top 3 songs of 2008


Recommended Posts


The Rip-Portishead

White Winter Hymnal-Fleet Foxes



i consider In Rainbows to be a 2007 album


Good list. Not the usual Coldplay and Oasis choices haha.


Mine would be:


1. Bon Iver - For Emma

2. Elbow - Grounds For Divorce

3. Hey Rosetta! - There's An Arc


But this list could change by tomorrow.

Coldplay - Viva La Vida

MGMT - Time To Pretend

Elbow - The Bones Of You


It was difficult to pick one song from Seldom Seen Kid from this album couldve gone with Grounds For Divorce, Mirrorball, On A Day Like This or Weather To Fly. I like them and The Bones Of You equally.


Excellent choice, Sir!


1) Coldplay - Violet Hill (just because it surprised me so much the first time I heard it - really I could spend days choosing between half the songs off VLAODAAHF)


2) Elbow - One Day Like This


3) Vampire Weekend - Campus


(Was hard to pick between Vampire Weekend & MGMT, but I think the fact I saw VW recently swayed me. Both groups made phenomenal albums this year)

No matter where you put it I'm Outta Time deserves to be up there. I considered it at #1 if it wasnt for Coldplay this year.




I found it wore thin very quickly.


The Lennon bit is a nice touch tho. But its just another Oasis ballad. Theres nothing that wrong with it, but its pretty much just another fine song on a fine album.




For me Coldplay's Yes/Chinese Sleep Chant has to get there. Along with that R.E.M song Man Sized Wreath. Nothing else I think is all that brilliant after that, so I'd go with Fires by Feeder.

1 or 2: Coldplay: Viva La Vida (even though right now i dont like listening to it cause its been overplayed)

1 or 2: The Killers: Ive only heard previews, but there will defs be one song from Day and Age in this list, I just havnt chosen yet :)

3: Either another Day&Age song or something off of Propekt's.


I am so indecisive
