Favorite Singles From 2008, Part 3

  • The Walkmen - "In the New Year"

  • TV On The Radio - "Family Tree"
    “What Coldplay would sound like if they were black.” -Alan

    (Okay, this video isn’t of the whole song, and has nothing to do with TV on the Radio, but if you don’t shed a tear then you have a cold cold soul.) - Brasilliant

  • Coldplay - "Viva La Vida"
    “I realize this probably costs me cool points, but of all the songs released this year, this one is about the catchiest -- and not in an annoying way. This is what I love about Coldplay, catchy but not annoying, easy-listening but not KWAV-y. What can I say, I'm not that complex when it comes to music.” -Jeremiah

    And just because...

  • Frightened Rabbit - "Old, Old Fashioned"
    “‘I'll turn off the TV/ It's killing us we never speak.’ Light some candles and dance around, son.” -Thecranewife

  • Kings Of Leon - "Closer"
    “Amazing sound. Better on the album than live, but still spine-tingling.” -Nightrain

  • Of Montreal - "An Eluardian Instance"

  • Panic At The Disco - "Nine in the Afternoon"

  • Passion Pit - "Sleepyhead"
    “The short but sweet ditty that has stuck in my head day in and day out for the last few weeks. Thanks to Stereogum for turning me onto this.” -Tex

  • Ra Ra Riot - "Too Too Too Fast"
    “After hearing forever about these guys I finally listened to them. This song floored me. Great walking music if you want to be somewhere in a hurry.” -ancientindianwizard

  • Ryan Adams - "Crossed Out Name"
