Music Monday: November 9th 2009

Had a brilliant idea last week. I know, I'm awesome... Sent the following message to most (might have forgotten a few) of the Nextboppers.

"I want to gather a few of the artists on Nextbop and have them suggest a song every week to build a sort of playlist. I want to know what you guys are listening to, what you find dope, what you think absolutely everyone needs to listen to. It can be any genre, any period, absolutely anything. From Stravinsky to Wu-Tang to Nirvana to The Bad Plus to Art Blakey to Bob Dylan. Anything!"

Here are the results... in alphabetical order... no favoritism here. [Click Here] if you don't see them!
