A little over a year ago I gave my top 10 favorite Conor Oberst songs, but looking back I don’t like the list nor do I think it showcases Oberst’s versatility and his changing lyrical writing style in the later half of the 2000s. 2012 was a great year for Oberst fans. The long-awaited One of My Kind documentary and CD was released under Oberst’s record company Team Love, his punk band Desaparecidos released two new songs and toured the west coast, and Oberst embarked on a full U.S. and Europe solo tour where I got to see him in Chicago and Madison. One of the beauty of Oberst is the uncertainty about what his next album will be. That said, let’s get this list going. I largely ignored Oberst’s other musical outlets, so in this new list I decided I’d do the complete opposite and not include any Bright Eyes songs. Enjoy! *These are in no particular order.  1. “Nikorette” – Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band In 2007, after a tour to in support of Bright Eyes’ Cassadaga album, Oberst
