OFF TOPIC - Top 20 of 2011 - Longlist


Forgive the off-topic post, but I wanted to share this with you.  Every year some friends and I compile our Top 20 tracks of the year and compare our choices.  It's a bit of fun and often a good way to pick up on some new music.

My approach is to go back through all the albums I've listened to this year and create a longlist of tracks to select my final 20 from.  This longlist is below for anyone who's interested.

Normal service will be resumed tomorrow morning when I'll post what is (hopefully) an interesting update on the marathon training.  Thanks for allowing me this musical indulgence.
