Trying something new this year, I’ve made an attempt to make a top ten list of my favorite songs of the past year. To diversify things I limited the list to one song per artist. So, in alphabetical order by title with music videos or streaming mp3’s when available, here is my list:
- “The End is Near” – The Fiery Furnaces
- “Inspiration Information” – Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
- “1901” – Phoenix
- “People Got a Lot of Nerve” – Neko Case
- “Sabali” – Amadou & Mariam
- “Stillness is the Move” – The Dirty Projectors
- “The Strangers” – St. Vincent
- “The Rake’s Song” – The Decemberists
- “Two Weeks” – Grizzly Bear
- “Wavin’ Flag” – K’naan
What were your favorite songs of 2009?

Hello there. My name is Dr. Tom Bibey. As far as I know my blog is the only physician bluegrass fiction blog on wordpress. I hope to post favorite songs from around the world today and would love your input. I’m an old bluegrass guy, but by no means do I want the songs to be limited to that genre. Hope you’ll come visit.
