In a world of misses heres a 100 Plus HITS!
Have you had a chance to look at the latest print issue of Musea (#167 Mar.'09)? It's the big best-100-new-music-of-the-entire-world, music list issue. It's been getting a lot of notice from ... well all over the world. The London Symphony Orchestra sent me a nice e-mail, thank you - they made the list for their Youtube Symphony Idea, and so did a video by the Trons, an all machine combo from Australia. Plus much more.
It's fitting in these first years of the new millenium to, for the first time, find and celebrate the best music that is new and that is from every corner of the world.
Far as I know, it is the first time anyone on Planet Earth has chosen the best new music from all of planet earth.
But it is also the first time anyone had a CHANCE to make such a list. And that is due to myspace and youtube. These two sites have turned into auditioning sites for all the world. Anyone anywhere in the world can audition through his myspace music page - the biggest and best record company in the world, or through a video on youtube, the biggest and best short film company in the world.
Let me add this too. The list didn't stop with publication. I'm keeping it going, and week after week I am searching both myspace and youtube for more great songs to add to my list. I welcome all that are reading this to contact me with their new music or videos or their favorite new music or videos done by others, and I will consider adding it to the big list.
While doing the list I came across hundreds and hundreds of musicians who though talented, just did not have a great single song. I had to pass those by. I'm looking for single performances that have it all - great song, performance, arrangement, vocals, and whatever else makes a song great - something that makes that song the best in the world.
For you who have read the print list. I'd like to add just a few of the new ones here. And for the complete list see
