Ah, so good to see The National getting all the love that they deserve. It's amazing how every fan has a different choice for best song from High Violet.

Excellent list!!!! A lot of these songs and albums are on constant rotation in my ipod too. For me it's a toss up between The National, Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene. Can't decide which I like better. Nice to see Metric making your list too.
