Dear Thursday: The Best Songs of 2009

Again, I’m pretty sad that I gave indie music such short shrift this year, and I really hope to correct that in 2010. But that all excused, here’s my nominees for the best songs of 2009:

Best Pop Song: “I Gotta Feeling” by The Black Eyed Peas. I remember listening to this the morning before I went to the hospital to have Betty. And I imagine that it’s probably an awesome soundtrack for getting ready for a night of clubbing.

I Gotta Feeling – Black Eyed Peas

Best Rap Song: “Kiss Me Thru the Phone” by Soulja Boy Tell Them. Oh come on, don’t try to act like you’re not in love with this song, too!

Best R&B Song: “Sweet Dreams” by Beyonce. Basically, I just go out of my mind every time this jam comes on the radio. Plus, Beyonce dressed up like a robot for the video. I mean what more do I have to say?

Sweet Dreams – BeyoncĂ©

la-rouxBest Indie Song: “Bulletproof” by La Roux. Yes, I chose this song because the singer’s hair is just so frickin cool on this single cover. But the song is pretty good, too.
