My Favorite Songs of 2009

It's finally here (not that you've really been waiting): my list of my favorite songs of 2009! I've done a sizable amount of downloading and CD buying this year, and now I get to make that all worthwhile. A lot of good stuff has been released in the past twelve months, which means it was tough to narrow down a list of my favorite songs. So I'm gonna list my top 45 of the year. The songs cover a decent array of music, from dance to indie rock to...oh wait. That's about it. What can I say? My favorite songs are the ones that are catchy and to the point. I may love Monoliths & Dimensions, but none of those songs are exactly good singles. Anyhow, here's the list. (I'm only posting links for the top 10 because those are the most important ones. And I'm lazy.)
