Top 5 of 2009: Songs/Albums

Pop Culture, Soundtrek

Thanks to Winstone over at The Couch Sessions I compiled my Top 5 songs/albums of 2009 (actually without Winston I wouldn’t have even considered the feat).

True Pop is self-contextualizing. My “best of” list reflects those works that built this year in pop culture, by reflecting the end of an era – of shallow celebrity veiled behind assumed artistry. Pop done right is cohesive, not fragmented, and neither are its masterpieces. Pop done right is an atmosphere – artists create their own world. Below are 2009 Pop best artists’ songs in relation to albums – not songs, or albums, and artists. My top 5 best reflect the year they dictated: 2009 – The Death of The Fame’s Fear.

“D.O.A. (Death of Autotune)”/The Blueprint 3 – Jay-Z

Hov on that new sh*t n*ggas like how come/ N*ggas want my old sh*t, buy my old album
N*ggas stuck on stupid, I gotta keep it moving/ N*ggas make the same sh*t, me I make the blueprint

“Bad Romance”/The Fame Monster – Lady GaGa

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Got no direction, just got my vamp/ Take a bite of my bad girl meat, take a bite of me
Show me your teeth

“The Fear”/It’s Not Me, It’s You – Lily Allen


I don’t know much, but I know this for certain/ And that is the sun poking its head round the curtain
Now please can we leave? I’d like to go to bed now/ It’s not just the sun that is hurting my head now
I’m not trying to say that I’m smelling of roses/ But when will we tire of putting sh*t up our noses
I don’t like staying up, staying up past the sunlight/ It’s meant to be fun and it just doesn’t feel right

“Colourless Colour”/La Roux – La Roux



My reflections are protections/ They will keep me from destruction
My directions are distractions/ When you’re ready, come into the light

“Man in the Mirror”/This is It – Michael Jackson



A willow deeply scarred/ Somebody’s broken heart
And a washed-out dream/ They follow the pattern of the wind, you see
Cause they got to place to be/ That’s why I’m starting with me

  1. i’m rather torn about the Bad Romance video. The song’s catchy, that’s for sure, but the video is just psychotic. Sometimes in a good way, other times I’m like, girl was it really necessary for the plot to revolve around you being sold into some kind of Russian Mafia underground sex trade?

  2. Jay-Z and Jackson post humous? You should be kicked out of human civilization… 😛

    heh heh…

    I am sooo tired. I need a hug…*sniff*
