My Top 10 songs of the Year

December 28, 2008

Okay, so MTV and all the music channels (and the only TV channels that I do watch)  are full of year end summary shows. Best group, top albums, greatest moments, review of the year, etc. Only 3 more days are left, and then we’ll need to get used to writing 2009 instead of 2008… will be hard… for sure. Anyways, let me tell you all which were the songs I liked the most from this year’s line-up. Oh, and I don’t care about MyChemicalRomance or anything else,  so don’t start flaming, this is just my opinion.

Here’s the top 10 songs which I liked/loved/masturbatedon this year:

10 – Coldplay – Violet Hill
The New album and style of Coldplay is something that I really love. Those revolution-like outfits, and the catchy tunes really made them one of my favorite bands of the year, and of course violet hill was running through my ears for weeks. Thanks Coldplay!

9 – MGMT – Time to Pretend
MGMT is an interesting band, I saw them on this year’s Sziget festival playing live, and it wasn’t that good… Time to Pretend however is a great song, it’s addictive and innovative. I just love to hear that song, however, the rest of the album is kind of crappy… but this one is worth for the 9th place.

8 – Kings of Leon – Sex on Fire
Kings of Leon is a decent band in my opinion. They make good music, but they are far to be my favorite. However, there is this Sex on Fire song. I can’t hate it, even though I tried it, but the power of the song (especially the vocals) is just too tough to fight against. Great song!

7 – Vampire Weekend – A-Punk
Everyone loves Vampire Weekend, and I have to accept that, since they do bring new colors to the scene. A-Punk is one of those simple songs you can hear for the first time and start to mumble it for hours. The Video for the song also deserves a special award, because that is fantastic too!

6 – Metallica – Day that never comes
Metallica is BACK. Nothing more needs to be told, they are simply back, and they are closer to their roots than ever. StAnger was a good album, Death Magnetic is a great album. Not The Best of their material, but it’s the Metallica we’ve been waiting for.

5 – The Killers – Human
Killers are back again with an album which is softer than anything they’ve done. Human is easily one of their best songs they’ve ever came up with. The Rest of the album is on the other hand nothing more than decent shit.

4 – Paramore – That’s what you get/Decode
Paramore gets one place here with two songs. That’s what you get is not just a song that’s on my list here for this year, but it’s an alltime favorite. Simple and catchy, and fun to hear, while decode shows the group’s harder and darker side. I just love the guitars and Hayley’s vocals in this one. Hope to see them on a live concert once next year.

3 – R.E.M. – Hollow Man
One of my best concerts this year was REM’s Sziget performance. They also played my favorite song from their new album: Hollow Man. Great song, great feeling, easy to remember. REM is a legend, and their song Hollow man shows that they still can create Greatest Hit material.

2 – Kaiser Chiefs – Never Miss a Beat
This years BEST concert for me was the Kaiser Chiefs’ performance. And that’s it. They are one of my favorite bands and Never Miss a Beat shows why exactly. Fun song, lots of jumping, and just fun fun fun. The new album is great, this song is great, KC are great!

1 – Snow Patrol – Take back the City
I have to admit, I don’t really like the other songs of Snow Patrol, but with Take back the City, they’ve created a song that has the most catchy tune of the year for me. I just can’t stop listening to this song… it deserves to be the best song of the year… for me.


Obtained: Kaiser Chiefs – Enjoyment

March 12, 2008

Ave it!!!!!I never really thought I would have a passion for Concert DVDs, but ever since I bought the Muse – Absolution Tour DVD I kinda got addicted to the stuff. It’s great background stuff which you just watch with your peripheral-sight, while doing… homestuff like washing, cleaning, ironing, etc. Although sometimes I just put in some music and start to celebrate my lack of rockstar-being with the Guitar Hero guitar… I still think of this activity as homedoing stuff.

Anyways, yesterday I bought the Kaiser Chiefs – Enjoyment DVD which consists like 90 minutes of live footage plus a documentary movie. The first thing to notice is that there is NO DVD menu… you try to access it with the Menu button on your remote, but all you get is the freakingly hilarious message: “Behave yourself and return to your seat“. So where the hell is the Live stuff? Where is the concert? You have to sit back and realx, because the documentary is superb for hardcore KC fans. It’s full of fun and full of mutherfucking mary poppins… england! It’s so full of British, that it even hurts my lungs because of all the laughter. After watching the stuff you’ll be able to check the DVD manu and access the Live footage, which is also great stuff, but since there are like 209 minutes of awesome material burned on the disk, it’s not going to impress you in a way like Mse – Hullabaloo. The sound is not that great but it’s still worth it. I gave like 10 euros for it, and it’s more than what you’d expect for this money.

With all it’s extras, it’s a great stuff with great footage, and most of all: it’s full of Kaiser Chief fun. Worth to buy for all of those who really like them.

And of course they’ll be coming to this years Sziget Festival! Lot’s of Nanananana to be expected!


No stop: Kaiser Chiefs for President (or für Kaiser…)!

First Sex Pistols, than Kaiser Chiefs… We have a line up now with R.E.M., Iron Maiden and the other two british supermusicawesomeness.
