Bye-bye 2007, Hello 2008 and Other Song Leftovers from 2007 – S3E09

Happy 2008 and a first post to start off the new year. What I ended up doing on New Year’s Eve?
In the morning of NYE, I was listening to Capital Radio from London, UK and they were counting down their Hall of Fame Top 500. Here’s the link of their Top 500, http://www.capitalradio.co.uk/Article.asp?id=537028.
Yes, I did hear Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin.

Got to check out the fireworks at Major’s Hill Park at 18:57pm. It was The Grand Finale – Downtown Musical Fireworks. It was to close out the 150 Anniversary of Ottawa being chosen as Canada’s capital. It was a cold time having to wait for it. At least the weather was not as bad. Overall, the fireworks were nice to watch.

Oh yea, from my music picks of 2007. I forgot to leave out some other songs that were popular but they were not part of my picks.

Irreplaceable by Beyonce. It is also Billboard Hot 100 Singles of the Year for 2007
Hey There Delilah by Plain White T’s.
Beautiful Girls by Sean Kingston. Those two songs almost annoyed the heck out of me because they were overplayed like crazy
The Sweet Escape by Gwen Stefani featuring Akon.
Glamorous by Fergie featuring Ludacris.
Girlfriend by Avril Lavigne.
Suburban Knights by Hard-Fi.
LoveStoned/I Think She Knows by Justin Timberlake.
Icky Thump by The White Stripe.
Another album that I totally forgot is the excellent artist, M.I.A. She released her second album, Kala, with rave reviews.
