Let's share songs from 10 years ago. It really was an incredible year for music.
What dated well? What were you listening to a lot from back then? What do you still listen to now? What didn't you hear from 2002 until years later?
I remember being obsessed with Original Pirate Material, Turn On the Bright Lights, Beck's Sea Change, and Cooper Temple Clause's debut lp, and wowed by Six by Seven's The Way I Feel Today and Geogaddi. But my album of the year was Lifted... by Bright Eyes. Can't believe the Desaparecidos came out then too.
I know it took me a year to really get into Flaming Lips's Yoshimi and I can't remember being into Sonic Youth around that time and Murray St came out (was too busy listening to Idlewild).
