Sorry for the (very) late reply on this, but I've been privately curating music playlists for a few years now. Pretty much any enjoyable or awesome tune I hear gets put into these playlists so I can remind myself that whatever happened in a particular year, I still found some great music regardless. They've also got songlists included in case anything gets deleted off YouTube, which is why each playlist has around 100-odd songs (since the songlist eventually fills up the character limit).
Any playlist with the divine comedy gets a pass in my book.
They are a bloody good band! Fun fact: they were responsible for the music in British sitcom Father Ted, with the theme tune eventually being reworked into Songs of Love from the Casanova album (which I'd rank among my favourite songs by the band, alongside Lucy, Life on Earth, A Woman of the World and Sunrise). Perhaps their most memorable contribution was the song for the Eurovision episode, My Lovely Horse.
As an aside, I might need to update my 2018 YT playlists, since I updated my Spotify equivalent far more often (which is why the YT lists are much shorter than 2017 and 19). Thanks for the reminder!

Just finished first drafts of another set of post-punk and new wave focused playlists, this time covering the 2000s! 2000-2004: 2005-2009:
"Hardboiled" (less pop, more experimental/challenging/abrasive/heavy) versions: 2000-2004 : 2005-2009:
As before the procedure was to start with what I knew and learned from the previous ones, then check blogs, besteveralbums lists, youtube playlists and finally each year for mentions on this forum - it should be a pretty comprehensive selection (as far as bands with english vocals go anyway!) but I'll probably revisit it and add more later.

Cyberpunk 1997 Playlists:
The idea for these playlists was a radio-style OST for a game like Cyberpunk 2077 if it was made in 1997, with unlimited licensing opportunities. It spans music from 1959-1999 (I gave myself a bit of leeway here), and it was inspired by a PS1 demake proof of concept video I saw recently.
I wanted to include some more game and movie OST music but alas it's not on spotify. Perhaps it's for the best though considering how long these ended up.
