THE HALFWAY HOME HOT 100

Yeah, here’s a list of stuff I’ve liked so far this year, neatly rounded off to 100. (Oddly enough, I went through my list of artists who released something in 2008 that I liked, dragged-and-dropped one song from each artist into a playlist sight unseen, worried that I wouldn’t have enough to make a list of 100, then found that I had exactly that many.) Note that some of this hasn’t been officially released as of the pseudo-half-year mark of 7/1/08, but enh. This is maybe the indiest/geekiest aggregation of pop music I’ve put together in a while, but it’s all good in its own way whether it’s trashy electro or slick R&B or indie rap or mainstream rap or used-to-be-mainstream-but-is-now-indie rap. Or indie rock, yikes. Arranged alphabetically, so it also boasts the hilarious awkwardness of pitting Jason Forrest Donna Summer next to Real Actual Original Donna Summer.
