I am happy

Whenever something from In Our Gun by Gomez pops up on the iPod.
I think the song should have come out in the year in which your referencing... you shouldn't disregard an entire year of new music because you were slow to the punch on the White Stripes... that sounded more bitter than I meant it.

Fav songs of the year

I imagine this will change, but off the top of my head....

Time to Pretend -- MGMT
Skinny Love -- Bon Iver
Oxford Comma -- Vampire Weekend
House of Cards -- Radiohead

What's new in my Queue.

Kanye West - Flashing Lights
Atmosphere - You
The Warmth of the Sun - The Beach Boys
Nick Drake Tape - Clem Snide
Denton Tx - Damian Jurado

Point of Order

I've always wondered this: Does a "favorite song of year XXXX" have to have been released in that year, or is it the year you were first exposed to it?

The music snob in me says "Dude, if you didn't hear it when it came out you are so loserrrrrr." The pragmatist in me replies "Shut up, poser."

So.....the question has been posed. What say you?
