the Top 50 Songs of 2006

So here it is, the top 50 Songs of 2006. I try my absolute hardest to not include more than one song by a band in it because after the top 10-15, the rankings are mostly arbitrary and based on feel. There are so many amazing songs, it's practically impossible to actually rank them. Still, Midlake and Say Anything both have two appearances and I'm happy with it. The top 3 could also be interchanged at any given time and still ring true. I'm not going to go into depth describing these songs simply because they've all made appearances in this very blog over the last year and I don't want to get redundant. In my opinion, 2006 was the best year for new music that I can remember and judging by what I've heard of upcoming 2007 releases (the Shins, Of Montreal, etc), next year may be even better.
