The Tracks We Wore Out

d056facb9a0b9881ba31179ea8d4c320387845aa_m

Pitchfork just (somewhat prematurely) released their list of the top 500 tracks of the decade as part of their ongoing P2K: The Decade in Music series. But I guess someone had to kick off the end of the decade lists that are sure to start permeating our lives starting now. Regardless, it’s quite a feat for anyone to take on. When these things do inevitable come around, I love to turn them into playlists for my own bizarre entertainment. You see, I love lists, of any kind really. And these are my favorite kind. So I thought I’d take my playlist of Pitchfork’s top 50 tracks of the decade and put them up here. I’m sure someone will come along and put up all 500 somewhere, but that level of obsessiveness is for another fool to deal with. Enjoy.
