I thought this would be excruciating, and it wasn’t as easy to do as for certain past years, but here are ten of the best from 2008.
You can listen to them by clicking them. There are a few more tracks from 2008 to be heard here, listed as my Triple J nominations a few weeks back, so please do let me know if you take a liking, or disliking, to any of them (either there or here).
– Augie March, ‘Lupus’
– Bon Iver, ‘Skinny Love’
– British Sea Power, ‘No Lucifer’
– Coldplay, ‘Violet Hill’
– Neil Diamond, ‘Pretty Amazing Grace’
– Duffy, ‘Mercy’
– Bob Dylan, ‘Dreamin’ of You’
– Al Green, ‘All I Need’
– Tom Morello, ‘Whatever It Takes’
– The Stills, ‘Snow in California’
The chatroom just opened, so come and listen with me. I’d love to hear yours.
They’re in alphabetical order, by the way. Otherwise Bob would be on top.
Interestingly, both Bob Dylan’s and Coldplay’s were offered up as free downloads. Your thoughts on this practice would be welcomed with considerate nods of the head, so hit me with your burning views.
