Fred goes to work now.

Re: EOY-List POPMATTERS (Singles)

American Boy at no. 1 and no Mercy at all. I don't get it.

Duffy's Mercy has not been included in ANY of the lists so far (Blender, Grammy, Popmatters, Observer, Gaffa and Intro)!

A first sign of a combined list of acclaimed songs from 2008:

1. Estelle feat. Kanye West - American Boy
2. MGMT - Time to Pretend
3. Hercules And Love Affair - Blind
4. Lil Wayne - A Milli
5. Santogold - L.E.S. Artistes
6. Kings Of Leon - Sex On Fire
7. Coldplay - Viva La Vida
8. Portishead - Machine Gun
9. Hot Chip - Ready For The Floor
10. Sigur Rós - Gobbledigook

Portishead rule (at least given the competition in this list).

Re: Re: EOY-List POPMATTERS (Singles)

"Mercy" has made a few lists now, but it certainly isn't getting nearly the acclaim that it deserves. "Mercy" was one of those rare instances in my book when a timeless, amazing song took the world over by storm.

Estelle is truly, truly awful. That a song that bites the music from Will I Am is getting this much acclaim is disturbing.
