mix tape monday: top 50 edition

So, this is a little different…every year since 2004, I’ve thrown together a compilation of my 50 favorite songs from the year. They don’t have to have been released in that year; I just have to have listened to them a lot and liked them and found them worthy of sharing with other people. If you’re interested in getting a copy, drop me a note in the comments. Feel free to ridicule or praise anything on here.
