Playing: Songs on the radio - 2007 highlights

This is the selection of tracks I'll be playing today on the show (4-6pm - 2XXfm 98.3 in Canberra). It's a mixture of some of the most interesting stuff I came across in 2007 - not just new releases but also music that I managed to discover and then there are also just a few old faves for good luck.

There are a few tracks from a now perennial fave that comes out around this time of the year - Best of Bootie 2007. (The whole album is freely downloadable from their site here)

Even though it wasn't released as a song in it's own right, I've included what is possibly my favourite song of the year as well - Still Alive from the Xbox game Portal.
