Here we are at the last day of a calendar year once again and only a few months removed from the The Intermission and the first 75 songs we loved. When we started years ago, who knew we’d even see this many Decembers together, as writers and readers?
But we’re here and, as usual, we wanted to share the songs that gave us joy (and job security) for yet another year. As a staff, we gathered up the titles, sans rhyme or reason or any logical cohesion, except that we played these records on repeat so often they deserve mention as the key tracks that stood out from our personal playlists.
As always, there are no rankings here. We couldn’t do that if we wanted to because, as a Crew, every member stands strong behind their choices and blood would be spilled trying to crown one tune above the 100+ others. These are simply our favorites; feel free to add a few of yours in the comments.
