My decade in music

Inspired by Nollnolltalet.se a lot of bloggers have started to list their 100 best tunes from this decade during the past weeks. When I first saw this I thought I would never manage to list 100 tunes I like and on top of that rank them. But I couldn’t get the thought out of my mind so last night I thought that I might as well should give it a try. And as soon as I got started I couldn’t leave it behind. And to be honest it was far from as hard as I thought it would be.

What I realised though is that I listen mostly to the same artists and over and over again instead of trying to find musicians I never heard of before. In my younger years I was more influenced by my friends and what they listened to. And it’s not that I’m not sensitive to what my friends want to tell me, but nowadays I rarely get any music tips from friends to be honest. It just Stefan who once in a while tells me he’s found some good music he likes, and looking at my list below there are some bands there that from the beginning were tips from him. I don’t listen to the radio either more than when I drive a car, which isn’t that often. The conclusion of this is that there are probably lots of good music out there who would qualify for a position on my list if I had heard it, but I haven’t. So if you miss something that you think I might like, please tell me, I could use some more variation in my Spotify lists.

Talking about Spotify, there are five tracks on my list who aren’t found on Spotify but here are the 95 other tunes. To compensate the five lost tunes I have made them bold in the list below.
