(31) Days of Good: 12.31.12

(31) Days of Good: 2012 has come to an end.  Between the huge amount of good music this year and a much needed vacation, I have once again failed to recognize everything 2012 had to offer.  Thanks to Spotify though, you can at least take a look at the 500+ tracks I believe to be the year’s best.  But before I close things out, I still need to talk about one more artist and track.  Frank Ocean’s channel Orange was my biggest surprise of the year.  I hate most RnB, but Ocean isn’t your typical RnB artist.  His lyrics are smart and his production is top notch.  He really is a one-of-a-kind artist, with huge crossover appeal.  Heck, even my wife like’s him, and she hates RnB more than I do.  So without further ado, my biggest surprise of 2012, followed by the (31) Days of Good: 2012 Spotify playlist.  Enjoy and Happy New Year.

(31) Days of Good: 12.30.12

Since i’ll be in the car for the long trek home after another great holiday, today’s good is a bit different.  I can’t drive without listening to something.  I love talk radio in the morning and music on the way home from work in the afternoon is the best.  A little bit of both on long drives is my favorite.  So without further ado, I’d like to give a little shout out to my favorite podcasts that make those long drives bearable (and help me discover new music on regular basis).
