My 25 most played artists of 2009:
Ween holds on to the number one slot again. Did I get anything new by them? Aside from their new live album and some rarities, not really. I just love 'em so much that the plays never stopped rolling in.
2. The Rolling Stones
Kept on truckin' with the Stones this year, adding the albums 12 X 5, Emotional Rescue, December's Children, and Steel Wheels to my collection, plus the live bootleg Get Yer Leeds Lungs Out! I still like pretty much everything I've heard from them even if I am beginning to supposedly scrape the bottom of the barrel with them according to public opinion. We'll see how much I like Undercover and Dirty Work in 2010...
More R.E.M. mania this year, adding Green, New Adventures in Hi-Fi, Fables of the Reconstruction, and Monster to my collection this year. Still love this band.
4. Bob Dylan
Near the year's opening I bought John Wesley Harding, The Times they are A-Changin'…
