Wasn't inspired to blog much today, but I hope to have my favorite songs of 2007 up tomorrow. Contain yourselves.

I can tell you a song that won't be on the list, which is the one I heard this morning at my favorite coffee shop. It featured a chorus of people singing "Give Peace a Chance" over African music of some kind, with Steven Tyler occasionally coming in to wail like his banshee self. Each element was bad -- the marriage of them was life-draining.

OK, I just looked it up. The song is credited to "Aerosmith & Sierra Leone's Refugee Allstars," and it appears on Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur. A great cause. But the album also features Avril Lavigne singing "Imagine." Speaking of which, I imagine it's easy enough to just write a check straight to the cause.

The only song worthwhile on that album is Regina Spektor's cover of "Real Love."
