Poll Results: Your Favorite Song Of '09

Hey there. It's time to announce the winner of Il Buono's Readers Choice: Favorite Song of 2009! All formalities aside, the winner (unsurprisingly and fittingly) was Dirty Projectors' "Stillness Is The Move." Released this past spring, "Stillness Is The Move" has been my and most of your favorite song of '09 since it came out. The twisted King Sunny guitar lick, the metallic R&B beat, and the ridiculous Amber Coffman vocal runs make for a pretty classic song, and I'm glad you chose it (with 42% of the vote) as your favorite song of the year.

Frequent list-topper "My Girls" tied with Bat For Lashes' "Daniel", Animal Collective's "What Would I Want? Sky", and Dirty Projectors' "Two Doves" for second place, with 14% of the votes. "Two Weeks" by Grizzly Bear failed to receive any votes. Too bad.

Well, it's that time. I now want to know your favorite album of 2009. Before the year even started, most people thought they had their top three set: Merriweather Post Pavilion, Veckatimest, and Bitte Orca (in some order). While all three of those are indeed great, there were many '09 releases on par with those. But those are still your options for this week's poll. You can, of course, always choose "other."
