My pal Becky Haltermon Robinson, punner extraordinaire and inventor of the Amazing Pump-o-matic Defrumpanator, posted her annual musical encapsulation over at her blog, Pump Up the Frump. Good stuff.
Now I'm inspired to offer a musical encapsulation of my own. I leave it to you to interpret the mix vis a vis the dreadful year that was 2016 in any way you like. Or you could just enjoy the music for its own sake.
Without further rambling, here's the list:
- Little Swing - AronChupa
- Dancers - Faderhead
- Dead Stars - Covenant
- Sex Beat - Sex Beat
- Shelter - Icon of Coil
- Arena - VNV Nation
- The Window of Appearances (from Akhnaten) - Philip Glass
- Lazarus - David Bowie
- You Want It Darker - Leonard Cohen
- Sound of Silence - Disturbed
- B()NES - M△S▴C△RA
Go ahead, have a listen over at YouTube.
And if you have a musical commentary on 2016 to share, please do so in the comments below. I'd love to hear it.
