“All About Money” is WMC#951

As I’ve mentioned before, I have been working on a musical top 1000 since 2007. It’s almost finished, another 50 or so tracks to go. Let’s call it my musical fingerprint.

It has come to my attention that a certain Dan Snaith, who works under the name Caribou, has been doing the same thing.

He recently published his top 1000.

There is about two to three percent overlap with my list.

Not on my list was “All About Money” (above), a queer but wonderful composition by an eighties studio project called ‘Spontaneous Overthrow’.

“All About Money” is also on the compilation Personal Space (Electronic Soul 1974 – 1984).

Keywords are cosmic, druggy, weird.

World music classic #829


Milestones” by Miles Davis is the 829th entry in my top 1000 songs. There is no hierarchy in this top 1000 list. It’s like a giant mixtape you can put on shuffle.

829 songs (six years in the making; i.e. compiling) account for about fifty hours of music. When finished, the list will feature more than 58 hours of music. The average song length in my calculations is three minutes and a half.
