The Bawley100 - New Years Eve 2007/2008

Bawley was born from boredom and an idea that we could catalogue the best songs of 2007 and play them back over the fast approaching new years party.

Armed with one notepad, one pen, plenty of beers and a few G&T's the Bawley 100 was drafted.

The Bawley 100 was debuted at Racecourse Beach campsite where it provided the soundtrack to New Years Eve 2007/2008.

I expect this to become a ritual every year between Hummer and me Julie as I am too lazy to bother with such things but like to benefit from the CDs you create.


Geordie said...

Great list, what about Seawolf (Your a wolf), The National (Mistaken for Strangers), or Wilco (Impossible Germany)? I never heard loads of them so about to hit up i-tunes for some of them...

I look forward to the merchandise, I need a new t-shirt...

Bawley said...

Small, stop trying to out nerd us.

Bawley said...

and what about that shameless self promotion for m_humm and k-rad eh...??? more to come I'm sure :)

Bawley said...

Will have to check out the National, I have read about them on plenty of american music blogs but they don't really get played on the radio over here.

Bawley said...

Yes Number 78 Modest Mouse, Dashboard is missing from the m3u file that was on the cd. you can add it in yourself it goes between Bjork, Earth Intruders and MIA, Paper Planes.

Hi there,

Thanks for stumbling across my blog and for your comment.

I did do a top 100 albums of 2007, just not a tracks list like this one. Some interesting choices in here - maybe I'll do both at the end of this year.

Chris said...

You have a good list as well. I like you're method though. I'd like to try in at the end of this year.

I'm not surprised we both have "All My Friends" near (or on) the top of our lists; it's been quite popular anywhere and rightfully so. Also, I'm very glad you liked "Down Boy" as much as I did, it seed to slip by lots of people I've talked to.

"Ready For The Floor" and "So Haunted" are 2008 songs in the States, so if you remember, you'll definitely see them on my own end of the year list.
