“Listening to these 2005 songs brought me back to college visits with my son – thanks for the sweet memories!”

“Great year! My Morning Jacket Z, Gorillaz Demon Days, Sigur Ros Takk. All great!”

“@WXPNFM thanks @WXPNDanReed Racing in the Streets! 1978 is the # in music!”

“[Plans by Death Cab for Cutie] is great. 2005 music sticks with me most maybe because it was a transition year to college. These were all pretty important to me: Coldplay X&Y, Sufjan Stevens’ Illinoise. New Pornographers’ Twin Cinema, Broken Social Scene, Imogen Heap Speak for Yourself, Stereophonics Language. Sex. Violence. Other, Kathleen Edwards Back to Me, Brandi Carlile, Spoon Gimme Fiction, The Bravery, Motion City Soundtrack Commit this to Memory (and a handful more but this list is long!) Yes. 2005 was a good year, indeed.”

“I love [Plans by Death Cab for Cutie]. I didn’t discover it until a few years ago. It’s my fault – I moved away from Philadelphia and wasn’t listening to WXPN.”

“For me the best albums of 2005 were I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning by Bright Eyes & The Sunset Tree by The Mountain Goats.”
