MusicMonday: Favorite Songs of 2009

Yeah, I know I'm late - it's almost March. But it was a challenge to distill the four Favorite of Quarter CDs down to a more manageable "2009 Up" and "2009 Down" - not to mention, decide if to add anything I had previously overlooked.

And as usual, if we know each other and you want to hear the whole mix, just tell me.
