Five Year Flashback: Top Ten Songs I Was Listening To – February 2007 Edition
My February 2007 mix originally clocked in at 21 songs in total, and you are getting the top ten. Some items of note:
1. This mix was the first time many mainstay artists appeared on the list, including Amy Winehouse and Andrew Bird, who unfortunately were cut out of this iteration. For the record, the tracks were You Know I’m No Good and Measuring Cups, respectively.
2. Toby Lightman (featured in the 10th spot) did a kickass version of Jim Croce’s Operator, which I had put on an earlier mix.
3. If this could have been a top 12, you’d also be listening to Ginny Owens’ Waiting For Tomorrow and Rise by Army of Me. But I am well disciplined at keeping within my own arbitrary boundaries, so you’ll have to find those tracks elsewhere.
