Well, lookie here. What you do know? It's the return of Heavy Rotation. Longtime readers of Backbeat will remember this feature as one in which we shared our weekly listening habits in hopes of giving you some insight into our individual sensibilities. It's been dormant for a while, but, starting today, it's back. As you'll see from our picks, our musical tastes continue to be vastly different. Below you'll find a mix of old and new tunes, imports and exports.
