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.
2The Ataris
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.
4Mayday Parade
Jamie All Over

Down and to the left...
5Death 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.
6Snow Patrol
Disaster Button

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.
8Jimmy 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
9Frightened Rabbit
My Backwards Walk

Honest, melodic, emotional, and very, very clever. Meet 2008's best album, and the album's best song.
10The 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'.
11Garth Brooks
The Change

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.
13All 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...'
15The Hoosiers
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.
16Nada Surf
I Like What You Say

Just fantastically addictive pop music.
17Jack's Mannequin

The melody, the piano, the vocals.
18The Postal Service
Such Great Heights

I doubt I will ever stop playing this. I heart Ben Gibbard.
19The 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.
