  • the goal of NEXT is to find you your next new favorite song. So if only 2 songs of 15 suck then I’m doing my job. Hell if I were a baseball player I’d be all world. I disagree about Snider. The man is magic. One of our generations greatest storytellers.

  • Indeed Through NEXT I discover great artist with superb music. Indeed you are batting high. I just think of 700 songs from this year some will deserve better the top 45.

  • I gotcha. To each his own. Hopefully the next 2 weeks make you a bit happier. If not you do have 700 NEXT songs and could hopefully just make your own list. In fact, I would love to publish a Grooveshark mix of yours.
