Here is a rough list of the contenders for my year-end top 20 list - basically my favourite songs this year in alphabetical order by the artist.Just like last time (and every year actually), my year-end chart contains songs that may have not been released as singles; in fact some of them may have not been released within the year at all.
It merely represents the songs I loved the most during the previous 12 months and started to like within that period, or shortly before.
Subject to change.
Lily Allen - Smile
Camera obscura - Lloyd, I'm ready to be heartbroken
Cassius - Toop toop
Chungking - Voodoo
Clap your hands say yeah - In this home on ice
Coldcut ft. John Matthias - Man in a garage
CSS - Let's make love and listen to Death From Above
Does it offend you, yeah? - Battle royale
Gotan project - Diferente
Guillemots - Trains to Brazil
Kore. Ydro. - Hirapsia / Gay anthem for the new millennium
Margot & the Nuclear So and So's - Skeleton key
Meck - Thunder in my heart again (Hott 22 remix)
Morandi - A la lujeba
MYNC Project feat. Abigail Bailey - Something on your mind (Switch remix)
Povia - Vorrei avere il becco
Markus Schulz with Departure and Gabriel & Dresden - Without you near (Gabriel & Dresden mix)
Severina - Moja štikla
Shakedown - Fantasy (Sharam Jey remix)
Alycia Stefano - Que calor (Enzo Mori & Stephan Clark mix)

Teamsters - Feels like love (Morjac club mix - String outro)
Justin Timberlake - My love
Sibel Tüzün - Super star
The Ultrasonics - Why you had to leave
Rufus Wainwright - The maker makes
White rose movement - Girls in the back
- Get Together by Madonna should also be there, but since it already made #19 on my 2005 year-end list, I thought I should omit it - not sure if it would make the top 20 this time anyway.
- There are only very few non-2006 releases, unexpectedly enough.
- Still uncertain as to what my #1 will be, let alone the final shape of the list.
- Not sure whether I'll make a promo video this time either.
