This post is a small milestone in that it is the first time I have devoted a Song Of The Day post to an artist that I have already given one to. Caro Emerald is really leaving a mark on my music psyche. The song, Absolutely Me, which is off her outstanding album “Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor”. Blues, Jazz, Hip-Hop, great song. Like it so much I put up the recorded version and a live version..
These songs are the ones that I will remember most from this year. It certainly appears that the world of music is beginning it’s move away from the pop artists that have been so prevalent and returning to the creation and production of some exceptional songs. About time I’d say. I attribute this to the web and the ability of many new artists to reach the public through such areas as Bandcamp, soundcloud, YouTube, Twitter etc. The advent of these devices has greatly expanded my musical horizons and will continue to do so.
I have chosen not to do a finite top ten list as I appreciated all of these songs and at certain times would have been my number 1. In addition, I have chosen songs new to me this year, meaning they could be from anytime, although the majority are 2012. I hope you enjoy.
