Not Your Typical Christmas List.......

A fellow friend/blogger and I were discussing lists the other day. I love lists. LOVE them. I make several every week. Just ask Zach. There is something so gratifying about getting organized and then crossing off a completed task. I get that from my mother. I think that is one reason my husband and I compliment each other so well. Hubby = creative, Wife = organizer/keeper of the schedule and all things that require appointments. We make a good team. I digress. I decided to blog a few lists. One about music and the other about things I would love to have and maybe someday will. You may find them mildly entertaining, at the very least I hope it gives you some new tunes to check out or rediscover.

My top 20 songs of 2008:

1. Tegan & Sara - Back In Your Head
2. Kings of Leon - Manhattan

5. Coldplay - 42
6. French Kicks - Abandon
7. Fleet Foxes - Winter White Hymnal
8. Vampire Weekend - Ottoman
9. Band of Horses - Our Swords
10. Tokyo Police Club - In A Cave
11. Elbow - Grounds For Divorce
12. Kate Nash - Merry Happy
13. Mates of State - The Re-arranger
14. MGMT - Time to Pretend

ReArranger was my #6 most played song, and Back in Your Head was my #7. Both get danced to in my living room. I am sure my neighbor hates me.(And I like how your faves made it onto my exclusive!)

I can vouch for the leather chair and ottoman - it's the bomb!
