Songs of 2008

It's time for Song of the Year.

I can't believe I've done this consistently for the last four years!

God, I feel old.

Whatever! Okay, let's get down to business...

Song of the Year...blah, blah, blah...other songs on the list unranked...blah, blah, blah...who will Mute Math's "Typical" pass the crown to this year...blah, blah, blah...

If you know anything about me and who my favorite artist is and also know that said favorite artist had an album that came out this year, then you really shouldn't be surprised....

SONG OF THE YEAR............

DRUM ROLL PLEASE...................





"Citizen of the Planet" by Alanis Morissette

Yeah, Alanis!!!! I was really feeling this song with me going to China for the Olympics and all. It was my 2008 theme song. And, also, it's Alanis and you guys know I think she can do no wrong.

Incidentally, Alanis also has won my coveted CD of the Year award for Flavors of Entanglement.

That's two years in a row that a rock artist has won Song of the Year and CD of the Year (Mute Math won both awards last year). Hip-hop artists really need to step it up. You're starting to lose me.

Anyways, here's the rest of the best (long list this year). Go make an awesome playlist for your new Blackberry Storm. ;)

I am ok with most of this list except 4 minutes (terible song) and take a bow (that album had so many way better songs.) also your list is missing TI who had a banner comeback this year.

I am suprised there is no Kanye although he has had much better music in the past.

First of all, Haneefah is here!!!

For those who don't know, this is Lisa's sister. :)

Second of all, Haneefah, as you're new to the "Songs of the Year" post, I must request that you please not be offended by what I'm about to say. It's a running Song of the Year joke. it goes...



Now to address your points:

4 Minutes had trumpets in it! TRUMPETS!

Take a Bow was a great song and Rihanna was well represented on the list this year (3 songs!). So, I would say you're correct, her album was great; but these were the songs that competed best with the rest of the industry...ummm, according to my ear. ;)

No TI because Lil' Wayne is the only hip-hop artist who I think can claim having a banner year (and I still don't get how that happened, but yeah...). And, also, I quickly got sick of "Whatever You Like" (although I do like that song he did with Rihanna; just fell short of making the list).

No Kanye because he's singing now and I'm totally not feeling it.

Hip-hop artists should not sing!
