The 205 best downloads of 2005

Fill your iPod Nano in one fell swoop with the recommendations of the New York Post’s music staff. They’ve picked their 205 favorite song downloads of the year (Why 205? Why not?), and it’s a pleasantly eclectic list, featuring usual suspects (Gwen Stefani’s ubiquitous ”Hollaback Girl”), overlooked deep cuts from said suspects (Bruce Springsteen’s haunting ”Matamoros Banks,” Alice Cooper’s country gothic ”The Saga of Jesse Jane”), and delightful obscurities (LCD Soundsystem’s homage ”Daft Punk Is Playing at My House”). Plus, several remixes of what the Post calls the song of the year, Kelly Clarkson’s ”Since U Been Gone.”
