2009: Best Of
December 22nd, 2009

Picking a manageable list of the Best songs from the past year is never an easy task. I usually do a good bit of last.fm referencing to see what I listened to the most and cross that with a few smart playlists in iTunes to narrow down what I found myself drawn to the most. That being said, there are always oversights - so it's a guarantee that there are songs that I absolutely loved from the past year that didn't make the cut. On the whole, this is a good representation of what I was listening to and what stuck with me.

It should also be noted that a Best Of mix, for me, does not mean that every song included has to have been released in 2009, it just means the music has to be new to me during that time. Limiting myself to 2009 releases only is not only an inaccurate take on what I was listening to but it also squashes the desire to investigate older tunes!

Long story short, here are a load of pics from my last year of listening and I hope you enjoy it - assuming you haven't heard it all already.
