This Week’s Top 11 Playlist – 29 November 2013

Hey, Comet ISON!  I am SOOOOOOOOO disappointed in you. A five million-year trip from the Oort Cloud turned into a suicide jump into the sun.

This was worse that the time in ’86 when Halley’s Comet sucked so bad that viewing conditions from Earth were the worst 2,000 years.  And don’t get me started on Comet Kohoutek back in ’73.  Another “comet of the century” dud.  

At least we had Hale-Bopp in ’97.  I saw that standing on my front steps.  Still, it was a little underwhelming.  

In protest, none of the songs on this week’s Top 11 playlist are about comets. Screw them.  But thanks to Mediazoic for the hosting.  They don’t let me down.
