  • My top 101 songs from 2007!

    Gen 8 2008, 3:32

    I’m running a bit late with my top albums of 2007 podcast, I know. Mostly because I’m being OCD about it and cramming in relistenings to as many albums as I can.. new and old and oft-heard already… you know, just so I can be sure of my rankings. POINTLESSS. BUT! When it’s finished, you everyone’s gonna get their mind shot off/blown/kaboodled. Well as long as they listen to it (with the right combination of drugs).


    in the meantime, here is, sans any sort of commentary, my 101 favourite songs of 2007, unordered, 1 per artist.
