I built and ran this website between 2000 and 2001, combining passion for popular music and programming. It was listed by MTV's now defunct MusicNewswire as one of the then nascent web's top twenty sources, alongside Billboard and VH1. The most exciting part of it — for a 13/14-year-old excited by new music — was receiving scores of pre-release CDs from record companies. The entire project was written entirely from scratch (frameworks and libraries were not the norm back then!) in PHP linking to a MySQL database, with HTML as well as a little CSS and JavaScript for the frontend; the code is available here.

Rod Stewart - The Story So Far
10 November 2002 | 11:16:40 GMT/UTC
Release: 1 January 1970 | 0:00:00 (Warner Brothers)

'The Story So Far'This is supposedly the "definitive" best of Rod Stewart. Thirty-four tracks split over two discs — A Night Out and A Night In — feature on Rod's Story So Far.

At first glance you see a cheesy cover with the "the very best of" strewned over the front. It seems the same as every other 'best of'.

However, as careers in music go, Rod Stewart has had a good one. The album is not in any sort of chronological order but is split into two sections: A Night Out features Rod's more up-beat numbers such as Maggie May, Do You Think I'm Sexy and Stay With Me; A Night In features the softer side of Rod with tracks such as Sailing.
