We’re in the home stretch for 2011 so it’s time to review the year what was. I need your pick for your favourite album of the year and then to pick one track from that record.
Personally, I keep going back to Washed Out’s Within and Without and the song “Eyes Be Closed.” I don’t know what it is about this song, but it always makes me happy. I’m also rather partial to “Need You Now” from Cut Copy’s Zonoscope.
Give it some thought. I’ll leave this playlist open for the next couple of weeks, so feel free to visit and contribute often.
Here are the rules for The Recommendation Project.
1. Look me up on Rdio (www.rdio.com/people/AlanCross) and find the playlist marked The Recommendation Project Part 21: The Best of 2011.
2. Think about all the songs in your library and give me a song from your pick of the best new album of 2011. All genres are fair game.
3. Let your friends know about the project. Get them to contribute. The more the merrier, you know?
4. And just so there’s no confusion, I don’t have any fiscal connection to Rdio other than I’m a regular $10/month subscriber.
