"Solid Ground" is a 2007 single??

Will check out many of these albums soon. Gettin' Ashley Monroe to try out to make my unreleased quotient for the year (last year's was Fefe).

yep - great song too, and it was definitely ruling my headspace for a good long while this year. also i had to make up for leaving marit off my lists last year. too bad she didn't release "come closer" - it might have been #1.

"give it to me" disqualified for placing last year, of course.

not to make the same ML mistake this year, i've been listening to crazy ex-girlfriend, and it is growing steadily - not feeling either of the singles that much though. hope "gunpowder and lead" makes it next! i feel similarly re: gretchen wilson.

those bottom five or so album slots are extremely tentative - probably needless to say.

btw, i swear i didn't look at this before drafting this version of the line-up.

Can't click yer link...yes, G&L would make a top whatever singles list. Don't much care for the small town one...favorite track is probably "Dry Town," though.

Would replace "Over It" with "Open Toes" for personal reasons, would replace "With Love" with just about any other good track from Dignity but dunno if they're technically singles. Will put "Bullseye" by Aly and AJ damn near the top if it gets released soon (which I'm sure it will), not so sure about Potential BU song. "Sweet Escape" is the one I think people might over look toward the end of the year.

Currently soakin' up the unreleased Ashley Monroe album, which is really wonderful so far. Will getcha a copy.

hm, i can't click my link either. it's this: http://www.sashafrerejones.com/2006/12/best_of_2007.html

oh yeah, forgot about PBUS. forgot about "love story" too, which i might like more than "over it" (not sure) (er, is yr personal reason that you like them open toes?) shoot, forgot mims too.

only other ['07] single [so far?] from diggnitty is "stranger", which i don't love as a single. "with love" is good...

hmm, on further inspection, turns out that neither "play with fire" nor "give it to me" technically made my 'singles list' last year - though they made the mix, which i kind of consider more official. "give it" did make #3 on my p&j ballot.

actually, in all seriousness, i think i'd like to add the new world remix of "my humps" to the list as well. need to get an mp3 of that.

Doubt one exists but I might email the guy about it, sure he could make one.
