Popular wisdom will tell you that the album is quickly going the way of the 45, and yet it’s no stretch to say that most people in my line of work (that’d be criticism!) still think about music in album-centered terms.

On Twitter this afternoon, I’m spinning some of my favorite nonalbum songs from 2009. Check out what I’ve got—-with links and videos—-after the jump. Reload often!
