One of my usual end-of-year projects is to create a CD of my favorite songs which came out in the past year. This year, thanks to cool technology, I was able to upload mp3s of the songs to 8tracks.com and I can share them with you all!
Here's the full song list, in order on the CD:
- Post It 4:02 The Aluminum Group Little Happyness
- Horizon 4:23 Ashby The Best of Marina Records
- Birthday 3:30 The Bird And The Bee One Too Many Hearts
- The Motorbike Song 4:23 Justin Jude
- Beautiful Eyes 3:54 The Aluminum Group Little Happyness
- El Fusilado 2:32 Chumbawamba The Boy Bands Have Won
- Far Away 3:50 The Hampdens The Last Party
- Librarian 4:16 My Morning Jacket Evil Urges
- Je Suis Un Parisien 3:41 Jean-paul Elysee Pourtant
- Oxford Comma 3:16 Vampire Weekend Vampire Weekend

- Due to licensing restrictions, I could only include 2 songs by each artist. I'd only chosen 2 Winterpills songs, so they were safe, but I had to deselect something from the Aluminum Group; you can see their Beautiful Eyes video below.
- I can only listen to 30-second clips from each song in my mix -- hope they sound ok to you!
- If you like any of these songs or artists, please consider buying their CD!
