2010 in our ears


In lieu of an attempt at a year-end list using my critic’s voice, here’s what we actually listened to at the Ford/Asplund house, based on iTunes play counts with a little shuffling to account for songs I listened to at work.  I used scrobbling for a few years – and might go back again – but stopped this year except to use the radio features.  Anyway, I split this year’s list into two discs, one for the pop/rock songs and one for the longer stuff like Brock Van Wey.  Click the links for zipped files.
