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.

Townes Van Zandt (John Townes Van Zandt, born at Fort Worth, Texas, March 7, 1944 and died at Smyrna, Tennessee, January 1, 1997). He was a and singer and poet. While alive, Van Zandt was labelled as a cult musician. Though he had a small and devoted fanbase, he never had a successful album or single, and even had difficulty keeping his recordings in print. Many of his songs, including "If I Needed You," "To Live Is To Fly," and "No Place to Fall" are considered standards of their genre. AllMusic has called him "one of the greatest country and folk artists of his generation." Read more about Townes Van Zandt on Last.fm.

Rex's Blues is one of my favourite songs of all time. Blaze Foley Guy Clark Steve Earle Gram Parsons John Prine are artists similar to Townes Van Zandt

Enough with the reading, try some listening. Perhaps you are interested in adding this to your collection.
