I never agree with these so called experts who make up there "best of" lists, but its still fun reading them!

I see David Bowie at #2, 6 and 5 respectively so far....no real surprise as death seems to improve people's perceptions
of those artists!

a classic example,
I have numerous scrapbooks of various charts through the years when I saw a teenager and occasionally, say once a year,
the top radio stations both here in Australia and the UK (back then here in Perth the top pop stations were 6PM and 6IX, remember them bob_32, one is now called
96FM, the other 1080 6IX)...
and they would conduct polls amongst their listeners, and rarely prior to Lennon's death did "imagine" feature high in the lists, not though, its a surprise if its not
in the top two or three!)

and Bowie gets a #1 on that one

I like looking at these charts to see something I may have missed during the year
already wondering what Car Seat Headrest is all about
since this is a light new release week
I'll be checking out some of these releases on these charts
that's how you discover new music
I miss my Spotify

me too....
if I notice an artist im not familiar with that keeps whose name/album keeps recurring on these lists I will always go back and listen to them because
afterall, no matter how many new releases I listen to over the year its simply impossible to listen to everything all of the time.

with Car Seat Headrest, I cannot even recall seeing their name on Spotify in their "new release" lists???

heres their full bio from Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Car_Seat_H...dio_albums

and the link to the lead off single from the album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEsItsZphwQ
