Songs Songs Songs

I heard "Love in the Club" earlier this year and immediately fell in love with it. It became an anthem for my last semester of college. I played and sang along to it at every party. A girl pointed out at a party that you could easily sing my name along to the part where Ursh sings "watchin', watchin', watchin". So it got even better. I know it's an incredibly shallow song, musically. There's one hook repeated over and over and over (a hook lifted from Garage Band, which prolly makes it even better, actually)really . But what a hook it is. This song to me is all-out ecstasy. There were lots of songs I loved this year, I could easily stretch this list out to 100, but "Love in the Club" made me happiest the most. Here's a list, along with a somewhat terribly tagged but still very useful imeem playlist. Have a really great Christmas, folk.
