No, that’s not one of mine but the pic seemed appropriate at my lack of being able to fully organise my album of they year charts for this year yet. Today I got my arse in gear and combined teaching administration with some good old listening and managed to confirm the eighteen albums that I would be leaving out of consideration for the year’s best album.
That leaves thirty six (at the moment) in the 70-79 category and four in both the 80-89 and 90-100 sections, so forty four albums left in the running – which is way below the usual Christmas run-in.
It might make life easier in sorting them out but makes me realise just how much I’ve missed this year and how much I need to prioritise this next year. It’s not about time, it’s about prioritising that time.
Life without music is a lot harder than with: it helps me think, work, cuts my stress and gives me a sense of well-being that a lot of other things don’t.
And so I’m off! Hopefully with news of what was given the boot later on today.
Stay tuned music peeps!
