The FlynnFiles holiday season tradition of "best of" lists continues! My long, slow divorce from the popular culture progressed this year. I'm less "with it," and perhaps so is my list. My apologies to songs unfairly omitted. Feel free to make your own list in the comments section. Here are the ten best songs (that I heard) this past year:
10. Cold December, Matt Costa
9. Fidelity, Regina Spektor
8. This River Is Wild, The Killers
7. Window in the Skies, U2
6. Turn Into, The Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs
5. Crazy, Gnarls Barkley
4. Vampyre, Pete Yorn
3. Man in a Purple Dress, The Who
2. When You Were Young, The Killers
1. Cheated Hearts, The Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs
Don't player hate. Player participate. Let's see your list.
My Top 10, 13 actually, and in no particular order.
“Ain’t Talkin’” by Bob Dylan

The Re-mixed version of “Within You Without You/Tomorrow Never Knows” by The Beatles (off of the new CD)
"Window in the Skies" by U2
As far as pop culture goes I am far less tuned in then you Dan so I am not even going to try and stretch a list to ten songs by taking 2 songs each from two albums like you did. All I will do is point out three favorite songs from what were the three best albums of 2006 that I purchased and most readers here may be unfamiliar with.
Mission of Burma, "Man In Decline" from The Obliterati.
Rainer Maria "Catastrophe Keeps Us Together" from album of the same name.
The Draft, "New Eyes Open" from In a Million Pieces
(The girlfriend adds that you are spot on w/ Gnarls Barkley)
As for movies I realized yesterday that I have not seen a single film that was released in 2006.
