Snobcast Recap: 2007.12

Written by  //  December 31, 2007  //  The Conservatory  //  No comments

Awww, the Best-Of list. Everybody longs to have the definitive outlook, but nobody ever gets it right. So here’s what we will be doing: We will be analyzing the year end lists of some other “reputable” music publications, I’ll sort of edit them accordingly to fit my preferences, and then play those songs on the Snobcast. Then you, the reader, can tell me what you think should stay; what should go; and what should be added or subtracted from the list/playlist. In the end we will have compiled the definitive Best of 2007 list.

This is who has been dismissed from and who has been added to the list:

Additions: Subtractions:
Mayhem M.I.A.
Missy Higgins The Broken West
Spank Rock White Rabbits
Amy Winehouse Beirut
