Top 25 2009

Sure, sure it’s March, but it’s time to announce my Top 25 most listened to songs of 2009. I got my first iPod in March, so March – March is my musical year. My friend Vodo thinks you can tell a lot about a person by taking a gander at their Top 25. I will leave the prognosticating to you.

  • Kick Drum Heart, The Avett Brothers
  • Doctor My Eyes, Jackson Browne
  • Smooth Criminal, Michael Jackson (I take no blame for this, it’s all The Tibbles. Michael Jackson’s been dead since June and they’re still obsessed with the music)
  • My Favourite Chords, The Weakerthans
  • People Got A Lotta Nerve, Neko Case
  • I’d Really Love To See You Tonight, England Dan & John Ford Coley (In my defense, I think this is played in one of my favorite shows, Time-Life Power Ballads Infomercial, or it might be Time-Life Songs of Love Infomercial)
  • Poetry Of The Deed, Frank Turner
  • Somebody’s Baby, Jackson Browne
  • Laid, James
  • Ill With Want, The Avett Brothers
  • Furr Blitzen, Trapper
  • Dreamtime, Darryl Hall
  • All the Young Dudes, Mott The Hoople
  • Fa La Freezing, My First Earthquake (I think at least 8 of these listens happened on Musical Night 09)
  • Song for Myla Goldberg, The Decemberists (I cannot listen to this song just once. It has to be at least two times in a row)
  • Live Fast Die Old, Frank Turner
  • Dan’s Song, Frank Turner
  • A New England, Jonah Matranga & Frank Turner
  • Polyester Bride, Liz Phair
  • Graceland, Paul Simon
  • Whatever Makes You Happy, Paul Westerberg
  • Against All Odds, The Postal Service
  • Home, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
  • Try This At Home, Frank Turner
  • Isabel, Frank Turner

    “Dreamtime,” ha! I’m always embarrassed at how often “Method of Modern Love” comes up on my iPod, while others are in the car…

    Dreamtime is another song that when it comes on I have to listen to it a few times in a row. I love that song!

    I also like ‘Method’ too, because spelling songs rule.

    Here we are at the end of the day, and what just shuffled up? “Dreamtime.” Seriously. 18,000 songs on here….

    I’ve used my powers of telekinesis to make that happen.
