As 2008 winds to a close I always like to think about the year in music. This year seemed to be the year of the catchy song eg: "I Kissed a girl" by Katy Perry, "Sweet About Me" by Gabriella Cilmi (I suggest America keep their ears open because Gabriella is heading their way) and plenty of other songs thst were catchy enough to hit the top of the charts. We also saw plenty of instant success for newcomers like Cilmi, British band The Ting Tings and The Presets (Check out The Presets album "Apocalypso", it won Album of the Year at this years ARIA awards" It was also a massive year for superstar Rihanna who is probably the biggest name in the world at the moment as she continues to churn out hit after hit even if the songs don't hit number one, you can always guarantee that there'll be at least one song by Rihanna in that top 10 somewhere while Maroon 5 continue to be the most overplayed band on Australian radio. Another superstar who continues to dominate the Australian charts is Pink with many of her songs either hitting number one or the top 10 and there is nothing to suggest that it won't continue in 2009. However there is no one defining song of 2008, many of the hit songs released this year are memorable in one way or another and someone should suggest to Madonna that it's time she stopped dressing like she is 19 and dress to suit her age. Some of the outfits she wore were seriously creepy.
