Rutas Inéditas

JC Badlands aka Arnold Layne presenta sus listas infinitas del 2020

Nuestro colaborador Juan Carlos Belmonte se toma su tiempo y sus ganas para elaborar unas listas definitorias del año que hemos vivido (y alguna repesca del 2019 y otras décadas). Aquí las ofrecemos para que cada uno se sirva a discrección la que más le convenga

Instrucciones de uso:

1) Se trata de listas totalmente subjetivas, ordenadas de más a menos según el nivel de impacto que me ha provocado cada referencia.

2) Desgloso los discos de 2020 en elepés, canciones y versiones para que las listas sean menos largas, pero obviamente los discos de la segunda y tercera lista (especialmente los de los primeros puestos) podrían estar en la primera y viceversa.

3) Todo lo que encontraréis en estas listas me parece absolutamente recomendable, aunque no sea necesariamente lo mejor de sus autores, sino simplemente lo que me ha acompañado durante los últimos doce mesos.

4) Espero que disfrutéis descubriendo o recuperando unas cuantas joyas.

    La virgen!!! Cualquier ser humano no biónico necesitaría una década para devorar todo ese menú….
    Enhorabuena por tu trabajo, tiempo, ganas y adicción.

    • Juan Carlos Belmonte

      Gracias, Alex. Pero de biónico nada, que las 8784 horas que tiene un año (bisiesto, ¡ojo!, jejé) pueden dar mucho de sí. Si tiráis de este hilo de Twitter
      https://twitter.com/EbonyWhite/status/1348995902434906113?s=19
      encontraréis el resto de la lista (películas, cómics…) y tres suculentas playlists en Spotify donde he escogido una canción de cada uno de los discos de la lista.
      Salud, camaradas routiers!
