Devra's Top Ten Electro Songs of 2008

10. La Mer (Hot Pink Delorean Remix) – The Victorian English Gentleman’s Club
I am walking into the party. I am on amphetamines. It’s like that Epic Adidas Party commercial, and I’m fucking David Beckham.

9. When We Were Young (Shazam Remix) – Sneaky Sound System
If I were alive in the 80s, this song would probably give me nostalgia. But I wasn’t, so it just gives me orgasms.

8. Runway to Elsewhere (Breakbot Remix) – Pacific
The only thing that could make Pacific better is Breakbot. Two of my favorite bros combine to create something that sounds like a bunch of lesbians under a waterfall, in white t-shirts, on xanxex. Giggling.

7. Sapphire – p e a c e FIRE
Twelve-ish minutes of musical adderall. Put this on and write your paper. Put this on and clean your room. Put this on with the intention of throwing down, because the synth will give you a semi.

6. Fascination – La Roux
When Abercrombie & Fitch becomes electro in 2k12, they will play this song in every store, and they will be handing out Sparxx with every neon v neck/moose logo they sell. And it will be fucking great.

5. Valve – Redial
120 miles an hour on the Garden State Parkway. Lines on your dashboard. Fistpumping. Word.

4. La Mano Mia (Cecile and Bloody Beetroots Remix) – Bugo
This is the song that will play when you beat the video game that is life. Sephiroth is dead. You rescued Princess Peach. You’re tittyfucking Zelda, and it is perfect.

3. Sweaty (Shazam Remix) – Muscles
Anyone within a forty mile radius of me knows this song makes me want to fuck kittens. I love this song. It is cotton candy, it is cocaine, it is an absolutely boss.

2. Lion (Breakbot Remix) – ZZZ
When Mozart turns neon, this will be the first thing he bangs out on a midi keyboard. It is epic. It is driving. It’s not really a banger, but I can definitely still get down to it.

1. Shooting Stars – Bag Raiders
This is. The Best Song. Of 2k8. The louder you play it, the better it gets. The breakdown is absolute bliss. It’s like a shooting star. Do yourself a favor and play it.

Okay, now play it again.

I just don't see how you can put shooting stars as number 1...It's a great song, but just not #1 status.
