Fingertips Top 10 update

The Fingertips Top 10, over on the main site, is always a good way to catch up with some of the best songs that have been posted here over the last few months. I haven't blogged about it since October, and it's yet again turned over since then. Here's where it stands now:

1. "Johanna" - Think About Life
2. "Hotel Lights"- Amy Cook
3. "Numbers Don't Lie"- The Mynabirds
4. "The River" - Audra Mae
5. "Good Boys" - the Minor Leagues
6. "Castaways" - Shearwater
7. "Vendela Vida" - Dinosaur Feathers
8. "Floating Vibes" - Surfer Blood
9. "Get Going" - Headlights
10. "Empty-Hall Sing-Along" - Woodpigeon

Like everything else on Fingertips, the Top 10 is idiosyncratic and synchronicitous. No research is involved, no polling performed, no focus groups consulted, and no "people who like this also like..." recommendations heeded. The list exists merely to say "Well done" to ten particularly wonderful songs at any given time. Remember, however, that Fingertips only features carefully filtered music to begin with, so you can't go wrong with any of the MP3s featured here, basically ever.
