Songs I liked in 2007

Consider this just a sampling, rather than Jim's 2007 Best Of.

Midlake, "Young Bride," Trials of Van Occupanther (OK, the album this comes from was released in 2006, but I only heard it recently)

Midlake, "Bandits," Trials of Van Occupanther

The newly renamed Silver Seas, formerly The Bees (U.S.), "The Country Life," High Society

The Brother Kite, "Not the Only One," Waiting for the Time to be Right

Regina Spektor, "Better," Begin to Hope

Sissy Wish, "Float"

Rilo Kiley, "Silver Lining," Under the Blacklight

Let's Go Sailing, "Sideways," The Chaos in Order

Feist, "1,2,3,4," The Reminder

Swan Dive, "Tender Love," Until

Rhianna, "Shut Up and Drive." My guilty-pleasure, Top 40, bubble-gum fave. Yes, I'm 45 years old, but that is catchy as all hell. Don't let this spoil my indie cred.

What, no Christopher Cross?

No. He's caught between the moon and New York City.

That's funny -- I was watching the same TBK vid on YouTube over the weekend. Nice call on Midlake, btw -- "Bandits" is my favorite song off that album.

I've been a little obsessed with that Midlake album of late. And "Bandits" is my favorite track, too.
