Because Songs Matter

Comps; the gift that keeps on giving:

Here it is. The final post of 2007 for The rest of this year will be reposts of posts from the year starting with a repost of my favorite show this year…that will come later this morning. Then next week will be a countdown of my favorite albums this year.

We are gonna close out this year with the Lucero Message board December comp. It didn’t have a designated theme of Christmas, but some of that ol’ yultide spirit managed to slip in there. You can head over to the Lucero Message board to see who submitted each track and a brief description of why they chose that specific track. You can download it here for the next 2 weeks or so. If you enjoy it, sign up for the message board and contribute in the January comp.
