Top 140 Countdown 2021

This is at least two months behind, but I just want to hold myself accountable by using this resource that renewed in late December 2021 before I could cancel it. I have it for another year so why not?

For Context: I have been listening to music for what I consider “professional” benefits for the last 25 years. I am an unabashed auditory junkie. Yes, this is just a personal list of music I like, but if you are passionate about you Love for music and you have never been able to successfully play an instrument by yourself or with others then I think you know where in the psyche this resonates.

I limited this to one song per artist (with a few notable exceptions). This is about showing the Creative process so this is an Experiment on how my projects will be judged when I post more professionally acceptable content. In other words there is a method to my madness, but I would rather that be for me to know and you to figure out. I intend for this blog to be interactive in the future so this is just the first step in the process.

Lastly, I am sure if you are curious enough to read this then you would like actually listening to the list. If so I use Spotify under the name P.M. Shadow. I am working on several playlists so I hope to share more soon. With that, here is the list.
