I've been carefully ranking my music collection in iTunes. I reserved five stars for my all time favourite songs, songs that changed my life, songs that I think of when I think of major iconic musicians. When I started using Last.fm I got the idea to listen to all my five star songs and 'love' them. Having transfered that meta info I could then access it using their API and a bunch of PHP code and make this, my latest greatest mashup.
Sam John Hopkins (March 15, 1912 – January 30, 1982), better known as Lightnin’ Hopkins, was an American country blues singer, songwriter and guitarist, from Houston, Texas. Rolling Stone magazine included Hopkins at number 71 on their list of the 100 greatest guitarist of all time. Hopkins' style was born from spending many hours playing informally without a backing band. His distinctive fingerstyle playing often included playing, in effect, bass, rhythm, lead, percussion, and vocals, all at the same time. Read more about Lightnin Hopkins on Last.fm.
