8+

Sorry guys, no new 8+ this week. It's time for a bit of a break and a look back at what the past year has given us in 8+ land.

For a little over a year now EAR FARM's 8+ has offered a weekly look at songs longer than eight minutes. Each week, new song. The rules have always been very simple: there are no rules, or guidelines, other than that the song has to be over eight minutes in length and I won't allow live versions of songs to be featured. Beyond that, it's anything goes. And that's true in terms of genre as well. The songs have gone from current electronic music to '70s jazz, from early rap/electro to classic prog-rock. And that's only scratching the surface of the variety of the music that's been touched upon here.

The feature was conceived as a way for me to explore (and share) something I've always really loved musically (the long song) in a manner that offered complete posting freedom. Often times I've found myself telling stories about the selected song and how it's taken part in my life. Sometimes I've switched it up a bit and done wacky things like composing an original screenplay, free writing, or given a pop quiz. I've also opened things up and let some guests share their 8+s with you. No matter what, it's always been a real pleasure for me. Hopefully the same has been true for all of you. If you'd like to leave a comment here I'd be curious to know what your favorite post has been thus far in the 8+ series and also what your favorite song has been. Thanks for reading and I'll see you next week/year with an all new 8+.

my favorite 8+ is the one I haven't written yet. (jk jk jk)

I love all of them. especially the embarrassing ones.

Sean said...

My favourite, both for the story and the song, was Temptation.

dex said...

I agree with Sean. "Temptation" was kind of the start of 8+ as I came to love it. It's a really great weekly feature. Don't ever stop.

Oh, my favorite song thus far is “Haunted When the Minutes Drag".
