I'm late, but I wanted to go ahead and post favorites albums / songs of 2010.
I think 2009 was a good year for music, but then again, I think there is great music made and released every single year, you just have to be open to it. As far as lists go...they're completely subjective, everyone has favorites and mine is no better (or worse) than anyone else's. So here they are in no particular order, but where I thought they fit best in a mix-a-lot form.
Oh, yes Happy 9 days in for 2010. (No big deal, but that totally rhymed).
Looking forward to an amazing year of life along with beautiful music and all other things inbetween.
