I've put together my annual mix of my favorite songs from the last year (2007, 2006, 2005 can be found here). It's an imperfect process. I try to get a group of songs together that make a good mix and that I like a lot. I only did one song from each album so there may be a song that's my second favorite song of the year but it didn't make the cut because my first favorite song is on the same album.
I feel like there aren't many new artists on my mix this year or rather artists making their first appearance on one of my yearly compilations. I'm not sure if that's due to the fact that I've been very busy (new baby, renovating old building, starting a business) or if I've missed some good stuff that came out. I hate when I discover music that I love only to find out that it came out in the previous year and I just missed it. If you want a copy let me know. I have a distribution list and I'm only about 1/3 of the way through printing them up and sending them out.
