TOP 50 SONGS OF 2007

I've actually had this list worked out since just after Thanksgiving, but due to a lack of time, an intermittent internet connection and plain old laziness, I'm just posting this now. I guess it's not surprising since I've barely updated Hobby Box at all over the last few months. There really is nothing like a year-end list to get me to finally update this site.

Most of these songs were officially released as singles. A handful of the selections were so heavily blogged about that they might as well have been. I think 2007 was pretty fantastic year for music. It was a pain to narrow this list down to 50. And I am, by the way, still working on the albums list.
