I've said it before and I'll say it again.. I love the end of the year because I love all of the Top-Whatever lists.
Billboard has already figured out their best songs, albums, tours, etc. etc. etc. of 2008, and I'm here to present them to you. :)
Top 10 Songs of 2008:
10. Chris Brown--> Forever
9. Chris Brown--> With you
8. Usher/Young Jeezy--> Love in This Club
7. Sara Bareilles--> Love Song
6. Jordin Sparks/Chris Brown--> No Air
5. Timbaland/OneRepublic--> Apologize
4. Lil Wayne--> Lollipop
3. Alicia Keys--> No one
2. Leona Lewis--> Bleeding Love
1. Flo Rida/T Pain--> Low
Anyone surprised yet? No? Didn't think so. The only thing that surprises me is that some of these songs were from '08.
Moving on... Albums of the Year..
10. Garth Brooks--> The Ultimate Hits
9. Carrie Underwood--> Carnival Ride
8. Various Artists--> NOW 26
7. Cold Play--> Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends
6. Kid Rock--> Rock N Roll Jesus
5. Taylor Swift--> Taylor Swift
4. Eagles--> Long Road Out of Eden
3. Lil Wayne--> The Carter III
2. Josh Groban--> Noel
1. Alicia Keys--> As I am
Surprised yet? Count me in. I didn't know NOW CD's still rocked the charts like that. Also, Josh Groban as #2? Wow. Sweet, kinda. And I didn't know Kid Rock did that well, either.
Anyways.. Top Ringtones of the Year [Yes, they really have this.]
10. Rihanna--> Take a Bow
9. Alicia Keys--> No One
8. Plies/Ne-Yo--> Bust It Baby Pt. 2
7. Leona Lewis--> Bleeding Love
6. Chris Brown--> With You
5. Usher/Young Jeezy--> Love In This Club
4. Katy Perry--> I Kissed a Girl
3. T.I.--> Whatever You Like
2. Flo Rida/T-Pain--> Low
1. Lil Wayne--> Lollipop
The only thing that strikes me about this is that a good deal of them are slow. I thought most people liked upbeat songs.. And maybe NOT ones they hear every 2 seconds on the radio. How will you know if you're ringing, or if you should turn up the volume?!
Finally, Readers' Choice Best Albums
10. Anacostia--> Heavy Rotation
9. RBD--> The Best of RBD
8. Panic! At The Disco--> Pretty. Odd.
7. Beyonce--> I Am.... Sasha Fierce
6. Guns N Roses--> Chinese Democracy
5. Elisa--> Dancing
4. Mariah Carey--> E=MC2
3. David Cook--> David Cook
2. David Archuletta--> David Archuletta
1. Britney Spears--> Circus
Wow. Britney is #1. Sweet. American Idol runner up #2, winner #3? Interesting. I think it's kinda obvious who voted for this, but I'm not complaining one bit.
So there ya have it. A couple more lists to countdown to the new year! Are you ready for it?!
