My favourite songs

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.

Combining elements of both rock and folk music, along with disturbingly personal sentiments, dark humor, and a voice able to channel both the falsetto highs of Neil Young and the wavering raspy low tones of Leonard Cohen, Toronto's Hayden Desser has spent the last 15 years creating uniquely affecting music. The critically acclaimed musician first appeared in the early '90s armed with only his four-track tape recorder, his unexpectedly low vocal range, and an extremely detuned guitar.

Bad as They Seem is one of my favourite songs of all time. Jason Collett Joel Plaskett Joel Plaskett Emergency Cuff the Duke The Wooden Sky are artists similar to Hayden
