K’s Top 10 Singles of 2009

Posted December 24th, 2009 by k

As a general rule, my list of favorite singles of the year doesn’t include any tracks that are included within my Top 10 Albums of the Year list. This prevents the obvious potential overlap of the lists. These tracks were released in 2009 and listened to innumerable times at some point over the past 12 months, often on repeat. I’ve probably forgotten some amazing songs from this year, but these are the ones that stood out in my mind, and therefore made it on to this list. Feel free to list some of your favorites from the year that was 2009.
