Thank you, thank you everyone! I appreciate that you've taken the time to stop by and give your comments. With one season down, now it's time for part 2, the SPRING, which tends to be my favorite season of the year.
One of the most controversial videos and most chill songs of the year. My favorite from Erykah in years.
I didn't get into the full album, but this great single from New ****os sure brightened my spring.
Unlike last time, the album as a whole didn't really do it for me, but I played this one a number of times.
Bonus track from the Slash album; also features Alice Cooper and friends. Who would've thought?
I'm not sure there was any added value of having Ludacris on a version of this track, but the song's nice.
The most fiery, controversial video of the year. Naturally, this non-threatening M.I.A. photo to go with it.
This band has like 500 people in it. Forgiveness Rock Record was too much for me, but I liked this track.
It's Blur, in 2010! I know!! This wonderful little song was released for the Record Store Day in April.
American Slang felt like The '59 Sound Pt. 2, but I guess you can't really argue with that. Solid group here.
STP returned this year with a lackluster album but pretty nice lead single. I kept playing this one.
No time for haters, Rivers Cuomo looked like he had a lot of fun doing this. B.O.B. worked it out really well.
Hey, remember M2M? Yeah, me neither. Marit Larsen was one of those M's, and this is her own thing.
Such a pleasant little band with such a pleasant little tune. I dare you, watch the video and try not to smile.
Crystal Castles is too many blips and bleeps and not enough music for me, but I did like this track.
Hilarious video and mindblowing electronic funk song from a band with one of the best names I've heard.
Two Suns made my top 40 albums of 2009, but I really fell in love with the song "Daniel" this spring.
Kinda chill, haunting, and every bit strange, you can't go wrong with this memorable track from The XX.
Deftones are alive and kickin', and if you didn't believe it, just listen to this powerhouse of a song.
B-side to "The Nights Are Cold" single; a decidedly improved arrangement of an already great track.
From last year's great Music for Men, it's one of the most fun videos and songs you'll find anywhere.
If you're looking for a more chilling song that makes you think a bit, look no further than this one.
Vita Chambers sure makes catchy pop. I think she's also like 15. Not quite Willow Smith, but good god.
For once, Eminem returned with a legit single, not a pop culture parody. It worked well for him, too!
Allison Moorer is a little bit country, a little bit folk, a little bit pop, and just the right combination for me.
"What a little ****!" The teaser that started it all. We'll be seeing more of Sky throughout the seasons.
Jay-Z and Mr. Hudson came to SNL and dedicated "Young Forever" to Betty White. It was beautiful.
In part 3, the 90-degree days when the sun was out until 9:30. Yes, it's summer, and it's next.
BLACK SHUCK black shuck BLACK SHUCK that dog don't give a f**k
Badu. New ****os, Band of Horses, BSS, Blur, Bat for Lashes, xx, Em, Moorer, Hov. All great! And a lot of the songs I didn't put are ones I just didn't hear.
See, just typing up all those names, and there's so much variety between them. Where else will you be able to find Alisson Moorer right between Eminem and That Little ****. YOUR YEAR-END CONTINUES TO WIN.
