Best of 2020 (Music Countdown)

Post by Shrykespeare »

Hey guys,

With the year winding down, I've gotten in touch with most of you about a music countdown that I would love to do starting in February 2021... namely, the best of 2020.

Because GOD KNOWS we need to find something positive from this year.

As of now, here is where we stand as far as participation:

Yes, definitely:
Shryke
Leestu
Transformers
Surfer
Six

Possibly:
Geezer, though he may be joining us halfway through
Ron B
Screen

Probably Not:
JohnErle

No:
Chien
NSpan


I would very much like to do a Top 50. We would ostensibly start on 2/1/21.

The rules for picking songs are not quite as stringent as the Top 100 of the Millennium that we did this year. The following songs may be included:

1. any song is off an album released in 2020
2. any song released as a single or hit a chart in 2020, even if it was on an album released in a prior year.
3. if it didn't hit a chart but started to gain airplay/download traction in 2020 or a video wasn't created for it until this year (basically, you didn't hear it until this year), it's eligible

CAVEAT: If you included the song in your Best of the Millennium list (2000-2019) you may not reprise it here.

This is one year's worth of music, and in the end it's more about sharing musical experiences than it is about rules, so I trust you guys to adhere to these rather loose rules.

Look forward to bugging you all again next year! :twisted:

I'm in but why start so late into 2021? By the time we're done it will be April!

Why not start in Jan?

I'm cool with a Feb 1 start, but I could definitely do mid-January as well.

As I mentioned to Shryke on FB, I have a half dozen or so albums I listened to this year from the usual suspects, but a song countdown would get pretty repetitive and you'd end up hearing nearly every track on some of those albums.

If we do the usual album countdown closer to Christmas I'll try to participate.

We can do mid-January if you all think you'll be ready to go by then.
