TGWOOfY Top Songs of 2008, So Far.

Yesterday I posted my 10 favorite full records of 2008, but as I have said, this year has been much more of a singles year for me. To that end, my top 50 songs through the midway point of the year come from 50 different artists. Seven of my top ten songs are from my top ten records, but the rest of the list is as varried as I've ever had. Of the 50 songs, 29 are by American acts, 8 are British, 6 Australian, 2 Canadian, 2 Sweedish and one each from Scotland, New Zeeland and Isreal. 28 of the acts are female, which contines a long lasting trend for me of favoring female singers.
