Phil’s Faves: Albums, March 22, 2020

Over time, my listening habits have changed and at the moment I usually listen to albums completely through. I haven’t done that in years, but it’s actually very rewarding—particularly when the album is good. Every album that will be on this list will fit that category.

Songs from the albums on this list forms the basis of my countdown list for the “Top 9 at 9:09” segment of my “Prime Time Theme Attic Show,” (Mondays, 8P-10P ET) on mostly alternating weeks, along with my “Phil’s Faves, Songs” lists!

Here’s a link:

It’s another peak into my listening habits—which is a goal of mine. If you want to know where I’m heading or what I think about some new music, you will find it here.

I honestly don’t expect there to be much volatility on this list because these albums are what I have been basing many of the sets on my show.

Once again, there will be no boundaries. I will go wherever my musical muse takes me.

Phil’s Faves: Songs, March 22, 2020

This is a weekly Top Ten list of what I consider to be the best songs that I listened to the previous week. Most songs will be current, but there are no boundaries. I’ve already stated on this web site that I am obsessed with music. I am constantly hunting it down whether it’s online, on CD, from my personal collection, from a library (Yes, I think the library is a great source of music–especially for music that you aren’t sure about.), TV, or radio. Since most of these sources mostly emphasize new music, the odds are pretty good that most of the songs on this list will be new. But in my search, I don’t use any boundaries for the other sources. I am just looking for good music that I haven’t heard, or happened to forget about. Everyone, including myself, has forgotten way more great music than they can ever remember-even if they are also music fanatics.

Also, there will be no rules concerning songs on this list. A song can show up or drop off a number of times. This will be the most volatile of my lists. It all depends on how much music I am exposed to during the week and what I find interesting. On really obscure stuff, I will try to include the source, if I know it.

Most of the songs heard on this list have been played on my radio show, “Prime Time Theme Attic,” heard Mondays, 8PM-10PM ET!

This list forms the basis of my countdown list on the “Top 9 at 9:09” segment of my “Prime Time Theme Attic Show” on mostly alternating weeks, along with my “Phil’s Faves, Albums” lists!

The Grand Philby Finale and More Takes Place Monday Night, 8PM-Midnight EDT!!!

It is the end of the Philby season.

In some way, it’s a bittersweet event like the seventh game of the NBA finals, World Series, Stanley Cup, or the Super Bowl.

Even if it’s incredible, you don’t get another one for a long time.

On the other hand, if it IS incredible, it creates great memories that you can relive with other fans!

Philby Hot 100 Songs of 2019 Award Winners!!!

I’ve heard it said before that a song or single is kind of like a musical business card.

I’m pretty sure it wasn’t the songwriter or the artist that made that statement.

I construct every one of my shows thinking that it was the best music for those moments in time.

I rarely ever wish I could take one of them back!

I treat my weekly shows as if I am the music programmer at my own radio station.

And from those shows, I construct my weekly Fave Song lists, just like in the radio days, when almost every station had a music guide of what songs they played.

A song cannot appear on my year end list without having been played on one of my shows.

Those same lists then get analyzed for my year end list.

So, here we are.

I like to think that the songs I select are a piece of someone’s heart, or soul, if you will.

They certainly are much more than a song!

My putting the them together in this list is more an effort to rank how I, as well as other listeners, reacted to the songs.

The songs cover such a variety of styles, it would be impossible to say that one is better than another. But where I felt that someone exceeded at what they did on their project, I gave them a special award. Those are truly mine! 

Also, this is the first time that I put links to the songs to examine for yourself.

That was a whole other experience!

I discovered many videos I didn’t know existed. I also found live versions of songs when there wasn’t an official audio version of the song. Some were spectacular!

This makes the list, in a sense, it’s own piece of art. It makes it a fresh and breathing list for anyone to explore!

87 of the tracks are represented, and I tried to find them all! I didn’t time it out, but I’m sure it would take 5 to 6 hours to explore the songs on it that have links.

Regardless, this will be a list for further exploration!

So here it is!

This year’s song list of brilliant musical achievement!!!

  1. One Water—Mike Gentry (Mike Gentry) [Best Arrangement, Best Production]

2. Light This Candle—Deni Bonet (Bright Shiny Objects) [Instrumental of the Year, Best Fiddle Song]

Phil’s Faves: Albums, March 8, 2020

Over time, my listening habits have changed and at the moment I usually listen to albums completely through. I haven’t done that in years, but it’s actually very rewarding—particularly when the album is good. Every album that will be on this list will fit that category.

Songs from the albums on this list forms the basis of my countdown list for the “Top 9 at 9:09” segment of my “Prime Time Theme Attic Show,” (Mondays, 8P-10P ET) on mostly alternating weeks, along with my “Phil’s Faves, Songs” lists!

Here’s a link:

https://whfr.fm/streamer/

It’s another peak into my listening habits—which is a goal of mine. If you want to know where I’m heading or what I think about some new music, you will find it here.

I honestly don’t expect there to be much volatility on this list because these albums are what I have been basing many of the sets on my show.

Once again, there will be no boundaries. I will go wherever my musical muse takes me.

Phil’s Faves: Songs, March 8, 2020

This is a weekly Top Ten list of what I consider to be the best songs that I listened to the previous week. Most songs will be current, but there are no boundaries. I’ve already stated on this web site that I am obsessed with music. I am constantly hunting it down whether it’s online, on CD, from my personal collection, from a library (Yes, I think the library is a great source of music–especially for music that you aren’t sure about.), TV, or radio. Since most of these sources mostly emphasize new music, the odds are pretty good that most of the songs on this list will be new. But in my search, I don’t use any boundaries for the other sources. I am just looking for good music that I haven’t heard, or happened to forget about. Everyone, including myself, has forgotten way more great music than they can ever remember-even if they are also music fanatics.

Also, there will be no rules concerning songs on this list. A song can show up or drop off a number of times. This will be the most volatile of my lists. It all depends on how much music I am exposed to during the week and what I find interesting. On really obscure stuff, I will try to include the source, if I know it.

Most of the songs heard on this list have been played on my radio show, “Prime Time Theme Attic,” heard Mondays, 8PM-10PM ET!

This list forms the basis of my countdown list on the “Top 9 at 9:09” segment of my “Prime Time Theme Attic Show” on mostly alternating weeks, along with my “Phil’s Faves, Albums” lists!
