Moka's 250 Favorite Songs of the 00's - A selection.

Bookmark Removed

I'm currently compiling my 250 favorite songs of every decade since the 60's. I'm clicking shuffle and choosing the first 50 songs that appear for this poll.

This is a work in progress. Only one song per artist but covers/collabs/ghostwriting/sideprojects get a free pass.

I do not recommend listening to these as a playlist but here's the spotify link either way for the adventurous:

Where do you live in that you got to hear her on the radio!? I struggle to even find anyone even among my more 'hipster' friends that listen to her.

five months pass...

Just clicked this and it hit my nostalgia nerve hard, provoking a wave of overwhelming sadness and regret. There was something about seeing the words "Hercules and Love Affair" near "Boards of Canada" that led me into a kind of backroom of my college memories, a pit of memories that is qualitatively distinct from anything I felt at my recent reunion. Ban Moka.

Don't ban me :(

Sorry I didn't mean it. I like the list. It was just a sort of Proustian moment I had seeing some of these songs grouped together.

Treeship, Friday, 16 June 2017 00:30 (two months ago) Permalink

Yeah hurts me too in the nostalgia... can't believe some of these are almost 20 years old.

There's two of them... maybe... noone knows... their contract in Warp doesn't have their names, they signed as a company called Roygbiv. Maybe there's 7 of them and those are their initials..
