The End of the Musical Decade

This is the time of year people put together their top ten lists. Since it's also the end of a decade, the lists have been expanded. Rolling Stone lists the top 100 albums of the decade and the top 100 songs of the decade. So I started making my lists and realized that there are just too many songs and albums that I loved over the years to narrow it down to ten. Since I started working at Triple M in 2002, for me, that's when the musical decade began, so, in no particular order, here are some of the artists I fell in love with at FIRST listen over the last 7 years. Los Lonely Boys, Will Hoge, John Butler Trio, Gnarls Barkley, Amy Winehouse, Ray Lamontagne,  Vampire Weekend, Mika, Jet, KT Tunstall,  Umphrey's McGee, Stephen Kellog and the 6ers, Duffy, James Hunter, Altered Five, Run Side Down, OK Go, The Killers, Donavon Frankenreiter, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, DeSol, Ryan Shaw, Regina Spektor, Eric Hutchinson, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Jackie Greene. I'm sure I left some out but these are the one's I can think of right now. . What were your favorites? Next time,  some of my most memorable concerts.

World's Worst iPod: Kajagoogoo "Too Shy"
Gotta love the '80s! Depending on who you're talking to, Kajagoogoo's "Too Shy" is either a song that defines the decade, in a good way, or it's a song that gives all other '80s songs a bad name. It made it to #5 on the charts in...
