Way back in 2003, before Kid was Kid, Husband made a list of the best songs of 2003 (I had to go to the Wayback Machine to fish out this link. Five years in Internet Time is like 500 years in real life). If you scroll down through the comments, you’ll see that he put a lot of work into it, ranking, playing songs, re-ranking. It took him weeks, and he posted it to his blog that about 10 people read.
Why did he do this? Just for the love of the music, for the love of lists, for the love of rankings. It’s his thing. And unlike almost everybody else in the world, now it is his job to do exactly his thing. Lucky bastard.
And I present to you, the official iTunes Canada list of the best alternative songs albums of 2008. Golden.
UPDATE: Here are the best alternative songs of 2008.
