The Best, 2009 Style

It's taken me way too long to finish this, but here it is. This is a collection of the best tracks I shared out this year during Christmas In July. I think it will give you a good idea of what goes on around here during the month of July. Each of the tracks on here was pulled from a non-holiday LP, which means you're liable to miss it come the holiday season. But I don't want that to happen, so I compile and share these out during July. I think I shared well over 200 songs this year, and I think these are the 31 best. Each track below is linked to the day I originally shared it, in case you want to read more about it. Please download and enjoy Ernie (Not Bert)'s The Very Best From Christmas In July 2009-Life's A Beach (Ernie (Not Bert), 2009).
