2008 was a rich year for songs. In my last-day-of-the-year retrospective radio show, there was barely time for a third of the music chosen. New groups, seasoned writers, quirky styles and twists of imagination. A select number of these songs were found on albums that were strong all the way through.
What else separated the top ten from the pack...
• Clarity and depth of emotion in the writing and performance of a song(s).
• The obscure fun factor.
