My Top 20 Bands - Music Listography Revisited

My Top 30 Favorite Bands – Music Listography Revisited

Another new year of my life (one-day post-birthday), and I’m feeling that list making craving again. I think its time to revisit my Music Listography book. Lists are one of my favorite addictions, and the act of curating often leads to creation. Music as muse. I could use a visit from the muse to get this new me year going.

Feel free to add your 30 to the comment section, or make your own Listography list in your own spaces, online or offline.

I will include playlist links for Spotify and YouTube, as well as in-post Spotify playlist, so you can press play and spin all 30 right here, right now, if you’d like.

Though I will be following the book from each list to the next, my answers will not reflect a particular order. I am such a music obsessive that it will be challenging enough to stick to things like “top 30“, much less try to decide whose #1, or #13, that’s just too cruel. So, without further ado, here we go with the first revisited list.
