The Tracks We Wore Out

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.

This one’s for you New York

So at the end of this week, i’ll pack up my records, take the pictures off the wall and move myself to Philadelphia. It’s been a good run in New York and I’m gonna miss it. But don’t fret, I’ll be back.  But I wanted to put up a little mix that reminds me of my time here before the rest of the week consumes me.

There were the ups and downs, epic nights and defeated ones. But I loved every minute of it.

More adventures on the way.
