Q1 Report: Songs

These are 34 songs so far in 2010, in very loose order and to varying degrees, that I've been playing with heavy frequency.  There's a Kate Bush cover (the Nada Surf song), there are a couple songs from this year from 2009 albums, but there are no songs for forthcoming releases.  As much as bands like this release "singles", I've tried to capture those so long as they were quality.  2010 is going to be a great year and these songs are setting the stage nicely.
