LEGENDS OF THE FALL: Autumn 2008, Vol. 1

legends of the fall

Sometimes I think I would make a kickass music supervisor someday.

Selecting the right tracks to incorporate into a movie, placing the right hook at the right moment, milking an emotional scene for all its worth...I'd live for that shit.

Ladies and gents, here's your soundtrack to the fall, an eclectic collection of tunes you already know (Mr. Archuleta, I hesitate to put you on here, but you're just so damn irresistible)...and tunes you should know (hello, Black Kids and Alphabeat).

Ready...set...download:

1. "Right Here (Departed)" by Brandy

2. "Save the Lies (Good to Me)" by Gabriella Cilmi



3. "Keeps Gettin' Better" by Christina Aguilera

4. "Spiraling" by Keane

5. "Boyfriend" by Alphabeat - Take Madonna circa 1985, thrown in some male vocals and then shake until all excess sequins and fishnets fall off.



6. "If This is Love" by The Saturdays

7. "Crush" by David Archuleta

8. "Don't Stop" by Innerpartysystem

9. "Full Service" by New Kids on the Block feat. New Edition - You read that correctly.

10. "Hot N Cold" by Katy Perry

11. "Sick" by Sam Sparro

12. "Hit the Heartbreaks" by Black Kids

13. "In Praise of the Vulnerable Man" by Alanis Morissette

14. "So What" by Pink - Shocker - Pink's divorced and pissed, and she's ready to brawl with anyone who gets in the way of her having fun:



15. "I'm Letting Go" by Francesca Battistelli - Sara Bareilles called. She wants her hook back.

16. "Whatcha Think About That?" by Pussycat Dolls feat. Missy Elliot - And the Inevitable Collaboration of 2008 goes to...

17. "Spotlight" by Jennifer Hudson

18. "If You're Out There" by John Legend

19. "Sandcastle Disco" by Solange - Beyonce's kid sis surprises with a retro-funk soul single.

20. "Just Stand Up" by Various Artists - Every pop diva in the known universe takes a lyric in this single supporting the fight against breast cancer. Who da thunk Melissa Etheridge and Rihanna would ever share the same chorus?

21. "Last Goodbye" by Avenue - A less annoying Jonas Brothers B-side with a chorus that heralds the triumphant return of the Boyband.

22. "Pjanoo (Radio Edit)" by Eric Prydz

David Archuleta has a fresh appeal and a talent that cannot be denied. I have been impressed with his growth as a person, and as an artist since his first Idol appearance. It’s good to see someone so young be given an opportunity to realize their dreams, and to have him be as down to earth, humble and as appreciative as his fans are of the success he’s attained. I look forward to buying his album, keeping tabs on his career, and getting to see him perform as a solo artist. WELL DONE David on a great year of surprises and successes - and here’s to many more of the same!
