Favourite Singles of 2008

#1 Little Boots – Stuck On Repeat
A.M.A.Z.I.N.G., to say the least

Découvrez Little Boots!

#2 Madonna – Beat Goes On
Thank God (and/or Kanye West) for this highlight of her overall disappointing album. Fantastic rap verse.

Découvrez Madonna!

#3 Goldfrapp – A&E
Pure bliss, wonderful chorus, fantastic band
#4 The Saturdays – Up
Not-so-great band, good debut album, perfect single

Découvrez The Saturdays!

#5 MGMT –Kids
The best song name Kids since the Kylie/Robbie duet

Découvrez MGMT!

#6 Girls Aloud – Love Is The Key
You have to wait ‘til track 4 to get the best song on Out Of Control

Découvrez Girls Aloud!

#7 The Killers – Human
As I said : Stuart Price + Brandon Flowers = genius

Découvrez The Killers!

#8 Sam Sparro – Black & Gold
Too bad the rest of his album wasn’t 10% as good as this, it would have been incredible

Découvrez Sam Sparro!

#9 Britney Spears – Womanizer
This song alone means “back on top”… 2008’s Gimme More!

Découvrez Britney Spears!

#10 The Pussycat Dolls – When I Grow Up
They’re awfully vulgar. Only 1/5 of them actually sing. BUT this song is incredibly catchy and shamelessly (??!) enjoyable.

Découvrez The Pussycat Dolls!
