lost in translation

I guess i'm one of those people that make silly lists about everything(like the High Fidelity guy),so i couldn't help but to post some of the things i loved this year and the decade that is going away.More like a random collection of things that had an influence in my life.To be honest there are so many things i will leave out or neglect to mention but that's how it works.So these are some of the things that come in my mind without having to think really hard.2009 was a really good year for our blog,we made some new friends and expanded our horizons.We want to wish you all a happy new year full of happiness.Thanks to anyone who has been following or commented on this blog.Thanks to anyone who has given us the chance to raise our voice and last but not least to all my friends and family that are a true life inspiration.

Thanks for introducing me to loads of great tunes from past to present. Some songs had been long forgotten, some never been fully appreciated and some totally unknown. And for your top list of all things 2009 - the Haw-Lin website makes my day greatly. Here's to 2010.

Just went back and listened to Metro Area "Caught Up" again. It's the last track on the CD. And I just realised how brilliant that track is!
