Best Songs of 2009

After seeing a few similar things around the net, I thought I would have some fun and make my ‘Best of 2009‘ playlist using iTunes smart playlist feature: Year = 2009 + Most Played.

I have tampered with the list a little – taking out songs that got a fair amount of plays due to guitar practice and the like plus adding songs that I knew I listened to on my iPod.  The list got a little out of control so I limited it to 15.

I wish I could post the MP3’s or put them all in one big file to share, but I am pretty sure I would get a slap on the wrist for that … so, no dice.  Here is the list though if you feel like recreating it and listening it through.  Would love to know what you think:

  1. Two Weeks Grizzly Bear
  2. Dog Days Are Over Florence And The Machine
  3. My Girls Animal Collective
  4. Island, IS Volcano Choir
  5. Anonanimal Andrew Bird
  6. Gifted (Feat, Kanye West, Santagold & Lykke Li) N.A.S.A
  7. Empire State of Mind (Feat. Alicia Keys) Jay-Z
  8. 1901 Phoenix
  9. The Reeling Passion Pit
  10. The Price Dappled Cities
  11. She’s A Genius JET
  12. Treat Me Like Your Mother The Dead Weather
  13. Silver Trembling Hands The Flaming Lips
  14. Kettering The Antlers
  15. Harry Patch (In Memory Of) Radiohead
