Tom Mullen, director, digital marketing at Legacy Recordings/Sony Music, has taken the Executive Playlist to a whole other level--albeit a completist Emo level. Here, with 312 songs spanning 19 hours and 43 minutes of angsty melodicism ranging from Texas is the Reason to Taking Back Sunday to Pinback and beyond, this intense compilation culled from his WashedUpEmo.com blog will leave you exhilarated and perhaps by its end emotionally spent.
Mullen handles digital marketing at Legacy Recordings / Sony Music. Artists he currently works with include Johnny Cash, Miles Davis, Cyndi Lauper, Willie Nelson and Nas. Previously, Tom worked at EMI Music in the digital department, was product manager/marketing at indies Vagrant Records and Equal Vision Records, digital marketing at Cornerstone/The Fader and started out at TVT Records in the radio department. Here's his explanation of his playlist.
