MY TOP 40 FOR 2008

In 2007, a bunch of the songs that made my Top 40 list weren’t released in 2007.  Somehow I’m actually catching up with the whole music thing and most of this year’s list is current music.  What isn’t, is music that I found when I’d hear an artist, fall in love and then listen to everything they’ve ever recorded.  Joseph Arthur is a good example of that. I’d never heard of the guy.  I listened to one song, went crazy and then found out he’d been recording for years and had tons of releases.

I’m not listing the albums these songs are from, that takes too much time (slacker).  And my wrists aren’t up to it (crippled).  Actually, if  I hadn’t started compiling this list a few weeks ago, it wouldn’t even be up now (slappled or crickled, take your pick).  Same goes for my Top Album list which I’ll post in a few days.

Most of these are on You Tube and you can click on the song to listen. They are in no particular order.  Enjoy some or all and let me know what you like.

  1. I didn’t see any Toby Keith or Patty Griffin. Two totally different people and styles, just two who I am listen to for a spell. Try watching Toby Keith’s “Who’s Your Daddy?” video on Youtube. It’s good for a laugh. Then watch “God Love Her” by Toby Keith. Little bit of a rebel in me tonight.

  2. this is good to keep for reference material for me, thanks for doing it 🙂

  3. Cool. Some new tunes to check out.
