All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen chats with Stephen Thompson, editor for NPR's Song of the Day about the year's best tracks from the show. Each weekday the online program highlights new or notable songs with a short essay, offering listeners a chance to discover music that's otherwise hard to find. Standouts from 2006 include Okkervil's "The President is Dead" and "Couch Song" by Sera Cahoone.
