2008 Top Five - Favourite Tunes
2008 was a year stuffed full of manufactured music and comebacks. The top 20 at Christmas was very disappointing when I sat listening to it in the car back at home but I don't know why I was surprised. I had to dig deep for some top tunes this year but five jumped out. Here are my five top tunes from 2008
:1) Adele - Hometown Glory
Adele leads the soul revival and I loved this Beautiful and haunting song, even if it is supposed to be about Tottenham!
Video2) Coldplay - Lost
It's probably not still cool to like Coldplay but I still adore this album and I played Lost and it's various remixes
over and over.
Video4) Black Kids - I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You
Infectious and slightly mad. Is Reggie Robert Smith reincarnated?
Video5) Jennifer Hudson - Spotlight
The song reminded me of my first few months in Bermuda and my heart went out to this Chicagoan in October
after her mother, brother and nephew were killed on the south-side of her home town.
