    The Top 90.3 show was simply awesome. Cheryl and Troy have great natural chemistry….and I too was choked up at the end. What a fantastic station and a great countdown. Thanks.

    i can not believe that peter bjorn and john did not make the top 10 much less the list!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wow and wow.

    I think that everybody was confused about when it actually came out. The original release of “Writers Block” was in 2006.

    This is a great list! And I believe the top three deserve the position, but I’m with Jonathan about peter bjorn and john. Why? They are awesome and they definitately should be on here near the top of the list. Their songs will endure beyond the moment. Biggest omission of the 2007 list!

    I believe it. They came out last year…just not here. They were at the top of mine for sure!

    I’m really surprised Tiny Vipers did not make the count down at all. Nothing I voted for made it, but I expected that one to.
