And yet I may still post a “Best of” or “Top Ten of” 2005 list. If it was of the readers of this blog,I know the “Top Ten” would not be possible. And no it wouldn't be because there were too many to choose from, just the fact that 3 people, the Google cache, and a few blog aggregators still don't add up to 10.
But a hint for bands out there that want to actually appear on these lists. Be sure to schedule your “breakthrough”, “overnight success”, “buzz” to take place in the second half of the year, if at all possible.
This way the imminent backlash will happen in the following calendar year. Thus, your presence on someone's end of the year list will be secured.
