Part 1 of 2009’s Festive Fifty is up and running and it’s a corker. Head here to check out songs 50-34, as voted by Contrast Podcast contributors and listeners. You will hear from a few of my favourites, including The Antlers and Meursault, and each track is introduced by a fellow blogger or contributor. What I love about the Contrast Podcast, and the Festive Fifty, is not only do you get to hear what songs and artists have done it for people this year, but you also get to hear what everybody sounds like. I’m quite partial to the UK voices myself.
Here’s what hit the top of the previous two Festive Fifty countdowns – what will be number 1 this year?
White Winter Hymnal – Fleet Foxes (#1 2008 Festive Fifty)
You! Me! Dancing! – Los Campesinos (#1 2007 Festive Fifty)
