My iPod has 31,302 songs. 1,173 of them are rated 5 stars. On a recent cross-country drive, listening to a playlist consisting solely of those 5-star songs, I found myself whiling away the miles trying to decipher what set each one apart from the other 30,129.
So I’ve started a Tumblr to record the results of that ongoing effort. I’m going to try to update it daily, but life being what it is that’s more of a wish than a promise.
Keep up the great work, Tim! Long-time, huge TMJ fan (since mid-80’s) and have been following your success and now your twitter feed and tumblr blogs. I went through every one of your current 5-star songs last night and added many to my playlist for the gym. When I found out you’re a fellow lower-county Westchester-ite it all made sense to me…
I really appreciated your 5 star songs journey. You introduced me to a lot of new music and a reintroduced a lot of songs I had forgotten about. Every few weeks I would go to your site and get lost in a wormhole listening to all kinds of music and I added many songs to my 5-star collection.
I have been following for a few years and really should of expressed my gratitude earlier. I’m glad you made it all the way through but sad that I will no longer have new posts to look forward to. You have had a positive impact on my life and my enjoyment of music. Thanks for sharing you list.
