i did a little quasi-scientific research the other day to determine my favorite song of 2007. The research consisted of sorting my songs by play count on my itunes and ipod. so, here are some of the tops:
(fyi, i'm linking to myspace so you can enjoy some of these fantastic artists' sweet sweet tunes.)
plasticities, andrew bird
lake shore drive, the innocence mission
legs of bees, fruit bats
fake empire, the national
cast a hook, laura veirs. as you can see, there is a video with NARWHALS in it. of course it's one of my favorite songs of the year!
i feel it all, feist
myriad harbor, the new pornographers
empty hearts, josh ritter
two, ryan adams
every song from caitlin cary's "begonias" since i tend to listen to it obsessively when i make art or clean or whatever.
I also think i should add that "can you please crawl out your window," the hold steady and "ring them bells," sufjan stevens, both from the i'm not there soundtrack , probably deserve to be on this list. i'm way into both of these songs right now but since they were only added about a month ago the scientific itunes thing is kinda misleading.
and my number one most played song of this year? flossin', mike jones.
i like to listen to it on repeat at work. for like, hours at a time, no joke. i can't say i can really explain this. but it probably has something to do with my little brother.
