J’en peu plus – musique 2008

It just dawned on me that my university GPA would’ve been much higher if I didn’t spend so much time at the library discussing music over homework and scrolling through music blogs instead of Virtual Campus. Oh well, I ended up graduating with a good GPA and a HUGE music collection. So huge in fact that my Macbook Pro went from 100GB to a mere 12GB. Thank you Morisset library for 1) the inspiration and 2) bringing people together during the most social time of the year, finals. I will forever be thankful to you and to the University of Ottawa’s disastrous VPN client.

So as 2008 comes to a close, I begin thinking back at all the songs that I obsessed over throughout the year. These are the tunes that kept up with the loop button on the ipod (which likes to freeze on shuffle mode and ends up stopping during a great tune, leaving you incapable of completing your magnificient dance moves).

Compiling this list also made me realize that I listen to way too many remixes (Arty are you nodding in approval yet?). Sometimes I forget what the original sounds like altogether. This list is seriously, in the words of George Michael, for the feet. Please note, some are old school songs but were on repeat nonetheless! Also note that when reading through this list, make sure your body parts are coordinated and 100% focused because they’ll all be taking part in the dance marathon you’ll be participating in afterwards. Without further adue, here’s the list that’s more essential than the BBC radio 1 mixes. I would like to dedicate this to Bear, Arty and Dre, all who have strong connections to this list even though we are all at various corners across the world.
