Daves Faves 2009

There's such a love hate relationship with this ritual. Those of you who partake in this annual exercise know the struggle. With so much great music this past year, where, who, what, when, how to begin? Well, fortunately with the help of Rhapsody (yes, another plug) I've been dropping my faves into a playlist throughout the year. So, here in December, it just comes down to taking a look back, arranging and pairing it down to a CD length mix. 80 minutes of music; easy enough right? Not so much with roughly 100 tunes that made it into the 2009 "drop box" of faves. But in the end I made some compromises and came up with a mix that I think represents my year in music pretty well. There's a bit of everything in there. Some highs, some lows, but that's how the story goes. So, now, without further ado, Daves Faves 2009...
