M3 Online has some amazing Mp3 posts for their Best of 2005 lists. Many of these tracks showed up on my Best Of list - or on my huge list of essential songs (see 12/17). If you want to hear these, act fast!
Top 1-25 (link) includes:
20. Sufjan Stevens "Predatory Wasp" - gorgeous and complex. One of my faves on that CD.
14. Sia "Breathe Me" - the amazing song from Six Feet Under
13 Imogen Heap "Hide And Seek" - all vocals, processed. Used on The OC, strangely.
09. Jose Gonzalez "Crosses" - the one that sounds like Kings Of Convenience. His best track.
08. Sufjan Stevens "Casimir Pulaski Day" - SAD SONG - showstopper live.
05. Sufjan Stevens "Chicago" - acoustic KCRW version!
Top 65-26 includes:
61. Robyn "Be Mine!" - great pop music for the gym.
51. Ladytron "Destroy Everything You Touch" - PrinceYumYum recommends this.
27. Death Cab For Cutie "Marching Bands Of Manhattan" - brilliant lyrics - great singalong chorus that fits together like a puzzle.
