The 500th Post:
The People’s Playlist
AS I reach the 500th post…
of my blogging ‘career’, it has been great reflecting on some great musical memories. Several years ago- when I first started Musicmusingsandsuch- I took baby steps and developed what I do- probably hitting my best a few weeks ago. It takes a while to get things good- and I have a way to go yet- but am pleased I have persevered and kept going.
Not sure what 2016 holds in store for new music- sure there will be some surprises- but will be exciting to see what comes next. To honour this post, I have thrown the blog open to the general public (people I know on Facebook) to recommend some great music- included here for your delectation.
It is still open- only have two submissions so far- so get your choices in…

“Glad to say many Edinburgh bands make a feature. Reminiscing I have to say that we had one of the best nights with Be Like Pablo in Aberdeen and Kelburn Festival was such a blast… My ear worm of last year was the Cate Le Bon one; so that’s prob. my favourite… New band? The Baskervillez”.
Get involved and let me know what songs you want included- I shall put them in. Here’s to the next 500 posts (or near as I can get)…
