I always enjoy reading those best-of-year lists and used to compile my own back in the day, but I have become so removed from secular pop culture that most of the names on those lists are unfamiliar to me. Music still holds my interest and Christian contemporary is my preferred genre.
I have enough favorite songs, sacred and secular, from 2009 to compile a top 10 list. In no particular order, here they are.
Carolina Liar: Show Me What I'm Looking for
Silversun Pickups: Panic Switch
Plumb: God-Shaped Hole (2010)
Bat for Lashes with Scott Walker: The Big Sleep
Steven Curtis Chapman: Heaven Is the Face
Doves: Kingdom of Rust
Chris Tomlin: I Will Rise
