It’s the season to be … list compiling? I presume this is the only methodological way I can summarise musical bits & pieces of 2007, so here is the first of many lists. Yep, these are 20 songs that have made my year rather great.

    Nice list there Ro. Don’t think I’ll do songs. Choosing the albums is hard enough!

    heart of hearts was such a good song! i’m obviously a little out of touch with most of the other songs being pretty much unknown to me! oops!

    Geoff- that banner has been there for ages now, so it kinda needs an update.

    James – Choosing albums was a very difficult decision as well.

    Lucky – Thats why Ro is here.
