10 Years Of Music: Eyeris' Favorite Songs and Albums of the Decade!

First of all, here is a huge FU to all that to those who insist that it's not the end of the decade yet. It's been ten years of 200something and it's the first year of 201something, so there!

Anyway, I've been reading quite a few music magazines that have been listing their 'Best Of The Decade' lists lately. Some I agreed with, some I did not (No American Idiot in YOUR list, Uncut???!!???); but ultimately I realized that there are A LOT of good albums out there that I have not listened to, or did not get a chance to listen to.

What I DO know is there are lots of songs and albums in the last ten years that I have been listening to over and over again, obsessed over, cried over, sang along in concerts to, and had on repeat for days to end. These are MY personal favorite songs of the decade, based on how much I liked them and how much they mean to me, and me alone. So there!

And here, we, GO!
