Results of blog carnival “Music of the Year 2007”

Blog carnival Music of the Year 2007 My blog carnival “Music of the Year 2007” is closed – thanks to all 16 participants.


I had asked:

  • Your song of the year?
  • Your album of the year?
  • Your live concert of the year?
    (Alternatively, if you weren’t at a noteworthy concert: Live album/DVD of the year.)

Preferrably, it should be new releases of 2007, but if you came across something older and like that more than any new stuff, that’s also okay. :)

Quite varying music tastes have shown up – partly even at the same blogger – and even though I personally don’t like all of the mentioned music, it was actually interesting to listen to the songs and albums that were mentioned (some linked directly, some via YouTube searches etc.).

I can’t really create a hit list – but there were two clear winners:

  • Timbaland: 3½x with “Apologize” as best song, 1½x “Shock Value” as best album;
  • Genesis: the “Turn It On Again” tour was mentioned 5x (though not visited 5x).

I might create a special award to send to these two, but I think they’d laugh at me at best. :mrgreen:

Following is the alphabetical list of all participants – some mentioned more than one, some runners-up (in fine print, which caused the “half” counts above). On the bloggers’ posts (all German), there are sometimes also links to videos or homepages and explanations:

5 Trackbacks

    Ui, ganz schön viel Arbeit hast du dir da gemacht. War eine sehr schöne Parade und ich kopier die Tabelle vielleicht wirklich :-) Zumindest in den Paradenbeitrag :mrgreen:

    PS: ist schon ok mit dem Trackback. Kann man ja nie genug bekommen!

    Nachtrag: class=”nice”?!?!?!?

  2. U

    na, das war ja wirklich knapp mit der Teilnahme ;-)
    Spannende Zusammenfassung, bei der ich einen kleinen Fehler entdeckt habe: “Yaya con tioz”. Es müsste “Vaya con tioz” heißen.

    Das kommt von “Vaya con Dios”, “geh mit Gott”, hier von den Onkelz an ihre Schreibweise angepasst, daher statt “vaya con tios”, mit “tioz”.

  3. A

    sehr schöne und vor allem interessante auswertung… omg – ich mit meinem mainstream-musikgeschmack steche wieder voll raus (und dann auch noch an erster postition!). :roll: *lol*
    ich werde die tabelle auch auf jeden fall in dem beitrag posten.
    :applaus: echt gute arbeit andreas!

    @Julia: class=”nice” war ein auf mein Stylesheet bezogenes Relikt…

    @Ute: Danke für den Hinweis, “Yaya” kam direkt per Copy&Paste vom Originalbeitrag meines Namensvetters…

  5. c

    @Alex: Danke. Jetzt stell dir aber mal vor, ich hätte die umgekehrte Reihenfolge gewählt, und DJ Ötzi stünde an erster Stelle.
    :blossnicht: :bigsmile:
