Tony’s Top Twenty Tracks for 2008

I think we’re past the point where you can do reviews of 2008 (look forward, chaps, forward) but for the sake of posterity I’m posting my top 20 most listened to tracks of that year, according to Last.fm

So, basically, a big year (in my head) for M83. Burial, Crystal Castles, Santogold and The National were my big discoveries of the year (the latter two don’t feature in his list, but may have done if the rest of December’s data was in the mix). Portishead’s return was utterly triumphant – lovely…

Actually this chart goes up to December the 6th, which is when my MacBook Air issues became so bad I stopped using it (more or less) and so my iTunes stopped reporting back my listening habits. The MBA’s still with the fellas at the solutions-inc support centre (in fairness they’ve only had the machine since just before Christmas) who are consulting with the dark masters at Apple about what’s plaguing the thing.

: : I’m Blipping out the tracks on my Blip.fm profile if you fancy a listen… Very self-facilitating-media-node, I know…
