Last year made a playlist of 47 indie artists, alphabetically. This year continues the saga with 50 more artists I thought were pretty grand. I am now done with the "E's" and will continue my great journey through Wikipedia's list of indie artists. Be prepared for more. I still have the rest of the alphabet to go through.
Featuring: The Cardigans, Dashboard Confessional, The Cloud Room, Chairlift, The Coral

Every "moment" in my life can be related to a song. I can hear a song and it makes me think of that moment. Every moment from an awesome day hanging out with friends as a teenager, break-ups, make-ups, deaths, births, breakdowns, everything is a song. This is the first of the series of Pieces of Me. Everything from Metallica to 50 cent to Lifehouse.
Featuring: Ac/dc, Gary Jules, Papa Roach, Jimi Hendrix, Marvin Gaye

Random songs that bring me back to hot summers and good times growing up in Baton Rouge in the 1990's. Makes me think of Don Carter's, Fun Fair Park, 2010 / The Zoo, The Broadmoor Theater, The Texas Club, LSU tailgating, and on into college at SLU. I can almost taste the Strawberry Hill, Miller Lite and Hurricane's. Too bad they don't have drive-thru daiquiri shops outside of BR and New Orleans!! It sure sucks getting old...
Featuring: House Of Pain, Silk, Next, Soul Asylum, Ace of Base

Here we are again, the third year I've comprised a playlist of music that represents this season to me. It's the only time of year where everything is so beautiful, yet it's dying. And it's great to have music to help remind you of those quiet moments, mellow and beautiful.
Featuring: El Ten Eleven, The Last Bison, Look Mexico, Foxhole, St. Vincent

This playlist is very dear to me, when i was younger me and my dad never really communicated well, the job he had he was always on the road and i never understood why. He was really into music, that's all he did when he returned home. At the time i never really understood why we never communicated then finally it hit me music can be happy or sad, good or great and the way i felt about my dad was indescribable until i started listening to his vinyls. When i got older we realized the only way we could communicate was through music, and these are a few of those songs that we used to sit down and not speak a word and just listen to the music flow around us. We never understood each other kinda like how music is invisible but everywhere. Now we are the closets we have ever been all because of music. i decided to share this with all of you because if there's someone out the...

I recently read 1984 and Brave New World, and I'm writing a short story (amongst other things) to reflect my feelings. I don't have all these songs on my iPod, so I'm using this to make a playlist for the story.

I'm not a fan of bloated playlists with a ton of filler. In making this playlist I tried to pick songs that the general populace probably hasn't heard, picking songs I believe are among the best from each band. Granted everything is relative, but I think these songs are able to give a great perception on each band and help those who haven't had a chance to hear them discover something new. After all, nothing is more exciting than the experience of discovery. Hope you enjoy!
Featuring: The Wombats, The Cave Singers, Craft Spells, Lykke Li, Monsters Of Folk

It's hard to find good pre-made mixtapes to make out to these days - I don't feel like getting down to Rhianna - can ya dig? There's something genuinely sexy about soft songs. They provide the backup, you're the stars.
Featuring: Air, The Cure, R.e.m., Pearl Jam, Patti Smith

This is the critical list for 2012's summer songs that go well with the surf, sun, and relaxation. Laying by the pool, walking down the boardwalk, or just hanging out in your hotel room. I used this playlist to ignore all the loud tourists and other beach nuisances. Nothing beat just laying by the pool with the palm trees above my head and not a cloud in the sky.
Featuring: Penguin Prison, Active Child, Ellie Goulding, Haim, Rac

As the Olympics draw nearer, the spotlight on the world stage is aimed right at London and all of Britain. I've tailored an Olympic Special playlist to celebrate this momentous occasion. This music spans decades and genres and celebrates the music which makes Britain, great.

In honour of the upcoming hair metal musical Rock of Ages, here's what I consider to be the very best of the genre. I tried to stick to a high energy playlist, although I'm certainly not discounting the ballads! They'll be on a separate one I plan to do in the future. I also only featured one song from each band so as to provide a real cross-section. You have your well-known hits, headbanging anthems, and some underrated and often overlooked songs.
Although dismissed by some as fluffy or unimportant, this music featured some of the best guitarists and voices that rock has ever seen. Despite being clad in hilarious outfits and over-the-top makeup, these bands were truly talented and deserve to be remembered.
Featuring: Van Halen, Scorpions, Guns N Roses, Bon Jovi, Kiss

This is what I would listen to were I to drive cross country to California with my windows open to the night air. Every one of these songs gives me a feeling that I could go anywhere and do anything. Hopefully, they'll give you the same effect.

I know I am only 14, but these songs hold a very special place in my heart. Many of my memories are of me being little, waking up on a Saturday morning, hearing my dad making breakfast and playing these songs. I didn't know who sang them, but I loved each song. Now I know who sang them, and I don't love them any less. These songs make me feel all teary and happy when I listen to them. I hope you feel that way too.
Featuring: The Who, John Cale, The Primitives, the Smiths, The Velvet Underground
