5. Kite - Ways To Dance

Nicklas Stenemo’s latest project--more electronic and weird than the Mo, but just as poppy. Gotta love those drum rolls at the beginning.

4. Ladyhawke - Back Of The Van

The song that first introduced the world to Ladyhawke, it’s also the most insistent and emotional of her singles. A mixture of synth-ballad and dance, it soundtracked the entire year and I still love it.

3. MGMT - Time To Pretend

The psychedelic indie anthem of the year. Once you get past that enormous synth riff, you’re treated to a chorus full of longing and regret. It’s a magical song, with a sound big enough to tear down the world.

2. The Galvatrons - When We Were Kids

An updated version of Jump-era Van Halen, this track was pure nostalgia. No band this year had more pump-your-fist-in-the-air attitude. I am counting down the seconds until their album comes out.
Original - mp3: Battlestar Acoustica Remix

1. Daggers - Money

The most promising new band on the planet earth, every single one of Daggers’ songs sounds like it could top this chart. Money, though, rightly claims the best chorus of the year. This is epic stuff.

Great countdown!

I just want to add my own ...ehm Top 4 of songs I've discovered through the year 2008 after reading about the songs or artist on your blog:

1. The Daggers - Money (totally agree on this one)
2. The Crash - It's Contagious
3. Private - Killer on The Dancefloor
4. Cut & Copy - Lights & Music

Should probably be lots more, that I don't remember right now
