    Dic 27 2008, 21:08

    There are five days left in 2008, I'd say now is a fair time for me to present my top 10 songs of the year. A lot of thought went into this list (3 weeks of procrastinating and 5 minutes of compiling...the choices were mostly obvious) so I hope you enjoy some of the songs.

    Ok so Last.FM doesn't want to let me put my links in... so I'm gonna send you here:
