The 29 Best Remixes of 2009

I don’t know about you but 2009 was the year I fell in live with remixes. Starting TBE opened up my world to so many amazing reinterpretations of both great and not so great songs. Having always been more of a cover song guy this was new territory for me but I dove in headfirst and have been enjoying the ride so far. Good music is a personal thing and messing with great music is even more so. This is very much a subjective list and is based on nothing besides how much I love and respect the work done.

i want back the years that you took when i was young

♫ William Fitzsimmons – I Don’t Feel It Anymore (Song of the Sparrow) I don’t know much about William Fitzsimmons but I do know that he is marvelous. He has a marvelous voice, a marvelous beard, and a marvelous back story. How does someone looking so gruff sound like silk tissues filling with beautiful emotions? Try being raised by two blind parents in a house where musical instruments replaced visual stimuli. Yup, and in rural Pennsylvania, too. I don’t think any of us can even imagine the kind of alternate childhood that would be like, in so many ways. I can, however, imagine waking up to William singing “Good Morning” (below) to me at the foot of my bed. His beard bobbing softly against his chest as the smell of waffles fill my nose and magic fills my heart. 2008’s The Sparrow And The Crow is William’s third album and I have a feeling I need to track them all down. Seems perfect for the long winter of studying and self reflection ahead…
