Every Day I'm No Longer Tumblin' The Best Songs of 2009
This blog gimmick has been cancelled due to a lack of demand, but I will do one final letter of the people’s choice if there’s any interest in the comments section. I’m going to end this post with a question mark so that anyone interested in answering via the Tumblr dashboard can do so as well?
P.S. This means your answer should be a letter of the alphabet?

Good rundown if you can put up with the disgruntled old person “voice,” which I find to be one of the most unbearable things in the world to read.

"Perhaps the best explanation of why this might be so was offered in 1963. In “Formal Theories of Mass Behaviour”, William McPhee noted that a disproportionate share of the audience for a hit was made up of people who consumed few products of that type. (Many other studies have since reached the same conclusion.) A lot of the people who read a bestselling novel, for example, do not read much other fiction. By contrast, the audience for an obscure novel is largely composed of people who read a lot. That means the least popular books are judged by people who have the highest standards, while the most popular are judged by people who literally do not know any better. An American who read just one book this year was disproportionately likely to have read “The Lost Symbol”, by Dan Brown. He almost certainly liked it."
“Joel Waldfogel, author of ‘Scroogenomics: Why You Shouldn’t Buy Presents for the Holidays’, argues that 20% of the money we spend on gifts is pure waste. “Per dollar spent, the things we receive as a gift are 20% less valuable than the things we buy ourselves,” he said in an interview this week.”—Try Christmas Saving, Not Christmas Shopping

Amnesty International (for whom this new song was made) claim “if you were wondering - ‘Chase the Tear’ is a reference to a paper tear-style ‘tear’, not a tear from an eye!” When I heard the song and its title I instantly thought it must be a nod to Giorgio Moroder, considering the very Italo Disco nature of the track.
