The 11 Best Songs of 2010

Even though I'm not a huge fan of the digital world...even though I'm not a huge fan of Apple...I can't help but find myself loving the new Apple TV.  It takes making mixes to the next level.  Even better than an ipod.  I have 100,000 songs.  Now, all my playlists have instant access to all my music at any time.  I guess for every two steps back...there is one step forward.

There's still time to get me your best albums of the year lists.  Just put your list it in the comment section.  I'll get it.  I swear.  Your top twenty...or however many albums you loved/liked this year.

Have a happy holiday.

I agree with your selections, for the most part.

It'll be interesting to see which will be the reigning classics of this decade for the next generation- I can't picture half of these making it.

Love your lists and I know that I haven't got you my top albums yet but I'm curious what exactly you mean with your comments on Apple TV. I've been looking at something like that for a while, but have yet to make a decision. "Now, all my playlists have instant access to all my music at any time" - Can you expand on this at all? Thanks!
