Hits of 2008

What I'm Listening To

My top ten favourite tracks of 2008!

5 Years Time - Noah and the Whale

This was originally released in 2007 but failed to chart. It proved to be second time lucky, peaking at #7 in the UK and #10 in Ireland. I liked the recognition of the uncertainty of thinking ahead into the future. It's easy to say 'we'll be together forever' or whatever, but nobody really knows, do they?

So What - Pink

I've always loved Pink, right from 'There You Go', and this is one of my favourites.

Fascination - Alphabeat

Who doesn't love a bit of Danish power pop? Alphabeat originally released this one to the home market in 2006, then in 2008 it reached #6 in the UK.

Viva La Vida - Coldplay

I'm not a big Coldplay fan, but I'll make an exception for this one.

What's It Gonna Be - H "Two" O ft. Platnum

I played this so much when I was stuck in the library studying back at university, dreaming of being somewhere - anywhere - else.

Nine In The Afternoon - Panic! At The Disco

Definitely their best song, in my opinion.

Black and Gold - Sam Sparro

Still such a fantastic track. <3

Heartbeat - Scouting For Girls

I went straight out and bought their album on CD which was already becoming a rarity for me by '08. No regrets though!

Wearing My Rolex - Wiley

It might have been, in the inimitable words of Dr. Syntax, watered down grime pop - but I still enjoyed it!

I Kissed a Girl - Katy Perry

It spent five weeks at #1 and outraged morally conservative types everywhere.
