I've gotten a copy of the entire "best 100 songs of 2010" in my quest to at least start listening to new (to me) music. So far I am loving this mix.

Standouts include the Titus Andronicus track (#27) that sounds like Guided by Voices sing over a Dinosaur Jr. song from the best era of Dinosaur Jr. I had heard the new Sade album was good but the track included (#96) is really great and making me want the whole record. The list also introduced me to the1shanti, an almost nerdcore rapper doing rhymes about various bits of technology. I also enjoyed the bits of world music making the mix that I certainly would have missed completely (#22, The Good Ones, from Rwanda).

  • Whoa! Just just just saw this post, Matt, and so so so gratified that you’re enjoying my list. If you ever need any musical anythings, I’d love to help out. I’ve been a Metafilter user (#3292) forever and ever.
    Happy 2011!

  • Whoa, I had no idea it was you Marquis behind it. A music loving friend showed me the list and sent me a zip of the whole thing. I totally love it.
