The 21 Best New-ish Songs That I Don't Think Enough People Have Heard

The other day, I was hanging out with some co-workers of mine and we started talking about music. It turns out the neither of them had heard many of the songs that I was really into lately. I promised to introduce one of them to my musical tastes, and went home to make a CD.

I then started playing the CD for a few other friends, and it turned out that NONE of them had heard most of the tracks on the CD. Had they not all really liked the CD, I would have just written myself as having odd taste in music. But since they did, I’m writing this post to make sure everyone else can be exposed to the more awesome music.

Another thing that I realized after looking over the album is that almost all of the songs were introduced to me by Morgan Holzer. That girl has wicked taste in music and I highly recommend you check out her PopTen stuff
