Top 20 singles of the year

BBC 6 Music is currently inviting listeners to pick their top five singles of the year in preparation for a top 100 countdown on 30th December. Whilst the notion of a singles chart seems somewhat quaint in these post-Top of the Pops digital download days regular readers will know that I can't resist a list, so here are my top 20 singles of 2006:

1. Us - Regina Spektor
2. Trouble - Ray LaMontagne
3. Young Folks - Peter Bjorn And John featuring Victoria Bergsman
4. Heartbeats - José González
5. Men in White Coats - The Dallas Guild
6. We're From Barcelona - I'm From Barcelona
7. Crazy - Gnarls Barkley
8. A Lady of a Certain Age - The Divine Comedy
9. Made-Up Lovesong #43 - Guillemots
10. Gold Lion - Yeah Yeah Yeahs
11. When You Were Young - Killers
12. Supermassive Black Hole - Muse
13. Fill My Little World - The Feeling
14. The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song - The Flaming Lips
15. Snow (Hey Ho) Red Hot Chili Peppers
16. Funny Little Frog - Belle & Sebastian
17. Cellphone's Dead - Beck
18. Empire - Kasabian
19. Better Together - Jack Johnson
20. She Moves In Her Own Way - The Kooks

You can download 14 tracks from this playlist as an iMix from the iTunes Music Store for the princely sum of £11.06.

A great list! I've only discovered your blog recently but I have enjoyed reading the older articles. You have done some very detailed reviews. Keep up the solid work in 2007!
