Lists of Everything

Fallen Angel

I could have tried to be clever and called this post “Listomania” to reference Phoenix, but I’m not that much of a douchebag. Instead, I’m just presenting to you the 100% scientifically accurate lists of the Top 101 Songs of the Decade, the Top 104.1 Songs of 2009 (in honor of the late WBCN), and the Top 10 Albums of 2009. Also, check out my 2009 in Review note on Facebook here.

If you don’t like it, sit and wait for Pax’s lists that are TBA.
