New Year's EveIt's that special time of the year to start reflecting on the year gone by; the things we did right and the things we did wrong... but most importantly of all to start thinking about my New Year's Eve party playlist of the best of the year, to take a short - but coveted - spot in the evening's proceedings. In contrast to last year, which I found to be quite effortless and obvious, this year was a struggle. I initially had an internal debate - this year was weak for amazing songs, so should I start scraping into classics and late 2010 entries? I began adding them, but then I had an awakening. You know what, if I'm gonna make a best-of-the-year playlist, I'm gonna do it with integrity and do it right. Who cares about 2010. Stop living in the past, people.

So I eventually reached this, which I feel has shaped nicely, even if there is the odd stray classic in there. But to be honest if I could add We Found Love 47 times I just would.

For hitting the dance floor, that's a pretty good list. Overall, poor year for music. Should go down well at your party Ben
#3  Posted 3 years ago  |  + 3 Ditto
You should go further back like the 2000's lol

Hope you have a good one!

2011 had some good songs, but not a lot. 2010 had loads of good songs.
I wonder what 2012 will bring? (apart from a song which'll be called "Apocalypse" or "The World Shall End This Year, Rejoice")
#5  Posted 3 years ago  |  + 1 Cool
Fortunately we have 2012 (It Ain't The End) already in the playlist to cover that
#1  Posted 3 years ago
I really dont get how 2012 (It aint the end) is in the much musice dance album I mean it is such a happy subject to dance and have fun about the apocalypse and all
#2  Posted 3 years ago

Ben - your taste in music is similar to that of a teenage girl.
I see no tracks here that are in anyway outside of shitty radio charts.
#12  Posted 3 years ago  |  + 17 Ditto
I am a teenage girl and im disapointed in thoughs songs.
Once agian i think breaking benjarmin should be in the play list
#2  Posted 3 years ago
I think you should add good songs in there
#3  Posted 3 years ago
Shame most of that music is crap.

Okay, trying to look past the fact that Rihanna is on there so many fricking times, but where the hell is Cobra Starship?

Looks to be a good playlist, but then again I don't listen to my radio so what do I know?

You can never go wrong with some Skrillex.
#17  Posted 3 years ago  |  - 3 Lame
Never. Except all the time. Music that you can't even tap the beat out to, let alone listen without getting vertigo is dangerous to your health.

will use. Thanks Ben.

I take refuge in the classics and with that I don't mean 2010. There hasn't been good music produced in years or atleast since 1970's.
#22  Posted 3 years ago  |  + 3 Ditto
the grunge era was actually pretty good, nirvana, alice in chains, soundgarden *cough* fuck pearljam *cough* stone temple pilots.

No good stuff?

You could always improve it by adding a bit of Hell or Highwater.
Actually, screw it, replace the entire playlist with Hell or Highwater's album, then it'll be good.
Pretty much everything else on there just drags it down a bit.

Sorry to say but I've heard better playlist play in an old retirement home than this........ And that's putting it nicely. Better luck next year buddy.......
#24  Posted 3 years ago  |  + 1 Ditto
Are you kidding me? 2011 was the best year in music we've had for awhile. Just because you listen to shitty music doesn't mean it was a bad year.

New albums for Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sum 41, Dispatch, and many more.
#25  Posted 3 years ago  |  + 6 Ditto
same here with party rock, hated it at first. I've always hated moves like jagger, hopefully always will
#7  Posted 3 years ago
every time I hear that song I am torn between singing along, and just burying my head in my arms, that guy's voice is just so annoying.
#8  Posted 3 years ago
You need some foo fighters, coldplay, red hot chili peppers, ect.

I guess those just aren't your genre of music

Coldplay forever!!

Don't forget there were new Cut Copy and M83 albums this year. I've also been listening to Holy Ghost! (Wait & See appears to be the single) quite a bit as well.
