Although I seem to spend most of my time reminiscing about older music, it’s nice to take a look back at more recent times to see if things have changed all that much for better or worse.
This show focuses on a myriad collection of album tracks, all released around October 2003, and therefore, now ten years old. Besides noting how quickly a decade can pass us by, these songs a now struggling for relevance in a marketplace that has been quick to dismiss most pop music from the past decade. So, let’s listen to these tracks and determine for ourselves if they stand a chance in our future, or if it is time to move on.
