Gotham Gal's Top 10 Records List
The Gotham Gal has her top 10 records of 2006 up on her blog. I've heard these records endlessly this year as she is usually the first one in the kitchen in the morning and thus controls the airplay.
Three or four of her choices will make my top 10 as well. Others like KT Tunstall, Ben Folds, and Lilly Allen, are solid choices, but not my thing.
Although she didn't order her records, I can tell you The Decemberists Crane Wife has to be her top pick for 2006. I can't remember the last time that record wasn't playing in the kitchen!
