Top 20 Songs of 2005 So Far

July 21st, 2005 Posted in Music

I was inspired by my buddy Wu over at Backfield in Motion to make a list of my favorite twenty songs released so far in 2005. Since I’m too lazy to write something about each one, I chose instead to let part of each song do the talking. Hope you enjoy; click below to see the list.

    Find him, find him

    Clawing at the ceiling

    Of his grave

    I am gonna make it through this year if it kills me

    I summon you to appear my love
