Best Songs Of 2009



The year in song. Well, there were many fine examples of song writing. Mr Krug dazzled us again, as did the Grizzly Bear boys. Then you had Animal Collective, stamping their feet all over the year, beginning in January with a bang and ending in December with a glorious nightcap. But a brief appearance from Destroyer was enough to remind us all just how incredibly gifted a songwriter Dan Bejar is. His band released a two song collection called "Bay Of Pigs". The title track winning its way to the top of my list for 2009. This thirteen minute epic was beyond scope in grandeur and ambition. Delirious, delectable and quite stunning. All set to a background of some ambient disco. Voila! "Bay Of Pigs" was my number one of 2009. Below I have included various clips of my other favourite tunes of 2009.
Please enjoy!

    Bravo Wayne,

    "Vampire"
    "Northern Lights" & Dan Deacon...hell yeah! Many of these others will be on mine too. Love the video format you went with, haven't seen a lot of these.

    Great list, Wayne. Love the Bay of Pigs choice, I hadn't seen that video I don't think. That's really great. It's in my top 20 no doubt.
