Rewind: 2007 Top Songs in Review

In 2007 the list was again 50 songs, but I added a lazy collection of the "next 50". Also, the list had pictures and stuff.

#1 then: "Mama, Won't You Keep Those Castles in the Air and Burning?" by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. The follow up to their debut was pretty unloved but this is a fantastic song with a rambling, steam-of-consciousness final two minutes.

#1 now: "Snow in Berlin" by Zookeeper (#3 at the time). A loose, rolling, party of a song that would play great to a crowded Austin bar. Never fails to make me smile.

How did I miss...?: "Sycamore" by Bill Callahan, "While You Were Sleeping" by Elvis Perkins, "Harder Than You Think" by Public Enemy, "Tokyo Moon" by Windmill.
