I’m also preparing for 2009, though to be honest~~~ I’ve noticed that I don’t have many 2009 albums – so we’ll see how that goes. I’ve chosen Top15 Songs of 2008 excluding Soundtracks, except for my #1 for sentimental reasons.
No, really.Sentimental reasons why I didn’t take #1 out for being also part of a Soundtrack~
Best 2008 Songs
- Prisoner of Love [lyrics]
In all its forms… Utada Hikaru version, Quiet Utada version, Piano version, Quiet Piano.
the song means so much because of obvious J-drama introduction issues xD
- Sigur Ros – Gobbledigook
Great beats, and nothing beats Sigur Ros with Bjork on the NatGeo performance.
- The Ting Tings – That’s not my Name
way before they were MTV hits, LOL
- Adele – Chasing Pavements
It is a good song… at least it won some Grammys
- Wang Lee-Hom – 春雨里洗過的太陽 – The Sun After Washed by Spring Rain
A great song is a great song. “If you listen to the rhythm of the falling rain”
- Marit Larsen – The Chase
You can’t lose with her… I was undecided between the scary Ten Steps,
but decided on this one in the end… that beginning man.
- Chris Lee (Li Yuchun) – Youth of China
I just love the feeling, the video… the message.
- Alanis Morissette – In Praise of the Vulnerable Man
Dunno, never been a big Alanis fan, but I really dig the song.
- Tracy Chapman – Sing for You
The whole package gets to you. The voice, the lyrics…
- Britney Spears – If You Seek Amy
Whatever… I know you are eye-rolling. The song is good, the video quite crappy.
- Heloise & the Savoir Faire – On Fuego
Love at first TV performance xD
- Milk@Coffee – Curry Coffee
Can’t ever lose with a Curry Coffee combo xD
- Pink – Bad Influence
I’ve seen more bad influence than her lately…
- Vampire Weekend – A-Punk
Also before they hit it too big…
- Crowd Lu – Qué te pasa 你在幹嘛? – What Are You Doing?
Almost didn’t make it, because I just discovered him. More Spanish in the mix!
Almost made it, but didn’t because they are part of OSTs…
- Neil Patrick Harris – Brand New Day
I hearts ***** xD
- Regina Spektor – The Call
Damn, if this hadn’t been on the Narnia OST~
- And some Beijing Olympic tracks~~~
- And some Soundtracks like…
- The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
- Slumdog Millionaire
- Let the Right One in
- Dr. Horrible’s
