pitchfork people. pitchfork people. pitchfork people. come read my interwebbingnetblogsite. so i've only heard of about 40 artists from pitchfork's top 100 tracks of 2006 (but i only listen to music half of the day everyday. they probly do all day everyday.) looks like my list is 80 songs. i think about 20 of my picks will make their 2007 list (i'm hardly indie-centric.) we shall see. feel free to drop your fav songs in the comments. feel free not to mention britney, avril, kelly clarkson, kevin drew or nicole scherzinger.
