let the lists begin - the 2010 soundtrack

December 29, 2010 Candace Morris 4 Comments


It's the end of the year.  In Candace speak, this translates to LIST after LIST.  Things I DID do, things I WANT to do, places I've been, places I'll go, people I love, people I hate...wait.  Well, you get the idea.  I've got a few to share with you because I think they are interesting and if you are reading, you probably think I am interesting, so you are now subjected to what I find interesting.   So. It. Goes.



Today's list is my discography of 2010...the soundtrack of my life this last year.
In order of appearance.

No disclaimers.


Okay, here's my disclaimers...ahem, explanations.

One:
 I love Goldfrapp.  The end.
"Head First" wasn't my favorite at first, but it has really grown on me and I adore it.
(I think I might die and go to Zanadu heaven from this video)

Two:
Arcade Fire's "Neon Bible" is by no means a new record, but when I moved to San Diego for a few months at the beginning of the year to be with my sister, she had the CD in her car.  I listened to it over and over and over and I began to fall in love with it.  

Three:
Because I was introduced to Arcade Fire this year, I found it serendipitous that they released a new album that very same year.  I loved Suburbs from the beginning, and I do not take to new music very easily.

Four:
Kelly introduced me to Fleet Foxes when I stayed with her this last summer.  I had heard of them, but figured they were another indie band I wasn't interested in hearing (Band of Horses, Mumford whatever) and cast them off.  One afternoon as Kelly was painting in her studio and I was writing in the neighboring room, I heard her listening to it and I asked her to burn me a CD for the 12-hour trip home.  I haven't removed it from my CD player since.  That was 6 months ago.  I should really stop being such a snob...but golly, it's so very fun.

Five:
The Velvet Goldmine Soundtrack.
My sister loves David Bowie, and though I had always loved him by proxy, I was a bit of a poser in my knowledge and appreciation.  She finally sat me down to watch this amazing and campy film, and we all realized what a kick-ass soundtrack it boasts.  Now I can't say I know any Bowie better, but I am now a loyal fan of Velvet Underground and Lou Reed.


This is the new-to-me music I've absorbed into my soul.
I do feel obliged to mention that without Radiohead, I would not have survived the year.
Particularly "In Rainbows"

And YOUUUUUU?
What tunes this year have kept you spinning right round, baby?
