The Time Was 1973
episode date - December 11, 2013
We continue our countdown through my son Kyle’s list of his 100 favorite songs at #79. I’ve been having so much fun working our way down this list and I’m still discovering new things here, even among tracks that I thought I already knew.
For instance, the Strokes album has been a ubiquitous presence among so many music fans for so long that my own negative opinion of the album began to calcify. Opinions are important when it comes to enjoying music, but an open mind is much more important, and I’m welcoming this opportunity to revisit a few of my own prejudices, while discerning opinions about other tracks that I barely know at all.
Featured tracks include;
79) Skinny Love – Bon Iver
78) A Lack of Color – Death Cab for Cutie
77) Two-Headed Boy – Neutral Milk Hotel
76) If You’re Feeling Sinister – Belle and Sebastian
75) A Certain Romance – Arctic Monkeys
74) Jellybones – The Unicorns
73) Maps – Yeah Yeah Yeahs
72) Hard to Explain – The Strokes
71) Take Pills – Panda Bear
