The 20 best songs of the year (so far)
It's barely May, and it's already been a banner year for music. Album after solid album has come down the pike, and some stellar tracks have been spread far and wide via MP3 blogs. I'm pretty pleased with the collection I've amassed this year to date, and I wanted to take this opportunity to share some of my favorite songs of the year (so far) with you. Sure, the year isn't even half over, but the fact that we're just a third of the way in and I'm already busting to the gut with awesome songs and amazing albums has got to be a good sign. What will 2010 bring next? Be sure to follow along with my blog, where every Friday I post my top five music-related events/insights/acquisitions of the week.
Tracks aren't arranged in any particular order, though this Magnetic Fields song probably is my song of the year, at present.
