|Top Tracks Of '08|
Top PLAYED Tracks of 2008; One track per artist
(Obviously they weren't all released this year. MOST of them weren't, in fact)
Viva La Vida
Damn good song. Epic. I've just seen them live and the chorus of 'woah's before the last chorus was one of the most spine-tingling things ever.
So Long, Astoria
Wow. I love this song but I'm surprised it's SECOND in these charts. Oh well!
Down on my Head
YC have always been a guilty pleasure but this song is just far too catchy and addictive.
Jamie All Over
Down and to the left...
|5||Death Cab for Cutie|
What Sarah Said
Almost the only thing worth listening to repeatedly on Plans, but this is beautiful and so, so well written.
I so didn't manage to love this album but this track might be the best thing they've ever done.
Gentleman of Promise
Power-pop at its very, very best.
|8||Jimmy Eat World|
Let it Happen
At one point over the summer I could relate to this so much I hardly turned it off for 2 weeks
My Backwards Walk
Honest, melodic, emotional, and very, very clever. Meet 2008's best album, and the album's best song.
|10||The Goo Goo Dolls|
I picked up their Greatest Hits and loved it; 'what you feel is what you are and what you are is beautiful'.
No idea what it is about this song but it always gets me.
Made Up Love Song #43
I rarely use the word 'pretty' to describe music but I feel it is warranted here.
|13||All Time Low|
Six Feet Under The Stars
Basically the anthem to my first year at uni.
Talking of Michelangelo
Just can't escape this. 'There's only so many chances that you get to do something that's this important...'
Clinging on for Life
Hahahaha. This actually annoys the s**t out of me. I recommend you never listen to it because once it's in your head it will never ever leave.
I Like What You Say
Just fantastically addictive pop music.
The melody, the piano, the vocals.
|18||The Postal Service|
Such Great Heights
I doubt I will ever stop playing this. I heart Ben Gibbard.
|19||The Hush Sound|
Didn't reckon on this making a top 20. Great song though.
Pioneer to the Falls
Love this album; love this song more.
