The Best Singles of 2008

11. "Live Your Life," T.I. f/ Rihanna: Another really fun song. I can see people getting really hype when this gets played on NYE. I'm really loving all of this positivity T.I. keeps interjecting into his songs.

10. "Paris, Tokyo," Lupe Fiasco: This was definetly one of the smoothest hip hop tracks all year. Yet another song with a great chorus. 

9. "I Kissed a Girl," Katy Perry: Controversy and religious opinions aside, this song is just so damn catchy! I knew this song was a hit when a guy requested that I play it at this party I was at and everyone was singing along.

8. "American Boy," Estelle f/ Kanye West: This was just a great song that appealed to everyone--the R&B heads, the hip hop heads, people who dig the international scene, your mom, etc. 

7. "Put On," Young Jeezy f/ Kanye West: "I feel like there's still niggas that owe me checks. I feel like there's still b*tches that owe me sex!" Yuppp...this was a great song indeed.

6. "Viva la Vida," Coldplay: The strings and drums in this song are crazy and the message is pretty interesting too. I'm starting to think that Apple hypnotizes people to love all songs that they feature in their commercials.

5. "My President is Black," Young Jeezy: I think that this was the best pro-Obama song to come out this year. Tell me you didn't have this on constant rotation on November 5th?

4. "Shut Up and Let Me Go," The Ting Tings: This song is great for all the same reasons as Metro Station's "Shake It". Plus there's just something great about saying "Shut up and let me go" in that little British voice.

3. "Shake It," Metro Station: This song is just so fun! I have an imaginary party in my head every time I hear it and you can't help but to sing along w/ the chorus.

2. "A Milli," and "Lollipop," Lil Wayne: These catchy songs were filled with plenty of lines worthy of Facebook statuses but the real reason that "A Milli" is one of the best songs of 08 is because I can never get enough of hearing white people say "I open the Lamborghini hopin' them crackers see me". And you can't think about music from 2008 w/o "Lollipop" coming into mind.

1. "Single Ladies," Beyonce:
This song has the ability to pack a dance floor full of women doing the now infamous "single ladies" hand shake. Hardcore Beyonce fans across the world memorized every single dance step from the video and it seemed like every women had a Facebook status or away message saying "If you liked it, then you shoulda put a ring on it". 

Honorable Mention: "Love in This Club," Usher. "Electric Feel," MGMT. "Chasing Pavements," Adele. "Miss Independent," Ne-Yo. "I Luv Your Girl," The Dream. "Little Bit," Lykke Li. "Love Lockdown," Kanye West. "Green Light," John Legend.

Did I miss any crucial songs? What were your favorite songs from 2008?

Hmmm...

I think you're missing Pop Champagne, Whatever You Like, Bust Your Windows, Mrs. Officer, Chopped N Skrewed, Whatever You Like, Paper Planes, and Hi Hater.

LOL, I know it would make your list super long, but they all deserve at least a mention.

I think that Pop Champagne is a rather crappy song, the beat is just sweet!

And Bust Your Windows is almost on the verge of making the worst of 2008 list! I thought that song was funny at first, but w/ that crappy video and the fact that it became a hood rat anthem, I hate it now.

Paper Planes should have been on the list. I just been jamming to it since 07, lol

My name is Armonni 12 yrs.old I attend Mac Dowell Elm. I wrote a poem. This poem won me a trip to the inauguration with Detroit Public School. The DPS do not have money to provide me with a safe trip to Washington DC and They could not afford to pay for a teacher from my school as a chaperone to watch over me, so my mom will be flying me in to receive my award with a possibility to meet Obama. I ask all my family and friends to support my mom in being my personal chaperone to the biggest event in the country. Im so thankful for you all for making me the young lady I am today and I promise when I get rich I will pay you back. I LOVE YOU ALL.



Armonni Matthews-Peace
