It's that time of year. Here is my annual list of the best songs of the year. If you would like to receive a free CD of all the tracks below, feel free to email me your address and I will burn a copy and mail it your way. Or, if you have an iPod and just want the tracks, I will be posting a zip file for download later this week. Let me know if you want me to email you the link to download the file.
Tomorrow, I will be posting my annual top ten albums of the year.
