Nerds Attack! Music industry favourites of 2017 (Top 5)

3952

Siamo alla seconda parte della nostra adunata referendaria. Dopo le scelte dello staff di Nerds Attack! è il turno degli “addetti ai lavori” (da quando è nato l’uomo preferiamo etichettarli amorevolmente così perchè scrivere “musicians, music executives, journalists and other figures in the music industry” ci è sempre sembrato un pochino troppo lungo…) ad aprire la pista al risultato finale di prossima pubblicazione comprensivo anche dei voti dei lettori (un altro record di meravigliosa partecipazione). Poche le righe a contorno di queste imprevedibili, curiose, attente cinquine, che doverosamente devono aprirsi con i ringraziamenti di cuore a tutti gli amici e colleghi che hanno voluto anche quest’anno mettersi in gioco. Perchè di un divertente giochino in fondo si tratta che però risulta sempre assai utile per scoprire tutta quella “musica” che magari abbiamo colpevolmente o inconsapevolmente dimenticato. Un grazie speciale alle preziose guest straniere, alle new entry, ai ritorni, ai puntuali abitudinari che in tempi stretti hanno inviato le liste richieste, a quelli che le manderanno un po’ in ritardo, e un GRAZIE enorme ai nostri Nick Matteucci e Dante Natale per la determinante collaborazione. Il pensiero corre anche a tutti gli altri interpellati a formulare una Top 5, grazie lo stesso, sarà per il prossimo anno (forse). Buona lettura.
