Any Major Favourites 2017 – Vol. 2

January 18th, 2018 Leave a comment Go to comments

This is the second of two compilations of tracks from the compilations I posted over the past year, with one song chosen from each mix.

Last year this blog celebrated its 10th birthday. Things have changed from those days; the number of music blogs is diminishing, and even the MP3 culture is being drowned by a migration to listening to streaming audio.

It was fun looking back at ten years in 2017, and at some of the nice feedback this blog used to get from media, especially, of course, Playboy which featured Any Major Dude With Half A Heart as the only website in its annual Music Guide in 2013 (the mix I posted to mark that occasion went back up by popular request). I featured right above the then still new-fangled Kendrick Lamar. I was also pleased by the many nice comments on the 10th anniversary from readers. Comments are the lifeblood to keep this site going.

I mentioned in the blurb for the first of these mixes that I don”t know how much longer I”ll run with this blog, though I have no immediate plans to call it a day. Indeed, I have loads of great ideas for new mixes, so I hope to be posting two more great compilations of songs from 2018″s compilations”¦

    I recently discovered your blog … wonderful inspirations. Not only nostalgic timetravelling, but thoughful connections and insights. Thank you. More than half-hearted!

    Don’t you dare even THINK about quitting…

    Okay, as a fellow blogger and long-term follower of your wonderful blog, you’ve shamed me into leaving a comment, the first time, I think, in all the years of visiting (and I’ve been visiting for a looooooonnnnnnnng time) that I’ve done so. There’s an element of “I am not worthy” of my till-now silence, as I’m genuinely awed by the breadth and diversity of the music you post (I’ve lost count of how many songs I’ve heard for the first time because of you), and put to shame by the wit and insight with which you write. I for one would be gutted if you stopped. Hope you keep the good work going.

    Oh, I’m blushing, Jez. Thank you for your kind words. I’ll have a look at your blog, which I hadn’t known of until now. Its title would describe my musical profile…
