A couple notes about the list:

- It was made with a bias against the artists on my list of favorite albums of the year, but a couple sneaked on anyway.

- The Wikipedia definition of earworm is "a song stuck in one's head, particularly an annoying one", but I use the word in a purely positive, affectionate way.
