Favourite Songs of 2005

So we’ve reached the end of the year and I thought it was time to reflect on what a great year 2005 was for music. Some of these releases were from 2004, but I only heard them this year, So that counts as 2005 for me. I’m offering every track here so you can see what I’m talking about. Download them, make a compilation, share it. I have to say without the fantastic music blogs out there, There is a lot of music on this list I would never have heard (and subsequently bought the CDS of). Hats off to music lovers. And now, on with the list.
