Lyrical Venus: Looking Back on 2007

So I’m a few days behind with the whole 2007 retrospective thing people are doing with their blogs, but considering that December was so crazy for me that I only decorated my Christmas tree 2 days AFTER Christmas, I think I’m doing pretty good with trying to catch up to life in general. *grin* So without further ado, here are some highlights of my first 9 months with this blog.

My Top 10 Listened to Artists, since May, according to Last.fm (not counting iPod and work listens). Pretty much all these folks either had new albums or were a new discovery for me in 2007. Links to the entries I wrote about them if applicable. And for the few I didn’t write about yet, shame on me, but the real reason is I like them so much I want to make sure and do it right and I haven’t had time quite yet.

1. Ingrid Michaelson
2. Rachel Ries
3. Dar Williams
4. Mandy Moore
5. Colbie Caillat
6. Lori McKenna
7. Jasmine Ash
8. Girlyman
9. Adrianne
10. Wendy Woo

I need to add Anais Mitchell in here, because her album came out in February before I started with Last.fm and she’s one of my top played artists on iTunes.

(And yes, yes, if you go check out my Last.fm stats right now, that IS Enrique sitting at spot number 11. He makes me happy. And I listen to the Spanish versions to practice my Spanish, seriously…)

Top 9 Visited Posts of Dec 2007, according to Feedburner, which should be pretty indicative of the year:
1. Cuckoo for CoCo: Colbie Caillat’s Debut Album
2. Looking for Mandy Moore Umbrella Chords? Quick Tip!
3. Umbrella Craze Continues… MariĆ© Digby Has One Too!
4. Chords for Keep Breathing by Ingrid Michaelson
5. I Can’t Stop Listening To: Mandy Moore’s “Wild Hope”
6. Mandy Moore Borrows Rihanna’s Umbrella
7. Ingrid Michaelson’s “The Way I Am” On TV!
8. Feist’s 1234 on the iPod Nano Commercial
9. Too Much Music? Keep Breathing! (or, Ingrid Michaelson Rocks!)

My top 8 personal favorite entries that didn’t make the list above, in no particular order:
1. Absolutely Inspired By Ani DiFranco’s Canon
2. Dar Williams: One of the Most Inspiring Singers I Know
3. 10 Questions with Leslie Berry
4. Wendy Waldman, Wonder Woman!
5. MoZella – You Won’t Forget Her!
6. Broccoli and Beats: The Ditty Bops Farm Tour
7. Adrina Thorpe – A Whole Latte Musical Inspiration!
8. Traveling with Ember and Imogen

Last but not least, links to the blogs of people who left me comments, or who were kind enough to link to me on their blogs, in no particular order. Frank and Jana get the “most comments” prizes (Thanks ya’ll!!). If I missed someone let me know and I’ll link you up ASAP!
