5 years of Club Cortez: Greatest Hits
How do you go about compiling greatest hits from 750+ posts? Comb trough them and see what sticks. The things that stuck have two things in common: they have stood the test of time (not forgotten) and repeated listening (not bored). Of course, this is a personal list and therefore subjective as can be. Feel i’ve missed something? Let me know! Same goes for titles that aren’t available anymore. Here we go:
