The Twelve Days of Christmas - # 6

Song of the Year - # 6

House of Cards - Radiohead

This song comes from the album In Rainbows that Radiohead released on their own with the 'pay whatever you want and download it' from their website in 2007. On January 1, 2008 the cd was available for purchase in stores and so I was torn as to when to claim this album was released - 2007 or 2008... My decision was to compromise and take the album off of the list but keep this song. And since this is my blog the ruling of the field stands.




The Album of the Year - # 6

Kings of Leon - Only By the Night


The Followill Brothers were featured on the Skog Blog in September on New Music Monday when this album was released. Only By the Night is the fourth album by the KOL and just like the others, did not disappoint in the least. In fact my only complaint with the KOL this year is that they didn't come to Salt Lake City on the first leg of their tour. Flanksteak and his sweet bride were able to make the trek down to Las Vegas and were greatly pleased with what they saw. Seeing the Kings of Leon live caused Mrs. Flanksteak to become so obsessed with the Brothers Followill that she spent the next several weeks on www.kingsofleon.com. No sleeping, no eating, just KOL 24/7. This album should come with the parental advisory warning "this album will take over your child's life..." Listener beware.

What are the chances that you will post something that I recognize and/or agree should be in the top ten? I'm just wondering since we're running out of days here...

Did George Strait release an album this year? Garth Brooks? If so, sorry they didn't make the list. Discuss.

The Vegas show made Mrs. Flanksteak choose Mr. Followill as her new #1 "Get out of Marriage Free" card beneficiary. I chose our next door neighbor for mine. I think mine has a more realistic chance of happening. Discuss.
