Re: List of songs to be added to AM 2017

Bang Jan, I noticed that there's one Miles Davis track that shows up twice in the playlist. Because both On the Corner and New York Girl, which are part of the same melody, aren't available as separate tracks on Spotify. That's weird. I wonder if they should maybe be combined into one entry on AM. ...

Thank you so much Henrik! I deeply appreciate everything you do for us music fans. Justice Vs. Simian | Never be alone By the way, is this supposed to be Simian's original "Never Be Alone" or is it a duplicate of "We Are Your Friends"? Or is it something else I don't know about?

I particularly like the feeling of being able to enjoy a song or album that I did not like or cared about before. I can definitely think of a bunch of examples that work the other way around, but I will say that the first example that comes to mind is "New Slang" by the Shins. Same for me!
