For some reason, a question I get asked a lot is, “What music are you listening to, Chris Hardwick?” I find that I have been designated as one of those people that other people are magnetically drawn to using both the first AND last name in the vocative. It’s an easy question to answer because every year on my birthday I start a new playlist titled after my current age so I can keep track of my favorite songs of the year as a sort of musical diary because I am a teenage girl.
Here is a recent example of said playlists that will give you the power to judge me:
I’m only half-way through “36” but so far there are appearances by Radiohead, Neko Case, Gary Glitter, Andrew Bird, Sufjan Stevens, Love Spit Love, Cherry Ghost, Liam Finn and Fleet Foxes. Let’s all meet back here in a year to see how that one turned out.
Please feel free to add some suggestions to the comment thread for all to see, thereby giving The Nerdist a “communal feel.”
