current favourite songs of 2006. I may add a few more at some point (i’m bound to have forgotten some), but here are my current contenders for single of the year… in no particular order:
alesha – lipstick (could this be one of the greatest albums of 2006? I cant wait for it to leak!)
justin timberlake – sexyback (Al Machine, you’re *wrong* this is the best thing he has ever done!)
paris hilton – stars are blind (yes, it sounds like “kingston town” crossed with the ricky-from-eastenders single, but who cares? its fab! and i *really* wanted to hate it)
jamie t – sheila (comedy chav-streets-alike with an absolute cracker of a tune)
pink – u and ur hand (radio mix or the bimbo jones mix depending on where you are listening to it)
rogue traders – voodoo child (izzy from neighbours does this years flashdance/i like the way you move)
xtina – aint no other man (for some reason it keeps coming on the radio/stereo and gets stuck in me and my girlfriends heads all day long)
nelly furtado – maneater (again, al – youre wrong. i was bigging this up back in january or so!)
lily allen – smile (starting to get sick of it now it went to no 1, but its still a great debut single)
christina milian – say i (i love big production like this. i’m a sucker for that sort of sample)
rihanna – SOS (again, something i was playing long before radio caught up and kinda killed its appeal. its still a great floorfiller though)
jurassic 5 – get it together (storming album track, if this isnt a single, theres no sanity in music)
wigwam – wigwam – betty boo and that geezer from blur in a comeback that was so spectacularly disappointing (sales/presswise) that i wouldnt be surprised if they disappear again. which is a BIGSHAME!
rachel stevens – i said never again (but here we are) – ace. just ace. thats all you need to know!
sugababes – red dress (didnt have quite the impact i thought it would on the charts. possibly due to the delay in releasing it due to mutya leaving and amelle re-recording it. ah well, its still fantastic!)
shout outs to the I Monster-ripping “daydream” off the new Lupe Fiasco album and “we are your friends” by justice vs simian. I want to put it in this years list, but seeing as ive been playing it for over two years, im not going to bother.
