political -- and in other ways less engaging -- than I'm used to.

Fox said...

You could list that Freecreditreport.com jingle as your favorite song of the year! That song will be the death of me. I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to lance that out of my head.

bill r. said...

Which one? There's, like, twelve of them.

Jonathan Lapper said...

I like Randy Newman's observational songs like Marie, Baltimore, Louisiana, Same Girl, I Miss You and so on much more than his actual political stuff which I find very heavy handed. The Great Nations of Europe is so heavy handed it could be conceivably used as a blunt object against an armed intruder: "Someone's in the house. Quick honey, throw me 'The Great Nations of Europe.' I'll smash him over the head with it."

Fox said...

Bill-

The restaurant one. The one where our favorite 3-piece band looks like they're playing in a Long John Silvers.

But the worst moment of those commercials is the one on the radio - I hear these mainly on the radio - where the dude says "my posse's getting laughed at". Uh, yeah... that's cuz you're a dork dude!

Jonathan-

I agree with you on Randy Newman. My favorite song of his are his "girls names" songs: Rosemary, Suzanne, Marie... all favorites. The hushed horns in Rosemary are brilliant.

bill r. said...

I actually kind of like "The Great Nations of Europe", because it's funny. Not all his political stuff is heavy handed, either. "Simon Smith and His Dancing Bear" isn't, for instance.

My favorites are probably "Guilty", "Louisiana" and...a whole bunch of others, too!

Jonathan Lapper said...

Simon Smith isn't exactly political like Great Nations or Political Science, and funny or not, they're pretty obvious. Now Sail Away is a good one that I like a lot although when I was a kid I thought it was just a song about how beautiful it was sailing into Charleston harbor.

Daniel Getahun said...

Oh for SURE I'm in for this. I have a similar year-end music feature of my own. This year is already packed. I'll either narrow it down to albums or singles for your list...

Fox said...

Daniel-

Will you be doing your feature again this year? Creating another soundtrack?

Daniel Getahun said...

Definitely. I'm just waiting until Januaryish, right before I do my year-end movie reviews.
