Dammit, I've been gone for a long time. Made countless mixes since I've been away from AOTM but just never got around to posting them, or even visiting the site to enjoy the usual array of brilliant entries from other posters. I hate when I get out of the habit of doing things I genuinely enjoy, but it happens to me so often it must be a personality defect. Anyway while I try to get re-acquainted with this great site, instead of trying to dig through my mixes and post them all, I'll just be like everyone else and post a list of my favorite songs from 2007. In past years I've done a combination of songs released in that year and older ones I merely discovered in that year, and I could easily do the same again here, since I've been plumbing music history recent and bygone more than ever lately, but I've also managed to keep abreast of the year's specific offerings with a sharper eye than ever before, so I feel I'm at least basically worthy of contributing a favorites list. Oh, how weakly I contrive reasons to do this...I just want to, okay? I love music and there was so much of it that was fantastic, awesome, beautiful in 2007, and after sifting through hundreds, even thousands of tunes I listened to from January to right now, here's what I think are the top-drawer masterpieces. Needless to say my life is exponentially richer with these tracks now a part of it. Good luck to everyone in 2008 :)

Great round up, I've got my usual Eternity conflict over a few choices but my finger would rarely be called upon for skip duties. Fave from the Apples in Stereo album starts side 2. Happy new year to you and the missus Mike.

Just wanting to is excuse enuff, isn't it? :) Glad to see Resurrection Fern representing I&W. Destined to be the standout track of the decade IMHO. Some others I haven't heard yet - I'd better get busy.

You're right, we have been listening to alot of the same stuff in the last 12 months. Digging the Loudon, Apples, Shins, Of Montreal, Banhart and Rilo Kiley especially.
