My Absurdly Top Artists/Albums/Songs in 2009

I think my music taste has never been as diverse as it is now. Over the year I listened to many (new) bands, ranging from Kamelot, over Nirvana to lesser known bands like Director, Aranis and Florence + the Machine and different styles, i.a. Power Metal, Grunge, Alternative Rock, Indiepop, and many more.

I also (re-)discovered the awesome sounds of Bob Dylan, George Thorogood , Jimi Hendrix and Eric Burdon, because I ripped my father’s “oldie” CDs. Like others, I tried to create my own list based on my memories, but it was hopeless. So below you simply can see what artists/albums/songs achieved a high ranking on my profile.

I’ve only tagged 8/20 songs as “favorites” (here indicated with a (F)). This shows that not many of the songs would make it in an all-time-favorite list, containing songs that I like to listen to again and again. Still, the list is a decent indicator for my music taste in 2009.
