Never Left The Storage Card
Here we are at the close of another year and if you’ve been keeping your ears open then you know that 2010 was a banner year for “GOOD” music. Around this time of year, within the blogging circles, an interesting phenomenon begins to arise, commonly referred to as”Best of Lists“. Writers concern themselves with making sure you’re aware of what they deem are the best showings of the year. They then take these notions and compile them into a reasonably readable formatting, complete with a numbered scale of some sort as a gauge/guide that is then listed in a countdown fashion from highest to lowest until something or someone is named “Numero Uno” for the year.

For two, there are so many other blogs and sites that create them that we just felt like ours would get lost in the mix and for three, I’d rather not pigeonhole myself into making such a profound statement as “Such & Such had the best blah, blah, blah yakkety smakkety of the entire year“.
But I’ve recently been informed that maybe creating a list of some type would be in order and good for readership purposes, so ok…fine, we’ll put one together for the people but in true TSR fashion…on our own terms.
With all that said, TSR presents to you our:
“Top Tracks For 2010″

So after our upgrade from one Windows Mobile phone to another Windows Mobile handsetand then the great migration to a superior Android Phone, these were the tracks that were mainstays throughout those transactions. I had any and all manner of LPs and single tracks that I was perusing for writing about this year on my microSD cards and when I was done listening to and writing about it all, most albums and tracks were WinZipped, then WinRar’ed and uploaded To The Cloud” for safe keeping. All other musical fodder met a swift digital demise within the electronic “File 13“.
