Top 100 Songs of 2008: 70-41

Here is my second of four instalments of the best songs of 2008. I made a solemn vow to buy less records on spec this year, and as such I did a lot more single buying. That is fully evident in the fact that the list features 99 different acts, with only one group, Scotland's Glasvegas, making the list twice. There are 11 different nations represented on the list, coming from four different continents. Here now is positions 70 through 41, enjoy.
