2011 / 2012: My personal Soundtrack [15, quick list]

.

I started keeping a diary on October 26th, 1997. I was 14 and in 9th grade. I kept up until 2004, and every year, I made a ‘personal soundtrack’ with songs that reflected last years’ themes and storylines.

Here are 20 songs for ‘Season 15’, October 2011 to October 2012.

.

  • Dillon: “Thirteen Thirtyfive”
  • James Vincent McMorrow: “Breaking Hearts”
  • Andrew Bird: “Fake Palindromes”
  • Gregory Alan Isakov: “That Moon Song”
  • The Head and the Heart: “Down in the Valley”
  • Ghosts I’ve met: “Winter’s Ruin”
  • Holcombe Waller: “Qu’Appelle Valley, Saskatchewan”
  • Ben Howard: “Depth over Distance” (Live)
  • Melanie Safka: “Uptown & Down”
  • Gladys Knight: “Midnight Train to Georgia”
  • P.J. Harvey: “England”
  • Bill Callahan: “One fine Morning”
  • Rebecca Black: “Friday”
  • Jim Bryson & The Weakerthans: “Freeways in the Front Yard”
  • Lambs and Wolves: “The only Light”
  • Freelance Whales: “Generator First Floor”
