Re: Your Top 5 Songs of 2006

Here's my Top 5 in no particular order:

1. “When You Were Young” – The Killers

A great single from their follow-up to the Hot Fuss album.

2. “Sex ‘N Money” – Paul Oakenfold feat. Pharrell Williams

In my opinion THE best dance track of the year. Sure, Brittany Murphy’s vocals on Oakenfold’s “Faster Kill Pussycat” are mind-blowing, but this track takes the cake, leaving you Hot! Hot! Hot!

3. “SexyBack” – Justin Timberlake

Holy crap. I first heard this on the dance station here way back and later come to realize it’s Justin fucking Timberlake. Eh, I still like it. Props to Timbaland on production.

4. “Tear You Apart” – She Wants Revenge

They’ve been compared to Joy Division, and they rock. I first heard this quite a few months back on the alternative station here in Phoenix and instantly grew fond of it.

5. “White And Nerdy” – “Weird Al” Yankovic

Don’t call it a comeback! He’s been here for years! And finally cracked the U.S. Top 10. Awesome work, Al. Looking forward to what you bring to us in the future.

Honourable mentions go to the following:

“Suffer Well” – Depeche Mode
“Promiscuous” (Ralphi Rosario Mix) – Nelly Furtado
“Faster Kill Pussycat” – Paul Oakenfold feat. Brittany Murphy
“Love Don’t Let Me Go” – David Guetta
“Who’s Your Daddy” – Benny Benassi
“Ring The Alarm” (Freemasons Club Mix) – Beyonc?
“D?j? Vu” (Freemasons Mix) – Beyonc? feat. Jay-Z
“Tracking Treasure Down” – Gabriel & Dresden
“Straight To Video” – Mindless Self Indulgence

Re: Your Top 5 Songs of 2006

Crap, I totally forgot about "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley. Top notch tune.

Re: Your Top 5 Songs of 2006

01 |
- All Saints

The comeback hit for this British/Canadian quartet. Knocked off "Black Coffee" to become my all-time favourite All Saints song


02 |
- Meck featuring Leo Sayer

An update of Leo Sayer's 1977 hit "Thunder in My Heart". Originally, isn't one of Leo's best known hits, barely breaking the Top 40 in the US/Canada. This remix hit #1 in the UK. The original 1977 version can be seen



03 |
- Kelly Llorenna

Kelly is a trance artist, evident with her years as voice of N-Trance, but for this song, she took a crack at disco and the record buying public did not agree (apparent from it's non chart placing in the UK). It was big in the clubs though


04 |
- Loleatta Holloway

Originally a disco hit in 1980. Was sampled in 1989 by Black Box (
) and again in 1991 by Marky Mark (
). This remix is by Hi Tack



05 |
- Mobile

Rock band from Montreal. The original version (which can be seen
) is the one that charted, but I just like the remix so much more. The video is fantastic!




Honourable mention ...

- Tragically Hip

They hail from my hometown, have been putting out hit records since the late 80s, and are now the most successful band in Canada. I have never liked them at all, until I caught the video for this on TV one night. Damn, it's just so catchy!
