    ReplyDelete
  10. Maxwell is your best song on the list in my opinion followed by Beyonce. The list really just made me relive the whole year. Great job and didn't Poker Face come out in 2008? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  11. I think the intro song is Lady GaGa's song Telephone. Anyways I totally agree where is Rihanna or Paramore?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  15. You forgot to put Michael Jackson? JK! Great list I totally agree with the comment above that Halo was waaaaaaay better than sweet dreams.

    ReplyDelete
  16. LOVE IT! I loved all those songs soooo much. Your list = awesomeness!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I would have to disagree with your choices and remove lmfao and pink and replace them with Taylor Swift you belong with me and britney spears 3 or if you seek amy those songs were so much better than those you put. Also Jay-Z at #1? Maybe #2 this year it was a black eyed peas year!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yup the intro is Telephone by Lady GaGa & Beyonce'

    ReplyDelete
  19. who the hell is this lmafo group? i agree with your pick however they are tight.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Okay I bet the reason britney and taylor were not on the list is b/c they are not artists but imposters...sorry...

    I totally agree with this list...all of those artists did an amazing job! Pink was on tour for 2 years doing acrobats and Beyonce had an amazing show for a full year....and taylor and britney...they lipsynched and got asked to shut the hell up by kanye and now we need to respect them??? no!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love your countdown those songs really made the year...maybe you could do an 11-20 with artist like FloRida, Jordin Sparks, Pitbull, Britney, Taylor Swift, Jason DeRulo, Rihanna and Chris Brown?

  52. 1.Shakira "She Wolf"

    A killer track, with Shakira trying at least three different modes:

    (1) the song's happy principal flounce, Shakira a cyborg Dolores O'Riordan;

    (2) Shakira's occasional lycanthropy, transforming into a breathy sex animal (naturally, this is the principal interest of the song's video);

    (3) gentle, dewy Shakira - the one who quietly calls "awoo!" and skips along to "She Wolf"'s closing strings. And no complaints here.

    ReplyDelete
  53. 2. Kid Cudi ft. Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Common & A-trak - "Make Her Say"

    I'm glad for the costumery (as pop-star uniform goes, it beats bellybutton rings), and I like some of the choruses, but I am still unsmitten with the whole cloth of Lady Gaga's songs. Kid Cudi has shrugged off such meditations, stolen a few of Gaga's best stutters, and tossed it into a marvelous, raunchy, rhyme-rich cut. So craftily put together, tight and slack at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  54. 3. Flaming Lips - "Watching the Planets"

    It's not that the Flaming Lips went back to their old sound - it's that they went back to their old habit of being astonishing. For Embryonic, they set aside the last decade's sour pop lullabies; instead they made something loose and cavernous, glimmering and secret. They rattled bones, chipped teeth, blew out the EQ. Here, with Karen O cooing down a wire, the Flaming Lips raze every dumb young idea to the ground.
