About this playlist
This playlist came about through a competition that was doing the rounds a few years ago, select just 100 tracks but from 100 different artists, singers, bands, faceless techno groups, whatever, just music that has left an impression on you or music that has never left your side thought your life journey.
Why the image of a tree stump, well for me it reflects the musical timelines, we don’t listen to the same music we do now as when we were 10, as the years go by we create new lines of interest, musically that is, they may grow, as we learn more about the music, or they may crack as we lose interest, but like this tree stump we will have strong musical roots that go deep and as we age they get stronger, we appreciate more genres, we reminisce on some branches of music of our youth and if we’re lucky me shoots emerge as we discover new bands or singers to add to depth to out musical core.
As it began as a competition for everyone to enjoy, lots continue this and if you enjoy my musical journey through this playlist, let’s hear yours, leave it in the comments below.
