Observations:

  • Clearly the trend that started towards more electronica (specifically house and trance) continues this year.
  • Jay Z made a strong showing, largely due to me going to the Manga Carta world tour which sparked a re-interest in his epic catalog
  • Couple of really old songs and artists showed up, like Kansas, Hall and Oats and Frank Sinatra. This is because I started using Spotify in addition to iTunes/Amazon which has made getting to older music much easier and fun to rediscover stuff I haven’t heard in a long time.
