Q-Picks 2008

Q-Picks 2008

I realize we're already into February, but I've finally got around to jotting down my favourite music for 2008. I tried to keep the lists to the top 10, but when it came to jotting down my favourites for the bootleg songs, I honestly couldn't chop it down to 10... So that ended up being a list of 14.

When I was going through my iTunes lists to write down my favourites, I noticed something very interesting... The number of commercial songs that I collected this past year dropped noticeably compared to the previous year, but the number of mashups I collected was considerably more. And overall, I collected more music this year than the previous year. So my involvement as a mashup producer this year has noticeably changed my listening habits.
