ROSS FLOURNOY (The Broken West)

I decided to do my top 15 songs (unranked) of 2006. I'm the kind of person who, if I fall in love with a song, will play it on repeat for 3 to 4 days straight. Here are 15 songs released in 2006 I did that with:

"Pushover" -- The Long Winters
"Serious" -- The World Record
"Lloyd, I'm Ready to be Heartbroken" -- Camera Obscura
"Chinese Translation" -- M. Ward
"Incinerate" -- Sonic Youth
"The Blues Are Still Blue" -- Belle & Sebastian
"U.S. Mustard Company" -- Robert Pollard
"Ever Thought of Coming Back" -- Kelley Stoltz
"Hey Chicken" -- Loose Fur
"Breaking the Ice" -- Mojave 3
"It Looks Like Love" -- Josh Rouse
"Beanbag Chair" -- Yo La Tengo
"Sour Shores" -- Portastatic
"Confidence Man" -- Oakley Hall
"Don't Take My Sunshine Away" -- Sparklehorse

Evidently, Mr Bejar could not be roused from his Spanish siesta long enough to contemplate a top 10 list for 2006. He claims to have not listened to any "new" music in months, and apparently could not come up with 10 records that he heard last year. Sorry. I would have liked to have seen his list as well.
