[MILESTONE] The Burning Ear’s 1000th post! A Celebration Mix!

Wow. Another mind-bending milestone in the TBE saga. 1000 is a big number but in the grand scheme of things it will only be the tip of the iceberg. Running this site for the past 28 months has been an honor and privilege and we all look forward to dropping more sweet jams for a long time to come. For now lets celebrate with a little mixtape I put together below. There is a theme in there somewhere…

There are some potential changes to the site underway but until I get a breather from work I won’t be able to think about any of that. I can say that today I will be retiring my tradition of post titles. There were a thing I started waaay back when and although they are sometimes fun I feel like a more straightforward title may be smoother for everyone involved. The Internet is confusing enough without me trying to “clever” with my post titles. Try to hold back the tears, I know. Anyway, to the music!

♫ Portugal The Man – 1000 Years

♫ Third Eye Blind – 1000 Julys

♫ The Hood Internet – 1000 Times Right Round (Flo Rida vs MSTRKRFT)

♫ Numbers Game – Thousand Severed Heads (demo)

♫ Good Shoes – 1000 Miles An Hour

♫ Kings Go Forth – 1000 Songs

♫ Brandtson – A Thousand Years

♫ Jason Mraz – 1000 Things (Live at Java Joes)

♫ The Tallest man on Earth – Thousand Ways

♫ Beck – 1000BPM

♫ Matt & Kim – Grand

♫ Fujiya & Miyagi – Hundreds & Thousands

    I have been following your blog for over a year now and I can honestly say you have been a huge influence on the music I listen to in my day to day life. You’ve done more then influence my Itunes though, The Burning Ear is a huge inspiration behind the creation of my very own music blog. You have showed how dedication, consistency, and great taste in music can take you places in this world and I look forward to the  years to come and what that holds for the future of TBE. Congrats on the milestone Brandon.
