Song of the Year Candidate: "I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris"

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

One of my new year's resolutions was to invest in good music, rather than just acquiring, at no cost, whatever I could get my hands on. It's a resolution that grew of out envy, envy of those who are able to make best-of-the-year music lists in December. I read those lists and then go get that music. This year, I want to make my own list, and I want the list to be populated with stuff I've actually invested in.

So, to be eligible, an album or song must be released in 2009, and it must be in my library by conscious choice and at some cost. I'll provide regular nominee previews throughout the year.

Here's the first nominee for Song of the Year: Morrisey's "I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris" from his recently released "Years of Refusal." Enjoy.
