i have around 4,000 songs in my iTunes library. it occurred to me recently that i could determine my favorite year for music by figuring out what year is best represented in my library. whatever year i have the most songs from must be my favorite year, right?
apparently, it is 2005.
makes sense, i suppose. standout releases from 2005 include:
Boards of Canada - The Campfire Headphase (maybe my favorite album)
Beck - Guero
The Clientelle - Strange Geometry
Gojira - From Mars to Sirius
Hellfish - One Man Sonic Attack Force
Kaiser Chiefs - Employment
Ladytron - Witching Hour
Mew - And the Glass Handed Kites
Sufjan Stevens - Illinois
close runner-ups: 1985, 1996, and 2004
mystery solved! three cheers for 2005!
