The Elite 8: Captain Conor's Top Songs of 2008

The big college basketball tournament is down to the Elite 8 and it got me thinking of some elite songs that came out in 2008 ... hard to believe that was  10 years ago ...


 8. If I Had Eyes - Jack Johnson 

If I had eyes in the back of my head there would be so many benefits of it, except of course the actual look of it. 



7. Lay Me Down- The Dirty Heads
This California sounding song featuring Rome from Sublime really makes me want to lay on a beach with a corona and lime in my hand.  




6. Human- The Killers
“Are we human or are we dancers”, still unsure how to answer the question.  I always thought why can’t we be both?




5. A-Punk- Vampire Weekend
This song is one of Vampire Weekends most well known songs and really made you fall in love with their sound.  Also - this video kicks a$$




4. I Will Possess your Heart- Death Cab for Cutie
A great song from a great album and definitely delivers a strong message. Also, I feel like my crazy totally sane ex girlfriend might have wrote this song. 



3. Believe- The Bravery

Great song by a great band.  This jam got The Bravery on the map and the recognition they deserved. 



2. Sex on Fire- Kings of Leon
Lets hope you don’t actually feel like something is burning, if you get what I mean but this song was a classic hit when it came out.




1. Viva La Vida- Coldplay
The instruments in this song make the song as great as it is and is the reason it is at number one.
