2007 - a(n) (audible) year in review

posted in Media on December 31st, 2007

After a quick summary of the, according to me, best reads of 2007, it is once again, time for a compilation of the best aural releases from the past year.

Brett Dennen - Ain’t no reason

For one reason or another, many of this year’s top song come from TV shows such as Jericho (more on that later) and The Unit and it comes as no surprise then that the previously mentioned “Ain’t no reason” by Brett Dennen gets the award for best “standalone song from 2007″ from me.

Meaningful lyrics that tell things like they are, not like people want them to be and the song that was used for my impromptu-inauguration at, this was the one song I could not stop listening to in 2007.

Room Eleven - Six White Russians and a Pink Pussycat

The band that made the most impact on me was, without a doubt, Room Eleven with their awesome album “Six White Russians and a Pink Pussycat”. Their live performance was not just okay or good, it was great.

Songs such as One of these Days,
and Come Closer are what music should be about: a great voice combined with great tunes.

Jericho and Portal

Other items that deserve to be mentioned are Portal’s Still Alive - the credits song from VALVe’s puzzle game released in fall this year.

A definite thumbs-up goes out to Jericho’s music team, with hot tracks such as Foo Fighter’s Times like These and Five for Fighting’s World.
