Friday random ten: My year in music, part 3

Here’s Part One, and here’s Part Two. I hadn’t originally intended for there to be a Part 3, but there was enough music in that post-Christmas splurge to make it worthwhile, so here we go.

1. Diga Diga Doo – The Hot Club of Cowtown
2. Welcome To New York – Taylor Swift
3. It’s The Hard-Knock Life – from “Annie”
4. It Takes Two – from “Into The Woods”
5. Heart Attack – Demi Lovato
6. Still Crazy After All These Years – Paul Simon
7. I’d Rather Drink Muddy Water – Asylum Street Spankers
8. Paper Doll – Fleetwood Mac
9. Time Warp – from “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”
10. Mayor of Simpleton – XTC

Many of these were from album purchases. We saw Fleetwood Mac at the Toyota Center here in December (awesome show, highly recommended), so The Very Best of was bought to fill a big hole in my collection. (I had “Rumours” on cassette years ago, but it had long since been lost.) Similarly, I once owned Paul Simon’s “Concert In The Park” on CD, but it must have gotten lost in a move. We got Taylor Swift’s “1989” because, duh. Into the Woods and Annie were movies we saw over Christmas break, so of course we got the soundtracks. The Hot Club of Cowtown (two CDs) and the Asylum Street Spankers (“The Last Laugh” – who knew they had a new CD?!?) are bands I’d thought had broken up. “Heart Attack” was an Olivia request, “Mayor of Simpleton” was a song I rediscovered thanks to the Classic Alternative station on Sirius XM, and “Time Warp” was because I’d realized I didn’t have it.

And that was my year in music, more or less. What new tunes are you grooving to that I should consider for my year in music this year?
