Set List - One Year Later

May -

A time to reflect on cherished Set List memories.

Over the past seven years, I would have to say posting and writing about commercial jingles is a top highlight.  The music industry and society are somehow uplifted by songs representing branded products being advertised on television.  A few seconds spirals into massive communication - what is the name of the song, who is the artist, and so on.  This massive communication unites a global audience bent on one common ground - music.

Set List will always be inspired by Duran Duran.  However, Set List is meant to unite all those with a passion for music in any genre and simply start a conversation.

I am sad not to post anymore.  Yet, I will be forever thrilled should my blog continue to create conversation.

Set List Anniversary

Honest moment -

There is no way to recover the difference between October 25, 2015 and May 7, 2016.

I can only hope to bring viewers and passersby together in celebration of Set List's six-year anniversary.  In May 2010, I explored the world of niche blogging with one goal in mind - unite music fans worldwide.  The tone I write with every post is personal, but the message I portray with every post is global. 

I chose playit08 as my Blogger url to represent profound and impactful music that anyone would want to listen to and memories of my first concert in 2008. 

The story behind Set List is forever known.

I remember my first debut into niche blogging.  I was promoting an article I wrote for Associated Content, a source no longer in existence.  The article covered my top 10 favorite Duran Duran songs.  Although I no longer remember the exact list, the post set the tone for inspiration and drive to make Set List what it is so many years later.

I remember my excitement with my first comment and my first shared YouTube video and my curious Amazon Associates posts.

Amazon Associates!  I am no longer with Amazon for Set List - due disclosure being owed.  If you were previously interested in the products I was promoting, please leave a comment below this post with what you would want to see again.

Anyway...Happy Anniversary, Set List.  Six years so far and will only keep going.

Have you ever...

...had a song constantly playing in your head like a stuck record loop?

I am in love with "Uptown Funk" and listen to it on my iTunes often.  I am guessing this is why the song is always on my mind.

Of course, somewhere in the Set List archives, "Uptown Funk" has played before as well.

I suppose re-airing the video and posting a follow up will clear my head.

For those who cannot get enough of "Uptown Funk," consider Amazon.

Classic Live v. Modern Live

Classic v. Modern - Not the same

"Planet Earth" is an ultimate Duran Duran favorite as performed live. 

Wembley was simple on stage and electric within the audience.  The first note was powerful and evoked a sense of something amazing to come.

Coachella was busy on stage and lacked the profoundly eager audience reaction.  Why was the band not already on stage?  Why was there a need for a backup vocal?

I am devastated to compare Duran Duran then and now.  Yet there is a striking difference with and without Andy Taylor.  Time has moved on and Duran Duran has moved on.  I haven't.

Do I have a right to be stuck in the past?
