I think I’m finished with FAWM for the year. My final song (if you can call it that) was inspired by yet another Facebook meme: “15 Albums That Changed My Life (And Then Some).”
I never do well with “best-of” listings, but rather than making a list I decided to create a medley incorporating references to albums that meant a lot to me. There are a lot more than 15 of them (at least 27) and I will be absolutely stunned if anyone can name all of them. (Mike Skliar found one that was unintentional, so there may be more than the 27 I did deliberately and the one he found.) I will post the answers in a few days but the one hint I’ll give you is that the first four references are all to albums from the same year, 1989. And there’s one more from that year in the mix as well. (It was a good year.) Oh, and basically everything is a reference.
For the record, there are no samples on this track, and the only loops I used were two percussion tracks. Everything else you hear is either my voice or guitar or harmonica, sometimes treated with effects, but all mine. Some of it is rough but it was a lot of fun (and a lot of work) to create.
