Top 2006 Songs of 2006

That's right. Someone actually did it. Anytime you make a list this big you are begging for hits controversy. I don't have the time or energy to debate a list of 2006 songs regardless of the year, decade, half-century or millenium in question. I will however point out one of the funniest comments I have read on a blog all year. Naturally, it is signed "anonymous":

Where are the Fratellis? One of the best albums of 06. Oh, right. It isn't soft and mushy indie shit. People have been wondering just what "indie" means for a long time. Apparently it means "music for overly sensitive mama's boys who think this is the kind of music that will get them laid when all it really can do is land them in friendland....."
That Fratellis album is sick. Any thoughts on where "friendland" is? One more note, the world where a Nelly Furtado track (+ or - the presence of Timbaland) beats out the greatness of Band of Horses' "The Funeral" - whether it is a world called "friendland" or not - is not a world I want to be living in.
