NiceI’ve been listening to this group since @Eephus called them out in the new music thread a month or so ago. I would have picked it earlier but I couldn’t decide what song to choose off the album.
18.YM - The Present Moment - Ball Park Music
In the rain, in the rain
How can I spend every night
Watching you all die
Scrolling your lives away?
Round 18 Friday July 15
Round 19 Saturday July 16
Round 20 Sunday July 20
I had an 18+ minute song on my short list (it remains on my SoTY list)... had I known about this contest I would have picked it lastThe ten minute Sondre Lerche track pushes the playlist past fifteen hours. That's 50 more picks and 3:15 longer than the 2021 Year-End Draft.
Well done, everyone. I've been shuffling this sucker for the past two weeks and I'm still discovering new stuff with every listen. Much appreciated.
Here's my addendum to the playlist.
I think Avril deserves to have one of her songs on this list so I'm nominating "Bite Me" from her latest album, "Luv Sux".
Avril Lavigne - Bite Me
I was surprised no one selected any COIN? Can't let that happen. I'll skip their one song that actually charted ("Chapstick") and select "Brad Pitt" to represent their contributions to the 2022 music scene. I really enjoyed their latest album and encourage everyone to check it out.
COIN- Brad Pitt
I have no excuse for this selection other than there was a slow period in February where I wasn't connecting to any new music but I found this tune amusing in a novelty sort of way.
Bowling For Soup - I Wanna Be Brad Pitt
That's all I've got to offer.
