  1. About time man!!! It has been months!! ;) Hope all is well in SA! I am watching the video right now...I'll let you know what I think of it!

  2. welcome back! i just saw you were on my blogroll and said hellz yea!

    i liked your list but you were missing stuff from green day and maybe zac brown band.

    anyways great list

  3. ART! Glad you are back and the songs you picked are great except for the lmfao song imo

  4. Deuces I totally agree with your list man. I loved it...its not like some of tha other blogs that have Lady Gaga Taylor Swift and Beyonce over and over.

  5. WTF no Taylor Swift?

  6. What happend to anything by the Jonas Brothers like Paranoid or Eminem??? Anywayz good list.

  7. You got it right, Art. Great video and the Marvin Gaye outro was unexpected but totally awesome!!! I can't wait to see some more vids.

  8. What is the name of the intro to your video? It sounds familiar!!!

  9. No Rihanna or Florida???!!!?????

    I love that you had when love takes over and la la la-my jams!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  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? ;)

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

  12. Sheeez this really made me go down memory lane this year great job!!!!!!

  13. So happy to see you are alive and blogging again I have missed your blog alot! BTW I am now in NY so you know I loved your #1 pick.

  14. Great song choices you really made me reminisce (i think i spelled that right) i would of picked halo over sweet dream though thanks welcome back

  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.

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

  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!

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

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

  20. OKAY where is Shakira with she wolf? Anyways that Pink song sucked...that her out and put Shakira. That new york song totally deserved to be #1!

  21. DUDE#!!! Welcome back. I was wondering what happened to you and I was on my blog and saw that you had a new post...I love it...very high-def. Keep up the great work and don't leave us again.

  22. GREEN DAY???? That's all I have to say!

  23. Have you heard of the Decemberists of Chester French...well you need tooo...they had some of the best singles out there!!! Do some research please and stay away from the POP crap!

  24. How can this list not have Britney Spears or Taylor Swift? C'mon!!!

  25. I totally agree with your list. It is legit and totally rockin', totally!!!

  26. What is this list "Now this is what I call music 2009" edition? You totally left out some of the stand out tracks this year like Lily Allen "The Truth" and Rihanna "Russian Roulette"...lyrically they are amazing...

  27. have you lost your marbles and ommited taylor swift? c'mon she was 2009.

  28. It was exciting waiting to see who was next on your top ten countdown...not once was I let down! Great job and welcome back. You should do one one the best songs of the century!

  29. You forgot to put in "Forever" by Eminem, Drake, Lil' Wayne & Kanye West!!!

  30. Ciara & Justin Love SEX and Magic???

  31. OMG this list rocks! Thanks!

  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!

  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?

  34. Hands down the best song of the year should of been Miley Cyrus the climb....that song was incredible!!!

  51. right round- flo rida
    my life would suck without you-kelly clarkson
    afrika- carl wolf
    second chance- shinedown

  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.

  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.

  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.

  55. What about the Yeah Yeah Yeah's or the Ting Tings???

  56. I thought Rihanna's russian roulette was amazing...but maybe it came out too late in the year...your list is great thanks1

  57. jay sean 'down', bep 'boom boom pow' jadakiss 'letter to b.i.g.' mos def 'quiet dog'

    I get it in - 50 Cent
    Jumpin out the window - Ron Browz
    Better on the Other Side - The game
