Don’t you just love end of year charts? You do? Good. We’ve got some more of them for you.

In fact Northernights asked some other local internet fiends for their seven records of 2007 and we got some of them back. Yer Mam!, by the way, has embarked on a very ambitious round-up of the year and we promised not to reveal that particular top seven until its already released. We suggest you head over there and enjoy that full countdown.

Meanwhile, the lovely Jamila over at Fucking Dance has selected ‘Bathroom Gurgle’ by Late of the Pier as her favourite song of 2007 but here’s the others in all their glorious seven-ness.
