It’s hard to be reciprocating

Some friends of mine are circulating their top 10 albums of 2007 lists, which frankly I find far more interesting than the countless lists I’ve read over on stereogum (and elsewhere). I may or may not come up with my own, but since I bought my iPod in January, it’s easy to list the 25 songs I listened to most in 2007. (And really, you can pick out at least a few of my favorite albums this way.)

    PS the list on my work computer is totally different. And yes, I am commenting on my own blog.

  2. Such a pretty new blog! And I love your list of songs. The album I’ve listened to most this year was John Mayer’s “Continuum”, although it wasn’t released in 2007.
