My 10 favorite songs by Seattle artists from 2008

This list is one of many lists that I will post by the end of the year to commemorate my favorite live sets of the year, favorite albums of the year and favorite NW albums of the year. Notice I said favorite, not best.

Here are my 10 favorite songs by Seattle artists released in 2008

The Saturday Knights, “Dog Park:” A fun, playful song by a fun, playful band


Fleet Foxes, “White Winter Hymnal”: This song alone justifies why Fleet Foxes are on so many best-of lists

The Moondoogies “Changing”: Excellent roots rock from a band some consider to be Seattle’s next big thing

Team Gina, “Wife Swapping”: A humorous song about the nature of the lesbian dating scene

Common Market, “Trouble Is”: Rapper Ra Scion and his DJ partner in crime Sabzi at their finest

Common Market “Trouble Is” Music Video from Zia Mohajerjasbi on Vimeo.

Brent Amaker and the Rodeo, “I’m The Man Who Writes The Country Hits”: Fun, unadulterated honky-tonk music

SHIM, “Animal”: A sexed-up love song with a Foghat-meets-Wolfmother vibe

Jake One, “Trap Door”: The pairing of Jake One with MF Doom is one of the many highlights on an amazing album

Dyme Def, “Brain’s Theme”: Definitely the best, if not the first, song to sample the “Pink and the Brain” theme


H is For Hellgate, “Copernicus And Me”: Progressive rock from a band on the rise
