HOBBY BOX'S TOP SINGLES OF 2006

For the first time since I started making year-end music list, I was compelled this year to rank my favorite songs of the last 12 months all the way to 50. I think it's because 2006 was my first full year of mp3 hunting and video clip scrounging for this blog. It's not only made me more fully appreciate the beauty of a great single, but it's also just made it easier to figure which tracks are the actual singles. Heck, three or four years ago, who had any clue which songs off all the best indie albums were official singles?
