It was no surprise to me, that the list entries managed to attract more people onto the site. Everybody loves list wether they are about the 10 best songs or the 100 best Friends quotes, see Digg.com and its full with those. So, having no intention to write and research about anything, and having nothing really interesting to share, I will rely to share this list I had kept for a while and which I actually fixed today.

10. Mando Diao - Dance With Somebody
When it comes to fun, dancefloor, radio friendly songs, this takes the cake for 2009.
9. White Lies - To Lose My Life
Little to offer in sound. Take it as good new Interpol song.
8. Morrissey - I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris
I currently have Moz's Years of Refusal, haven't heard it, but doubt anything inside will beat this.
7. Animal Collective - Brother Sport
They say the Collective went pop on MPP. Try matching that in weirdness.
6. Alice in Chains - Check My Brain
Have I said how great AiC comeback was?
5. Dinosaur Jr. - I Want You to Know
Good they're around again, and in full-shape.
4. Pearl Jam - Just Breathe
I also like that after so many years Pearl Jam are still around. Their new album for sure contained more rocking songs, but did managed to poke a spot on my heart.
5. Phoenix - 1901
One of the most blogged artists of the year. For good reason, both this and listzomania are extremely catchy.
2. The Antlers - Two
Two is the highlight from a very sentimental album, Two is the summary if not the climax of the album.
1. Grizzly Bear - Two Weeks
And for the song of the year, I have to give it to this great accomplishment from Grizzly Bear, from an album I found boring and overrated though haven't gave it another try.
