Never did my “Best 2008 Songs”

August 25, 2009 — Leave a comment

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

  1. 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
  2. Sigur Ros – Gobbledigook
    Great beats, and nothing beats Sigur Ros with Bjork on the NatGeo performance.
  3. The Ting Tings – That’s not my Name
    way before they were MTV hits, LOL
  4. Adele – Chasing Pavements
    It is a good song… at least it won some Grammys
  5. 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”
  6. 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.
  7. Chris Lee (Li Yuchun) – Youth of China
    I just love the feeling, the video… the message.
  8. Alanis Morissette – In Praise of the Vulnerable Man
    Dunno, never been a big Alanis fan, but I really dig the song.
  9. Tracy Chapman – Sing for You
    The whole package gets to you. The voice, the lyrics…
  10. Britney Spears – If You Seek Amy
    Whatever… I know you are eye-rolling. The song is good, the video quite crappy.
  11. Heloise & the Savoir Faire – On Fuego
    Love at first TV performance xD
  12. Milk@Coffee  – Curry Coffee
    Can’t ever lose with a Curry Coffee combo xD
  13. Pink – Bad Influence
    I’ve seen more bad influence than her lately…
  14. Vampire Weekend – A-Punk
    Also before they hit it too big…
  15. 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
    • Osen
    • Atsu-hime
    • Dr. Horrible’s
