No Artwork, No Title

Summary: When I was at UMASS, I did a radio show at the radio station. Before I got burnt out and making playlists each week started to feel like work, I wanted every single week to be something I wouldn't mind having if I were stranded on the hypothetical island on which music nerds are forever sticking themselves.

For this list, I originally set up this 4-part structure for as many basic states of mind I might find myself in: dark and brooding, angry pissed off want to smash shit, happy jump around sing along, and blissful chill out. It didn't work. Even some the "happy" sides ended up kind of bleak. When I re-did those parts, they became considerably shorter and full of less songs I really love than songs that worked as purely an academic exercise. Keeping things obscure for obscurity's sake was pretty silly as well, for a lot of reasons. I can't make a DI list without Springsteen just because everyone knows The Boss. This place has had too much of an influence on my music taste, and I'll never have any way of knowing what everyone's ever heard anyway.

Basically, this would be the kind of playlist that I'd put together on any given week if I could ignore all FCC guidlines (and warp time, because while I played a lot of the songs here many times, not all of them were written yet/or known to me at the time). It transitions through what may or may not be considered a variety of music, depending on how the individual listener is going to classify and sub-classify these bands/songs. I think some sub-genre of punk rock is probably at the center, even after drifting off in other directions, it inevitably returns to something that someone out there refers to as punk rock. I don't really know. It's stuff I like. That's really all that matters to me now.

I actually don't mind Eurasia as much as I did when it first came out. It's much better than something like "Guiding Light" or "Neutron Star Collision." Though I do agree that were many, many better choices by Muse he could have made.

I LOVED the second half of IWB's list. One of my favorite sections of all of this time's entries.

Some Kind of Hate was a joke, right?

I enjoyed the last section a lot.

I really enjoyed the skater rock from this playlist. It sounded like a soundtrack from Tony Hawk soundtrack but I can see how other people could find it annoying. It is an aquired taste. I am surprised I enjoyed it as much as I did.

Good point. I'd just tried to forget that song existed.

I didn't mind the Muse song in your entry!

It's easy for me to pretend like the non-album songs don't exist, thank God.

She used Steve Earle + a great Bruce song + the second half is very much to my taste. I have no beef with the list. Hope she participates next time, I liked her running diaries a lot too.

Thanks! I just recently discovered how good that song is. Pretty epic, but then again, it's easy to get lost among tracks like Supermassive, Starlight, and Knights.


As for IWB, this got a lower ranking from me. I focus on the vocals first when it comes to a song and I'm not a fan of punk-style singing/yelling. So most of the songs in this tracklist didn't do anything for me.

Including one of the few good songs of Neon Bible was a welcome addition though! Plus, Shatner's cover of "Common People" was jaw-droppingly good.

This. I thought it really improved in the second half though.

I'm surprised that anyone would've put this one last. Definitely a fun list, flow wasn't so great, but the song selection was pretty awesome.
