Continuing a series I more or less started in 2008 (here’s my 15 favorites from last year), I’ll be counting down the rest of the year and into 2010 with my list. (Best to start it now, because the order keeps changing, and many other songs — “Laura” by Girls, Parov Stelar’s “Blind Alley”, Eulogies’ “Is There Anyone Here?”, Thom Yorke’s “All for the Best”, “Surprise Hotel” by Fool’s Gold, “What About Us?” by Mr. Lif, Atlas Sound’s “Walkabout” — keep threatening to crack the top 15, and I’ll never get this finished.)
Unlike last year, only six of the songs on the list were actually released in 2009. I’m sure no one would object.
We’ll start with what might be called a postscript.
