See, I told you this was hard. After rereading the previous post and listening to some of 2009's best again, I simply can't leave out the following songs. I don't care where you insert them, but just put them in there somewhere (see, this is why we need a playoff system!). I seriously would not have been able to sleep tonight if I didn't throw these five songs out there.
Shall we say, Top 30? And I am making absolutely no promises this won't get stretched into, say, a top 35.
1. "Wavin' Flag," K'Naan
2. "Charlie Darwin," The Low Anthem
3. "You, Sailor," Erin McKeown
4. "The Walls Are Coming Down," Fanfarlo
5. "Blood Oranges," Foreign Born
