My favorite songs of 2010 (so far) Pt. 2

Here is the second installment of a two-part series containing my favorite songs of 2010 (so far). This is not a best of list, simply because there are plenty of songs I have not heard this year. These are the songs that have grabbed my interest, leading me to listen to them over and over. Hopefully, you will find something to like on the list, as well. PS: I plan on writing a revised list at year’s end.

Cajun Tomato’s Favorite Songs of ’09

Hi there. Outside my door, a firefight is happening. Or at least it sounds like Fallujah. Not sure if the neighborhood kids are killing each other or just letting off some steam. Either way, sounds like they’re having a blast. The New Year will be here in five hours. Crazy to think. In honor of the New Year, I decided to rank my favorite songs of the year. 2009 was loaded with invigorating music. My goal was to pick my 20 favorite songs. This is not a “best of” list. REPEAT: This is not a “best of” list. Just songs — some mainstream, some obscure — that pleased my eardrums and captured my attention. Hope you enjoy!
