Sometimes, you stumble upon a post in social media, and for a moment, you’re completely dumbfounded. You need to take a breath and let whatever it is that just caught your attention slither its way into your psyche.
Welcome to 2014! Things don’t seem to be much better here in the future, do they? (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
While you’re in a food coma this week, enjoy these reads from ladyblogland.
Reviewing 2005 in music surprised me somewhat because I’d forgotten how many of my favorite albums were released that year. So please, let me metaphorically shove them into your hands.
2001 is a hard one for me – not for lack of great music, but more because I was a depressed human making bad decisions during most of that year, and come that September, the national climate took its own downturn. The feels, man. Let’s have them.
People, wasn’t 2000 only just yesterday? I swear that it was, even though I was still in high school then and still driving Sid The Angry Volvo (R.I.P.), and even though the musicians in some of these videos look like babies in comparison to now, 2000 just happened.

Though The Letter P was one of the easiest letters for me to narrow down a Top 5, I still have the sneaking suspicion I’ve forgotten some obvious, perfect song. Let us listen to my picks, and then you tell me:
Oh, friends, we’re chock full of love, lust and loneliness in this week’s Ode to The Letter O. Stick through until the end since I’ve left you all a present. Oh yes.
Look at us, reaching The Letter G in favorite-song-goodness already! This week, I talk about one of my all-time favorite songs of any letter, semi-cheat on my own rules, talk about the difference between live sets and studio albums, and mention that historical artifact, The Virgin Megastore.
