There we go, all done. You owe it to yourself to listen to these albums (except those listed in the "worst" catergory, obviously). I don't really feel like saying much more about this, except that music was pretty rad this year, and I can't wait to see if 2006 can compare. I dare you to try, 2006.

Ahhh! You put something by Michael Bublé on a 'Best Of' list and it wasn't intended ironically! I love you, man!!!!

Or was it intendid ironically? I hope not. It was a darn great video... made me want to have his babies, etc. The video itself was pretty ironic, I guess. Ironic.

No, I chose that video bfor a very good reason: Michael Buble understands the importance of cramming as many 60's looking girls into a video as possible. This is very important. Also, it is a pretty good song.

This is to say that the girls in the video look like they are from the 60's decade, not that they look like they are in their 60's. This is also important.

As much as I love the album, Two was released in '03 - unless there was some re-issue or something that lets it in on a technicality, which would be awesome.

Damn! I was totally sure that I was not making the faux pas of listing an older album on this feature. But Ryan was good, and caught me. If anything, let's just say that the album was good enough to be on a "Best of" list for 3 years in a row.

I love that album too, so it works for me.
