At this time of year I start to concentrate on my annual music party, the 34th edition scheduled for July 1. The party always has a countdown aspect to it in addition to a separate music theme. This year’s music theme is forgotten and/or obscure (new or old) party songs.
The countdown has a game attached to it. The participants try to put the top 45 (as chosen by those who submit their favorites for the year) in the correct order. Lowest score wins (points accrued by distance from actual chart position). So if you had the #1 song at #45 you’d receive 44 points-OUCH.
The music year for the party goes from June-May so I do a bi-annual “year-end countdown”. I will be posting my favorites in different genres here over the next couple of weeks.
As tracked on my personal chart from June 2016-May 2017
