My Top Picks for '07

Hello fellow DJ Readers (i.e. Hayes). I've been enjoying the daily posts from Mr. Trotter. In fact, the first thing I do every morning is merge onto the Information Superhighway and soak it in while Hayes drops his musical knowledge. I (not being as patient) have crafted a ridiculously long (borderline nerdy----very nerdy) year end list of songs (top 40) and albums (top 10). Check em out and comment if you feel the need:
