For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

I most probably didn't hear any new song released this year.

No, wait, I heard the new Thom Yorke songs. So that one's the best of 2018 cool

What's the difference in that and performers who named themselves from movies & TV shows like Fine Young Cannibals, Black Sabbath, BR5-49, Duran Duran, Method Man, Wu Tang Clan, Faster Pussycat, Blue Meanies, Luke Skyywalker, Molly and the Ringwalds, etc.? razz

i didn't like much this year. but hey, nothing new there lol

the few albums that i have listened to more than 10 times and would actually say i love, are:


01. negative capability - marianne faithfull

02. beyond the end - ed harcourt
03. heaven and earth (+ the choice) - kamasi washington

the first two of which were released in the last few months even. yet they are so brilliant,
both of them. i'm chuffed to bits with them and listen to them constantly.

before that, the whole year was just one meh release after the other, except for kamasi,
which was as good, if not even better than his previous album and ep.

everyone else's albums disappointed me, even the ones i was looking forward to, a lot. there
were quite a few cool songs tho. but end of year lists are for albums, to me, so i'm not going
to do a list of songs.
