Here is a draft 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.

- Naturally All Good Things should not be here, as I liked it more at the end of 2006, but since I continued to like it throughout 2007, I decided to include it.
- Things are a bit tight this year, as I have to choose among songs I liked a lot for a little while and songs I liked for ages but with less passion.
- Non-#1s narrowly missing this list:
Air - Napalm love
James Blunt - 1973
Maroon 5 - Makes me wonder
Al Roy - Eisai gia ton outso NiVo
Take That - Shine
Travis - Closer
