Pitchfork's Top 100 Songs of 2009



I won't bother to criticise the list, as lists are always going to be different and songs will always be missing. My band of the year was probably The Felice Brothers and they got no mention. Oh well. So here it is anyway, as if you're like me, then you'll love lists regardless of your opinion of it. Plus, I know I for one haven't listened to every track on this list. Have you?

Listen to them on Spotify! (Those that are available!)
