Alas, another year has passed...We won't see some friends, but we can still enjoy this 2009 NYE playlist, which is just brimming with eclecticity. As usual, there were a lot of great songs vying for SOY honors. Some notables include Standing on the Shore, by Empire of the Sun, and Knock You Down by Keri Hilson. And anything off of the Album of the Year, The xx
But no song seemed to energize me more this year than Passion Pit's Sleepyhead, my 2009 Song of the Year. Just try to listen without moving.
There is still a lot of crap on the radio, but music is alive and well. You just have to know where to find it.
