Lists Lists Lists!

Posted in Music by jukeboxparables on December 20, 2009

Is it just me or has every music / movie etc site published a ‘best of’ list in the past few weeks? It’s kind of annoying, but on the other hand it is coming to the end of the decade, so we’re seeing best of yearly lists which have been blogged about yearly of course but not many of said websites were around in 1999 so I guess it’s free market for the ‘best of decade’ lists.

Yes I’m going to cave, but I’ll do it all in ONE post. This being my uber best of music best of the decade list!
