[semi-simulblogged on my Tumblr…]

I considered skipping out on a Favorite Songs of the Year list this year, just because of the moving and everything, but I’ve done it every year since I was twelve (at least) and decided not to stop now.  I listened to a lot less new music than usual this year, and honestly the state of pop was rather bleak for a while there.  (There was a minute this spring when Katy Perry, Avril Levigne and Ke$ha [above] actually had three of the best songs on the radio!)

I did manage to come up with 56 songs that I liked, though, and starting tomorrow morning I’ll be announcing them, eight per day.  [Spoiler: Ke$ha didn’t make the final cut.]  I’m posting the songs on my Tumblr during the day, just because, and each night I’ll do a wrap-up here.  This page will be the master list, and will link to individual postings.  Probably this makes it all more complicated than it needs to be, but whatever.
