Eyeris' 2007 Music Lists: Favorite Songs of The Year

It's DECEMBER! Yes I know, so fast hor? Sigh...

Anyway, December is usually the month for Best-Of lists on EoE, and so I shall kick off 2007's lists with a list of my favorite songs from 2007.

Now, this year's list is a special one because thanks to the wonder of the internet and indie music blogs, I've actually managed to listen to a whole lot more music across different genres (almost 3000 songs, to be exact).

In fact, it's actually the first year I've actually kept track of the music I listen to, and made an effort to listen to every song I downl... errr... ACQUIRED.

Anyway, it's been a good year for music, IMHO. We've had great albums by Radiohead, The Arcade Fire, Wilco, Of Montreal etc; and some really memorable songs as well. Sure, we've also had awful songs and albums, but more on that later, ok? Without further ado, here are my favorite songs of 2007, in alphabetical order (as opposed to by order of preference):

PS: The ones in bold are my absolute FAVORITES for the year, meaning the ones I played the most often)
PSS: BTW, do bear in mind that my music preferences can be a little... er.. un-mainstreamly mainstream at times, so don't be surprise to NOT find any Britney Spears or James Blunt in it...)
