Best of 2008...Music

Category: , By Christian
A set of list for you today. The best of Music.

My Favorite Bluegrass(ish) Songs. A list inspired by my recent weekend at Winfield. Admittedly, not all of these songs are true bluegrass, but they are all inspired and all of the heez.

L. Vertigo (stripped banjo mix) - Bono and The Edge
K. Idlewild Blue - Outkast...Any hip-hop group that can use bluegrass is getting it done creatively.
J. I Want to be Ready - Ben Harper and the Blind Boys from Alabama
I. Landslide - The Dixie Chicks...Apologies to Stevie Nicks, but this version is better.
H. The One that Got Away - Pink...Oh man, I can't wait for her new album to drop.
G. I Saw The Light (Live) - David Crowder Band
F. The Fox - Nickel Creek
E. The Long Way Around - The Dixie Chicks
D. Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven - David Crowder Band...The line that best sums up American Evangelical Christianity. "Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die"
C. Black Horse and the Cherry Tree - KT Tunstall
B. The Lighthouse's Tale - Nickel Creek...They might not play it live anymore, but it's still da Bomb
A. Callin' Baton Rouge - New Grass Revival

Favorite Songs to Play on Guitar Hero III

  • Miss Murder - AFI
  • My Name is Jonas - Weezer
  • Barracuda - Heart...Have you ever seen this video? Hilarious.
  • When You Were Young - The Killers
  • Cliffs of Dover - Eric Johnson
  • La Grange - ZZ Top
  • The Metal - Tenacious D
  • Sabatoge - Beastie Boys
  • Welcome to the Jungle - GNR
  • The Devil Went Down to Georgia - Charlie Daniels Band...Perhaps the greatest moment in video game history. To beat the game you have to out-duel the Devil (who you have sold your soul to). From this point on, nothing that Guitar Hero or Rock Band do will live up to that storyline.
Songs I Want James Taylor to Cover - James Taylor just released an album of covers. Good move, considering he can sing songs better than 90% of the people who originally made them famous. However, the set list did not live up to my expectations. Some glaring omissions include...

~Christmas in Hollis - Run DMC
~Cows With Guns - Dana Lyons
~Comfort Eagle - Cake
~Boom - POD
~Biochemical Equation - Wu Tang Clan
~Man in the Mirrio - Michael Jackson
~Rompe - Daddy Yankee
~technologic - Daft Punk
~The Anthem -Good Charlotte

    i recommend CHICKEN FRIED by the zac brown band. I'm not quite sure if you'd call it blue grass, but i love it!
