In some ways, the last favorite song mix tape of the year is usually the most interesting one to me. I usually get to add quite a few last minute songs to it as I discover great songs on other people’s best-of-the year lists.
Also, I realize that after a whole year of music-listening certain songs that I thought I didn’t like so much, have really grown on me and get included now.
And then there are the songs and albums that come out in time for the holiday shopping season. Most excitingly this season was a new album by my friend Thimo Sander – and it’s a beauty.
So lots of great music to choose from, which made it extra challenging to keep the compilation to (about) 90 minutes.
