10×10 — a Playlist

Earlier this week Katie asked me to list my top 5 or 10 bands. A simple ask that requires somewhat little thinking … but that wasn’t good enough for me. I whipped out my sketchbook and pen and I not only jotted down who I thought my top 10 bands were, but I pitted them against each other in a Battle of the Bands to determine the TRUE top 10.

But even then, that wasn’t good enough. What if I also chose my 10 favorite songs from my 10 favorite bands? And what if I chose them using the same method I chose the order of the bands? That’s right. 10 bands, 10 brackets and 100 songs total to develop the ultimate “top 10” playlist for my Spotify. The list is below, as is a link to the public playlist if you want to damage your hearing.
