Do you ever go way back in your music collection and listen to songs that you haven’t heard in years? That’s what happened to me this year after I resorted my hard drive and had to re-rate all of my iTunes music. I’m still not quite done (it’s a slow process) but I’ve really enjoyed finding hidden gems that I had forgotten about.
That said, I think I was able to figure out my favorite songs that I heard for the first time this year. Thanks to all of you who recommended this music, especially Erin H, as a bunch of these songs came from her excellent taste. If you have any other songs from these artists that you’d recommend, let me know.
