Favorite Songs
(as discovered in 2010)

This year I really focused on my vinyl collection, so I have a fairly fragmented collection of favorite songs this time around. Most of it is set in the 1970's, maybe early 1980's. I found a lot of great "world" music and reggae, too. I probably listen 90% of the time now to good / bad stuff I found in the 50¢ bin at Half Price Books. These are my favorites discoveries from all media types this year, though.

"I Wish" (Skee-Lo)
"M.E." (Gary Numan)
"Papua" (China Crisis)
"Mister Chin" (Yellowman)
"Kodachrome" (Paul Simon)
All Day (Girl Talk, album)
"Young Man" (Brigadier Jerry)
"Deadline" (Blue Oyster Cult)
"Untold Stories" (Buju Banton)
"Me & My Arrow" (Harry Nilsson)
"Tala Rasa Ranga" (Ravi Shankar)
