Best Album of 2009

Here's a top 3. If you couldn't tell already, I have a hard time committing to just one thing.
#3 The Essential Neil Diamond, Neil Diamond.
Recommended by: It's Rachel and Jeremy's go-to house cleaning soundtrack. Sometimes it's clutch in a stressful "I'm going to fall asleep looking for missing commas after introductory phrases" situation.

#2 Sara Watkins, Sara Watkins
Recommended by: Mallory. A great summer CD. Second most listened to of 2009. Worth hearing: "Long, Hot, Summer Days," "All This Time."

#1 Glee: The Music, Vol. 1


Recommended by: I saw this show for the first time when it aired after American Idol, and then I proceeded to bully all of my friends into watching it.

It's had its highs and lows, but the best thing about Glee is its soundtrack (though Mallory will tell you it's a tie between the soundtrack and Matthew Morrison). I dare you not to grin while listening to any of the songs, but most of all "Somebody to Love," "Keep Holding On," and "Don't Stop Believin'."

I'm loving this "best" list I've seen now on multiple Welton blogs. I just might join...

"...though Mallory will tell you it's a tie between the soundtrack and Matthew Morrison." Teehee! You know me well.
