Yesterday I added to my ongoing collection of CDs-to-replace-my-old-favorite-well-worn-cassettes. I picked up a copy of TLC’s “Ooooh … on the TLC Tip” at Newbury Comics in downtown Boston. This was an album that helped shape and form my early, early teens, and it kicked off my appreciation for female musicians with attitude & early 90s hip-hop. Did you know that the album came out 18 (!) years ago?! Man, does music change.
There’s been SO much coverage of 2009 reflections and looking back at the 00’s (or the naughts, or the decade of Y2K…). And there’s been a lot of coverage of music and the music industry over the past few 10 years, which I love. So I wanted to share some of the recent cool stories I’ve seen – enjoy!
- Forrester reflects on the past 10 years of the music industry
- Boston Globe picks out the top 10 most irresistable songs of the decade
- Not just about music, but a really cool look back on where we were 10 years ago in history from USA Today
- A recent Rolling Stone issue calls out some Top music-related lists of 2009, including RS magazine covers, albums & songs of the decade
- 2 stories from Mashable: Rise of digital music and predictions for 2010
- Music Choice (ya know, the music channels on Comcast cable) is on Twitter!
- AND, 2010 kicks off with my Dad as a featured artist on MyLItv.com! 🙂
- Songza Sets just launched – they’re mini 10-song playlists that stream online. Lots of really intriguing categories. Love the weekly highlights from the Hot 100 lists, and I really love the selections on the Ska list
If the 2000’s could sing:
“I don’t know where I’m goin’
Now that I am gone
I hope the wind that’s blowin’
Helps me carry on
Turn on your radio, baby
Listen to my song….
Turn on your record player
Listen to my song
Turn on your night light baby
Baby I’m gone…”
-Harry Nilsson, “Turn On Your Radio”
