2008 Faves: Songs

My eight favorite 2008 (or late 2007) releases

Circus by Britney Spears
I feel the adrenaline moving through my veins. / Spotlight on me and I’m ready to break.

As long as you’ve got my crazy, Britney, I’ve got your back!

This Town by O.A.R.
It’s better that we keep this close, / Keep you close to me. / Walking under every sky, / Over every sea. / You can be my modern girl, / And I can be the one you found.

But, Honestly by Foo Fighters
And all the words I gave to you, / Something borrowed, something blue, / If you want them back, / I’ll give it to you.

Many The Miles by Sara Bareilles (Live at The Fillmore)
I do what I can, wherever I end up, / To keep giving my good love.

Setting Forth by Eddie Vedder
This I will recall, / Every time I fall.

Live Your Life by T.I. (featuring Rhianna)
Some move away to make a way / not move away cause they afraid.

Mercy by Duffy
You got to understand that I need a man / Who can take my hand, yes I do.

She’s Like A Star by Taio Cruz
She’s my star, my light, starry night. / Aviator shades, ’cause she shine so bright.

My eight most-played of the year

Red by Sara Bareilles
I am fading in and out, / What are you gonna do save me now, / From all of this danger, you don’t know how, / And I’ll find my way out.

Hide and Seek by Imogen Heap
Oily marks appear on walls / Where pleasure moments hung before / The takeover, the sweeping insensitivity / Of this still life.

And So It Goes by Billy Joel
And this is why my eyes are closed, / It’s just as well for all I’ve seen. / And so it goes, and so it goes, / And you’re the only one who knows.

Running by Evermore
You don’t need a broken heart / To know a heart can be broken, / You just need to open your eyes. / We don’t need to be deceived / To know a lie can be spoken, / We don’t have to learn everything twice.

Always Midnight by Pat Monahan
A way to get back to you, / A way to get outta here. / I don’t want to be alone / At midnight anymore.

This Ain’t A Scene, It’s An Arms Race by Fall Out Boy (featuring Kanye West)
And I don’t really care which side wins / As long as the room keeps singing.

Just Like Heaven by Charlotte Martin (The Cure cover)
Spinning on that dizzy edge / I kissed his face, I kissed his head, / And dreamed of all the different ways / I had to make him glow. / “Why are you so far away?” he said, / “Oh, won’t you ever know that I’m in love with you?”

Party Generation by Dar Williams
It was the kind of party that you hope never ends / . . . There was a lot that you could learn if you lay near them, / Like if you listened you could hear them and he could hear them.
