Au Revoir, 2010: The Songs!

Because it's December

While my EP and 7" lists are on the backburner—as they are proving to be rather difficult to finalize—I decided I would attempt to get everything together for my super-bonkers-crazy 60-song, double-volume 'favorite songs of the year' mix. Now, the amount of time I've spent whittling this down from well over 100 songs is close to embarrassing, so for my sake, let's all just assume that I threw the whole thing together this evening in one quick and painless jiff. I do wish I had the time to sit and explain how much I love each and every one of these songs and how much they all meant to me this year, but no such luck. Should you have something to ask or tell about anything you hear here, please do leave a comment and we can talk about songs there! Together!

As I've already mentioned, this was a beyond great year for musics. The simple fact that I started with over 100 hundred songs should speak volumes to that. Speaking of volumes, here are Volumes One and Two of Au Revoir: Skatterbrain's Favorite Songs of 2010. The point of this is to share, so I hope you can find something new to love in these mixes! Again, your comments are very welcome.

Thank you so much, I absolutely love when the authors of music blogs make a zip folder of their favourite songs. It's such a good luck into someone else's world.

A great collection of blissful pop! So many cool indie pop songs/artists that don't turn up on other bloggers' year end lists. Great artwork too -- actually all your mix covers are objects of beauty :)

just want to add my thanks for your collections. Keeps my buying indiepop, because I would likely otherwise know about the bands.
