Post here songs by 50/90ers that you especially enjoyed this year.

Let me start with *41472
Darnell's Encyclopedia of Bird Women by @G3 Darnell.

Fantastically psychedelic! I'm in awe of how different this is. So many inventive ideas!

Oh! So many. This one grabbed me from someone i hadn't heard before! @bunter

Can thoroughly recommend "Cyborg Catholic High School" by @spirulence -

I'm gonna go with Plants Fight Back by [@jeustan]. It's a wacky, manic garage rock insta-classic, performed with real brio

Thanks, @fresh spotless youth!

@thisisbeckyw - My Parole Valentine

This song is just so good. The vocal phrasing, imagery, the characters, it all comes together perfectly and it's ridiculous how good the song is.

Wanted to add this.
@Corey did such a great job with my lyrics.

Did you hear *41778 already?
Nun of Your Business by [@jeustan]

Absolutely infectious energy! And so fun and rocking!

For pure psychedelic weirdness, check out. Mystic Brotherhood of Slurf by @Freaks Of Nosmo 9


@ohkshea - Madeline *42585

Brilliant synthpop with some of the best lyrics I've ever heard.

For something very traditionally conventional, I thought WELL WORN by EDWARD 9TH STREET aka SPECIAL ED FERGUSON was pretty good:

I may be biased because of the coincidental cross town vicinity of @Wackamoose, but any such bias is offset by the language and cultural world made smaller and more intimate in this and others by this artist who often collaborates with vocalists/lyricists in South America and Africa.-

it's so fun and so beautiful

Tik Tok Tinman, by @Adnama17, @tcelliott, and a guy named Kevin. It's lyrically as deft as a fencer's footwork, and musically as raw and honest as it is catchy.

The lyricist doesn't have a 5090 account. Here's your chance to convince him why he might want to:

(Worst case scenario: the lyricist sticks around for a decade-and-a-half. You know, like I did)

Sweet and sad and absolutely beautiful. Marthie and Cindy.

Thanks for the mention, motisbeard! I'm new here and trying to listen to as much as I can. I've got about 30 saved songs. One artist I've really enjoyed is Robyn MacKenzie. Love her fresh melodies, phrasing, message, the whole package.

Here's another from Drive By Love Fest. Haunting, far away, Celtic, emotional.

GREAT THREAD. I have listened, or will listen to all these songs and I hope people continue to contribute to it.


Thanks for the shoutout, @Edward 9th Street! I just listened to this fantastic piece of old-school jelly by @cts three times in a row. A raw piece of social commentary with a powerful message.

Thanks much for the shout out, [@robynmackenzie]. Much appreciated. I'd have to say check out this song by JuS here:

Solid tune.
