Favorite Songs of 2007

Ah, such good music this year. I feel like doing nothing more on this New Year's Day than to sit and listen to music. Here is a list of some of my favorites that I discovered this year (although some are older). They are in no particular order.
Ok, your turn. What were some of your favorite songs for the year?

This year I found Mika and Lilly Allen. I fell more in love with Rufus when I saw him in concert - something daughter Liz had been telling me for years. Now I have to follow some of these links and see what's hot!
