Top 100 Songs of 2008: 100-71

As promised (even though not asked for, or cared about) here is the start of my favorite songs from the year that was 2008. In keeping with a normal trend a larger portion of the list(54%)if from female artists than male(46%). Bucking a past trend, however, is the fact that England came in second to the US in the number of acts posted on the list, with 14%. That balloons to 19% if you count the UK total including Wales and Scotland. In a year when Inky and I went to Australia, you would think that it would have gone up, not down, but alas it has slipped to 3rd place with 9%, dropping from 23% last year.
