100 Songs from 2009!

Like the last couple of years, I’ve put together my favourite songs from the year. Unlike previous years, more than half of these haven’t been on the podcast, so there will be some cool things I’ve not shared yet. I haven’t listened to as much new music this year as previously, so that may effect the results somehow. For now they are hosted on sendspace. A torrent may follow. If you have any distribution or content questions, comments or concerns, do voice them! And read on for the tracklist…

    Great list! You’ve got many of my favourites listed here, although I can’t believe you didn’t pick MY GIRLS by Animal Collective! :) Song of the year!

    I went with Bluish in the end because it was my initial favourite from the album and had it on my radio playlist which is what i started with.. everyone else has picked My Girls anyway! (with good enough reason, too). Hope to see a list from you sometime!
