That time of the year again. What are the best albums and songs of the year? These lists are blissfully pointless, but in some silly way I love making them. I didn’t spend ages on this song list though and I might have forgetten something important. It was still pretty difficult to choose just ten, but I know the album list will be ridicilously long, so I thought that I force myself to choose just ten songs this time around. Albums of the year countdown starts within a week or two.

10. Nopat: Yksinäisten tiet
9. Have Gun, Will Travel: Salad Days

1. Darren Hanlon: Scenes From a Separation
Only Darren can make such a heartbreaking moment sound so heartwarming. A beautiful well-written story that makes you both cry and smile. This is a live video of the song made by Shoot The Player.
