2006 Music Postacular #3: Top 10 Songs

December 26th, 2006 Posted in Music

My year end music postacular continues with my favorite ten songs of 2006. The first two posts in this series are my favorite older albums that discovered in 2006 and my favorite guilty pleasures of the year. As I normally do with singles/song lists, I’ll follow each song with a favorite quote from the song. Top ten songs of 2006, after the jump.

    Too young

    Gnarls Barkley – Crazy
    St. Elsewhere
    Downtown


    My heroes had the heart to lose their lives out on a limb

    And all I remember is thinking, I want to be like them

    Ever since I was little, ever since I was little it looked like fun

    And it’s no coincidence I’ve come and I can die when I’m done

    But maybe I’m crazy

    Islands

    Islands – Rough Gem
    Return to the Sea
    Equator


    The world beat you for the something nice

    You worked hard, died poor

    You mined what you died for

    Diamonds



    You can whistle my name

    It’s the mines in Africa that are to blame

    You can scoop out my brain

    Shape it into an ear and then tell me your pain



    Held death at bay from first day

    Stayed awake, stayed awake

    The rabbit was removed under the whole moon

    Long bird, short road



    Dig deep but don’t dig too deep

    When it’s late you’ll see the hole is empty, and oh so deadly

    They want me raw but smooth like glass

    They want it fast but they don’t want flaws

    I’m a girl’s best friend

    Can you cut?

    I can cut

    ‘Cause I’m a rough gem



    Who lives in those lights in the distance?

    Watered down, the rain will help you out

    I had a dream it was all a dream

    But it was ruined by the sun shining through me
