I Want You!

I want you, readers, to send me a list of your top 10 power pop (and I define that term quite elastically as you likely know, so you can as well) discs of 2006. Email me at the link over on the right of the page by December 18 (that's 10 days from now), and after all the lists are in, I'll compile the votes on a 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 points basis. You're also free to leave your top 10 in the comments to this post. I'll accept EPs, and stuff that came out in late 2005 (or things that were buried in 2005 before seeing the light this year, like Andrew LeDrew's Ladies Lookout). But no Sufjan Stevens, please.

There is so much music that the year it came out doesn't mean too much to me.
But my discovery of the year for myself is Saul Zonana. I heard 2 songs and bought the whole catalog from eMusic (my first booster pack). Not a bad song in the bunch for me. Hits all of my musical buttons.
It's another one of those 'how did I miss this guy' stories.

I was listening to the XM Unsigned channel when I heard "Lullaby" from a band called gidgets ga ga.
I checked them out at the Chicago IPO and they were a blast live. I also bought their whole catalog off itunes and it's been ear candy ever since...
