Since I just can't seem to get motivated to redo ginormous lists over here...

Top 10 albums of '05 (no order):
Los Super Seven
Billy Corgan (#1)
Art Brut
Bloc Party
Robert Plant & the Strange Sensation
Robin Guthrie/Harold Budd ('Mysterious Skin' OST)
Roll Deep
Lee Ann Womack
Beanie Sigel

close behind:
LCD Soundsystem
V/A - Run the Road
The Free Design
Caps & Jones

Of that top 10, Corgan-Art Brut-Bloc Party-Plant-NIN could all reasonably be called "rock." I'm awfully surprised that I've got that many in there, but hey: good shit is good shit. And a full half of my top 10 (the first 5) I heard thanks to Paul. Rock on!

Singles (again, no order):
"Signs" - Snoop (#1)
"Let's Get Blown" - Snoop
"Hollaback Girl" - Gwen
"The Avenue" - Roll Deep
"Wait" - Ying Yang Twins
"Don't Cha" - Pussycat Dolls f/Busta
"Since U Been Gone" - Kelly Clarkson
"Touch" - Omarion
"Heartbeat" - Annie
"Hate It Or Love It" - The Game & 50 Cent
(I bumped singles by NIN ("Only"), Womack, and Sigel because those folks're on my album "ballot." I fear I've become one of those P&J voters! And Corgan's "To Love Somebody" and Royksopp's "Circuit Breaker" will instantly make my list if they become singles, since I'm still strict about it that definition.)
