What can I say, its been their year. Something about that song gets me dancing. Got to love that jacket Karen O is wearing in the music video.
Catchy rock-pop tune by the amazing and talented Joel Plaskett
For those who aren’t aware or surprise with this band. They are instrumental Toronto band fronted by Paul Aucoin who plays the vibraphone.
Something about this track is so dramatic and haunting.
In replacement, the only official music video the band has done is Drain The Blood. So enjoy this music video.
Don’t Haunt This Place is one of my favorite songs of 2009. Love the drum beats.
I decided to have a tie since I wanted to have both songs in the Top 10.
A very trippy music video. The song is very catchy and banjo is killer.
This Thunder which I simply love this song, just speaks to me. The video is so retro-cool to homages of European films. A perfect poppy Canadian song.
DANCE PARTY!!! The song has some meaning since its about what it was like being sixteen. The music video is very funny and quirky.
Something about this song when you listen to it. You’ve been transported back in the early 1900s
Ohbijou does it best with New Years. I find the video cute when the volcano explodes.
Something about this song just sticks into your head.
Song that hit #1 in UK with no collaboration. Its dance at its best in 2009.
Now I have to finish off the Decades and Best of 2009 shows.
