Top 100 Songs of '09: 100-71

I'm back with more of my incessant list making. With the year and decade coming to and end, it's fun to look back on what we've just gone through and for mine, there's no better way to do that than to look at the soundtrack. 2009 was a very good year for music in my eyes, both for established acts that further solidified themselves upon the scene and for new ones who will have my eye going forward.

Today I bring you my first instalment of my favorite songs of '09. In doing so I also would like to take a moment to once again mention how much I enjoy the work of Paramore and their head songstress Hayley Williams. I have two different Paramore tracks on my year end list as well as one solo go from young miss Hayley. They are already one of my favorite bands of this decade and I am hoping for more and more from them in the ten years to come.
