2008 was my first whole calendar year using iTunes as my primary music player. I've set up a plethora of smart playlists and the like to manage my music (I've got plenty of posts to come about that) but at the end of the year I decided to do my own Countdown.
Unfortunately, each of the lists I made ended up being dominated by one or two albums so I'm left with not very much to say. Instead of a top 10 (with 5 being much the same), I'll just share my most played songs of 2008:
- Top song added to my library in 2008: The Altar and the Door by Casting Crowns (from the album of the same name)
- Top song released in 2008: Runaway by Queen + Paul Rogers (a bonus track from the iTunes version of the album The Cosmos Rocks, which I reviewed here)
At the end of this year when I do this, I think I'll make a rule that only the best song from each artist makes it onto the list. It might make for a more interesting post.
