:::: Michael V's Top 40 Songs of the Decade ::::

And to close things out, here it is. No snarky commentary*, no hyperbole, no YouTube clips. Just a list of my Top 40 songs of the 2000s, a decade spent mostly in Boston (all but eight displaced months) and a time where I grew into the repressed-but-remarkably dressed person I am today. This is the shit. (*Might add commentary over the weekend, but it's NYE and I have shit to do...)
