And as long as I'm wasting the ENTIRE day...

With the end of the year coming up, I'm submitting my top ten albums of the year to three different publications as a freelance music shithead. Unfortunately, one of them also requires me to submit my top then SINGLES of the year, which leaves me a bit at sea. I don't listen to the radio, have almost no conception of what's popular and what isn't, and have only the vaguest idea of what's even been issued as a single. So what I've done in these situations is just list my favorite songs for the year without any regard to their popularity, status as singles, etc. This is what I came up with:

1. Andrew Bird, "Fake Palindromes"
2. The Decemberists, "16 Military Wives"
3. Kanye West, "Gold Digger"/K-Otix, "George Bush Doesn't Care About Black People" (tie)
4. Sufjan Stevens, "Chicago"
5. M.I.A., "Galang"
6. The New Pornographers, "Sing Me Spanish Techno"
7. Los Super Seven, "Heard It On The X"
8. Spoon, "I Turn My Camera On"
9. High on Fire, "The Face of Oblivion"
10. Danger Doom, "The Mask"

So, what are YOUR favorite songs of the year? Don't have to be singles, don't have to be popular, don't have to be obscure...just have to have come out in 2005. Tell me, kids: what are your heavy-rotation picks of the year?
