A Drop Of Blood On A Sugarcube - A 10,000th Day Playlist

>> Wednesday, 7 October 2009

So last month I celebrated a unique sorta birthday - I lauded the day I turned the big 10,000. Days old, that is. This monumental date happened to fall on Wednesday, September 16th, so I threw a bash on the 19th and subsequently shattered the old record for most people in my apartment (whilst drinking one, maybe two, too many brews).

I intended on making a 10,000th day playlist for my party, a definitive, 27-song set of indispensable songs in my life (27 was chosen since it's how many years old I was at the time of turning 10,000 days). The list did not happen in time for my party since constructing it proved painfully difficult, incredibly time-consuming, and frequently futile. Finally, I've settled on the 27 tunes below, although I should qualify my selections by stating these are my choices at this exact moment in time. I'll probably change them tomorrow. A couple times.

It's been a great 10,000 days for my ears.

Postal Service - 'The District Sleeps Alone Tonight'
Yo La Tengo - 'Sugarcube'
My Bloody Valentine - 'I Only Said'
Radiohead - 'Fake Plastic Trees'
Erasure - 'A Little Respect'

Nick Drake - 'One of these Things First'
Stereolab - 'Tomorrow Is Already Here'

Yeah I haven't listened to Glynis in a long, long time.

Is your list in playlist order (meant to be played in sequence)?

Playlist order. Choosing 27 songs took forever. Ordering them took almost as long.

Amazing list! I was so jazzed to see Glynis on there.
