Open Thread: Your favorite songs of 2019?

She Drew the Gun

By David Futrelle

So hey, let’s go OFF TOPIC today and talk about our favorite songs from the last year! Here are some of mine (a couple of them technically came out on video in late 2018, but all were on albums released in 2019).

I’ve got these and a whole bunch more on this Spotify playlist.

Let me know what songs/albums/artists you all have been listening to lately! Preferably from 2019 but earlier stuff is fine too!

Update to off topic:

Resolved. Gave a lift to the next town on her journey after she decided none of the local options we found looked suitable.

Found some folks to help her for tonight in said next town. Let her cram an extra set of clothes, a few extra pairs of socks, and a bag of pilot bread, and other small useful things for the road into her backpack. She did not accept the water bottles I had because stainless steel, but I did rustle up a gift card to subway where water can be acquired tomorrow.

So, yeah, at least alright for another night.

I hate how stressful this was though, especially because I know daily life for her is probably WAAAY more stressful than one night of unplanned company. So still stressed, and feeling guilty about the stress.

So yeah. Back to the music recs! Off topic can be done! Categoried as local=resolved, global=needsWork.

@kupo:

True, thanks for reminding me of that. You also made me realize that I’m hyper sensitive to when I perceive I’m being ignored, so that’s something I need to look at!!

Anyway, I don’t think I can post a link because the piece may be too long (it’s about 49:00 minutes) but if you have a chance and some time, please check out Quiet No More (originally Stonewall 50). It was written to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. The performance by Heartland Gay Men’s Chorus is the only full version I can find online, but the version from Carnegie hall is a little better since it’s a mix of male and female voices instead of just men’s.

I had heard of TesseracT before but I hadn’t listened to their music. That is a good song. Thank you.

It’s not new music, but Yoyoka is an amazing talent, and it’s always nice to see performers enjoying the process:

ionnalee’s 2019 album Remember the Future is amazing. Here’s the opening track:

I tend to do a lot of skipping around on YouTube to find stuff I like. I also notice a significant break (sometimes) between whether I like a song and whether I like the song’s MV, so color coded lyric videos are helpful. There are also videos that consist of entire albums with time markers for each track. A lot of kpop groups/artists have more variety in their back catalogs than their “title tracks,” so this is useful.

Seconding Mrs Morley’s recommendations. I also enjoy the Form of Therapy channel, where a video producer reacts to kpop MVs and puts them in cultural context for non-Koreans. Their enthusiasm is infectious!

The winter weather is mild and there’s no snow, but at least I saw some stars when I went out. Also more rockets than usually, so I guess people had some great expectations.
