Stockard Channing Did Hold Sway

Finally got around to sorting out a version of Pick of 2008 for posting here. These are not the BEST songs of 2008 but a selection of my FAVOURITES which I think - sort of - fit together. Track-listing below and you can download it in two parts. The compilation title is from the lyrics of the last song. The titles (and therefore the songs) that didn't make it include Fat Cops Make Bigger Targets ('Happy Spirits' by Radar Bros.) and Tired of Being A Hero ('A Sad Country Ballad for A Tired Superhero' by Woodpigeon). Too many songs, too much choice, something's got to give.
