My best of 2009

Posted Thursday, December 31, 2009, at 9:06 AM

Another year has rapidly passed us by, leaving memories, both good and bad, in its wake.

And with 2010 upon us, it's time for a quick look back at 2009.

Specifically the music of 2009.

Here's the stuff that came out during 2009 that caught my attention.

I've broken it down into several categories because I have never had the ability to concentrate on just one particular form of music.

However, I don't want to stop with just my list. I'm sure I have forgotten about, or just plain overlooked, some cool stuff that came out in 2009, so I want your list.

Just log on to the comment section at the bottom of this blog and let me know what got you movin' and groovin' in 2009.

Do it however you want to. Break it down by categories (include as many or as few as you like) or just come up with one big, catch-all kind of list.

Bottom line- just have fun with it.

And by the way, I hope everyone has a happy and prosperous new year!

Peace

TM

Since my own high school sports career fizzled out before it really reached its zenith, I have managed to live vicariously through the student/athletes of the 16 high schools I've covered for Areawide Media since 2001. I've witnessed the highest of highs in the form of state championships. I have also seen first-hand the sting of disappointment when the ultimate prize was within reach, but still eluded the grasp of its pursuer. But through all the ups and downs associated with high school sports, my respect for the young competitors that suit up each night, along with the men and women who guide them, remains unwavering. Blog mission: With my passion for music, especially live music, running second only to my passion for sports, I'll try to devote this space to both. Especially when it concerns our region and what's happening around it. Look for commentary and features on area sports figures and musicians, along with things to get out and do in the beautiful Spring River/Ozarks area. But I'll not totally ignore the outside - I'll also hit on some national happenings in the wide worlds of sports and music.
