2007-12-24inevitable: the top-ten list allow me to jump on the bandwagon. for the first time, i will make some kind of year-end list. inspired by my cousin's list, i shall list my favourite songs of 2007.
most of these don't have official videos. and these are youtube links, because it's easy. sorry for the shitty quality...
in alphabetical order:
beirut - nantes
this was filmed while the band played on the streets. very spontaneous. it sounds amazing for a live performance.
bright eyes - four winds
i am not much into the folk/alt country stuff. i admit, i like this song only because it is bright eyes (conor oberst).
explosions in the sky - the birth and the death of day
i was slightly disappointed with the new album. still, this is a strong opening track. no official video, so a live performance will do.
gogol bordello - wonderlust king
a fun song, that is all.
matthew good - born losers
no official video. there was some kind of contest. this is the winning entry. notice when she does her coke lines on matthew good's book, at 1:25. eargasm at 3:44.
nine inch nails - survivalism
yes, i still like nin, despite him not releasing anything as epic as 'the downward spiral' or 'the fragile'. avert your eyes, this is the official (non-censored) video. (seriously, why the censure? this video is not that scandalous...)
patrick wolf - accident & emergency
eye candy. eye candy. eye candy.
stars - take me to the riot
it's a sweet song.
ted leo - a bottle of buckie
no official video; this is a solo live performance, which is probably better. a great song. but the audio track on this skips...
the weakerthans - tournament of hearts
album version of the song. just listen to this while staring at some album art.
