Best of 2019: SONGS

11th Anniversary

BEFORE I BEGIN, A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE TIMING OF MY LISTS: I’ve been making year-end lists on this web site for eleven years. In that time, not much has changed. However, there have been some changes, and one of these changes which I have noticed is that other publications are putting out their year-end lists earlier and earlier each year. Sometimes these lists are even being seen as early as Thanksgiving!

It gives me no pleasure to start my lists so early, but if the fake lists are starting earlier and earlier, then the real lists (mine) must do so as well — in order to stay competitive. This is how the Marketplace of Ideas works in the no-holds-barred world we live in, both online and off. It’s a shame but it’s what I must do in the service of the greater good (my lists). Simply put? If we want to thrive in today’s world, we must adapt. That means my lists must start earlier this year. They must start TODAY.

I wonder … will we live to see the day when a year-end top-ten list is published in October? It could happen … though I doubt it. On the other hand, perhaps it will. We have no choice — have no choice — but to continue making my lists to the best of my ability in the hopes that you, my readers, take them for what they are: The best lists you have ever seen, the greatest of all lists. And there’s simply no timetable for that.

So without further ago, the moment you’ve been waiting for all year … the “highlight of the holiday season” … the beginning of my lists! “Ready, aim … FIRE (lists)!”
