Tastemakers At Work
Well, I heard we couldn't all make it this Thursday, so....I mean, I can do this Thursday, the 24th, and I can host it. I have to work next Thurs night. the 1st. Traditionally it has been Thursday, but I could be open to other nights. I just want everyone to be happy, you know?How was your vacation?
Well, we're good for whenever -- we thought it was this Thursday but if it's not on everyone's calendar that might be optimistic.I'll go out on a limb and say that Thursdays aren't written in stone for us either.Our vacation was nice, thanks. Made some progress on the decade list.
To be honest, I have no idea how one would be able to assemble such a list. You're bound to miss something. Aren't you? Where do you start?
I will free up my own precious time fir you all. Come on people, let's get er done.
Is music club brunch lame? My songs kinda are.
Well, I had to make some decisions such as do you limit to one song per artist or not. Logically it would seem a song is a song is a song -- but then we'd end up with 10 songs from like three artists and it's just too biased then in my opinion......so I'm going with one per artist/band.I'd like to have it somewhat spread out through the decade as well. There are obviously going to be areas I don't know well and won't have in the mix, jazz, pop, Toby Keith, etc......but I'm OK with that.So from that point it's a matter of making a big ass playlist and lopping songs off of it as I go along until I'm down to 50 or so and then start to group it.
This interview is fantastic. Quincy is the man! https://www.gq.com/story/quincy-jones-has-a-story
