As I sit here and listen to the first song by Dan Deacon, I wish it was about 90s degrees with about 50,000 fans out somewhere in the middle of a field jamming out to this. Instead I am alone in my urine sitting behind a computer screen typing this out while the outdoors is frigid. We can dream can’t we?
With such a positive outlook, it would seem to be the perfect first song to this 3rd new music podcast for 2009. This podcast has inspired me at some point to do one based on the biggest disappointments from the Aughts or as I will refer to as “The Aught for Naughts”. That will be at a later time.
For those of you excited about the prospect of hearing a Decemberist song as one of my favorite songs for 2009 you will be disappointed. I could only include 2 Irish Bands/Artists on this particular mix. Sorry folks!

4. Morrissey – When Last I Spoke To Carol
