Ooh...that's my JAM!

Can you believe that 2009 is already Half over?

And remember in January when you made a list of goals to have accomplished before the year is through...and haven't been able to even check ONE of those goals off? SLACKER!

Well, since we are at the midway point, i decided to take a look at my iPod and see what are my most played songs of 2009 so far...

Now...I am not necessarily saying that they are my favorite songs of the year; they just happen to be the ones that I must've played the most. So clearly I enjoy listening to them...i mean, come on...these are some DAMN good choices!

They also, in my opinion, accurately portray where I am right now in life. Oddly, there aren't really any love songs (probably because it's been soooooo long that I've been in love that I've become numb to love songs! he he...), no break-up songs (once again...if I haven't been in love, i haven't broken up with anyone!), and only one Lady Gaga song? What???

In true countdown style, here are the Top 10. If you don't have these songs yet, DOWNLOAD THEM! :)

#10. "Heavy Cross" by The Gossip
When Beth Ditto belts the lyric, "i checked you..." I feel empowered everytime! :)

#9. "The Promise" by Girls Aloud
Just a fun pop ditty...but very sexy & very infectious!

#8. "Jesus Doesn't Love You" by Dragonette
This is one of my favorite songs ever! It's a carry over from 2008, but still a great song to run to...or dance around naked in your living room to!

#7. "Work" by Jars of Clay
Interesting video, but I like the song much better without having seen the video. This jam has me hooked, though!

#6. "Don't Stop Believing" by The Cast of 'Glee'
Oh...don't pretend like you didn't fall in love with this version of the song, too! You know you watched the premiere of 'Glee' repeatedly and then downloaded this song immediately after!

#5. "Use Somebody" by Kings of Leon
My most 'vulnerable' moment here in the list...yes, I admit that the lyrics of this song do get me a little choked up. Excellent song that has been on repeat for a while now!

#4. "When Love Takes Over" by David Guetta featuring Kelly Rowland
Ever since i first heard this song last month, i was IN LOVE! Kelly Rowland looks and sounds incredible here! This song is definitely my new favorite JAM...i can't stop listening to it! SONG OF THE SUMMER!

#3. "Poker Face" by Lady Gaga
I mean...come on... Do i really need to explain this one?

#2. "Raindrops" by Basement Jaxx
Ooh wee, T-Shane! After a couple of listens to this song, you will be subconsciously moving every part of your body to the slammin' chorus! Trust me!


#1. "The Fear" by Lily Allen
Whether you love her or hate her as a person, it doesn't matter when it comes to her music. Her new album is one of the year's best, and this first single was the catchiest little ditty! Great song that apparently I've played more than any other... Enjoy!

  8. Sweet, James. I like a lot of those artists, so I can't wait to download and listen to the ones that I don't have yet.

  9. I hate how blogger just barely cuts off the slightly larger video, forcing its users into the smallest size.

    I was a huge fan of Kings of Leon this past September- unfortunately I overplayed their CD.
