We often remember each year by the music it gave us, and 2008 gave us a lot of fantastic music. Thus, this end-of-year special highlights your favorite downtempo tunes from the past year. A few of the selections surprised me, but for the most part, these are a lot of my favorites, too, and I hope y'all enjoy having them all together in one big 110-minute mix.
This will be the last episode of Dave's Lounge for 2008, but don't worry. I'll be back on Monday, January 12, with all new music and a few new additions to the web site, some of which I've been meaning to add here for a while now. Stick around. We're still building something here…
