Minus The Flair - Songs Of 2009

list is objective

Firstly, gotta say that I'm only using one song from each band on the list. If I didn't, the first 6 places would be taken up by this band.
Anyway - Young Hearts Spark Fire just edges out in front of the rest because I think I fractured my collarbone or something listening to it.
"i don't wanna worry about dying. i just wanna worry about the sunshine girls"
2Manchester Orchestra
Mean Everything To Nothing

I Can Feel At Hot One - and this one made me more sentimental than I ever want to be.
"i haven't heard a thing you've said in at least a couple hundred days. what you say?"
3The Antlers

Stuck between two awesome tracks here - Kettering and Two.
Lets just leave them tied.
"i wish that i had known, in the first minute that we met, the unpayable debt that i owed you."
"two people talking inside your brain, two people believing that i'm the one to blame."
4 Burial & Four Tet
Moth/ Wolf Club

Moth - pure Burial, but better. If you can imagine it.
"um ts"
Red In Tooth & Claw

Gamma Ray Burst: Second Date. Infectious, intelligent, and flat out awesome post-hardcore that teaches a valuable lesson. Gamma rays are the way to a girl's heart. So many 'oh fucking yes' moments in this.
6Bon Iver
Blood Bank

Blood Bank - It's Justin Vernon singing about how he met you at the blood bank. What's not to love?
"that secret that we know, that we don't know how to tell"
7The XX

Heart Skips A Beat - Many would say that this song is the schmaltziest on the record, and they're probably right. But schmaltzy is my middle name, and the penetrating simplicity of Heart Skips A Beat can force this schmaltzy fucker to look a doe-eyed, heartbroken fool from its first beat to its last.
"please don't say we're done when i'm not finished, i could care so much more"
8 Rustie
Bad Science

Bad Science - Now, I have no idea what aquacrunkcore or whatever is, but if it's all as good as this, sign me up. Pro-per-ly sick. Although looking at the guy, you'd assume he just powerwalked out of Happy Shopper with his hood up and half the pick'n'mix stashed in his pockets. Devo's cousin knows how to make huge toons.
"wick a wack clunk clunk DOOSH DOOSH DOOSH"

If You're Wondering... - About as good and out-of-place as Pork and Beans was to the abysmal Red Album. No, that's unfair. If You're Wondering is twice as good as Pork and Beans.
"the rest of the summer was the best we ever had, we watched titanic and it didn't make us sad"
10 husband&wife
Dark Dark Woods

Haven't Got A Friend - OH SWEET GOD NEW REALMS OF SADNESS. Why do we listen to shit like this?
"i sound like everybody else when i say i haven't got a friend in the world"
