Fever Ray - If I Had a Heart
Also winner of my music video of the year award. What can I say? It's dark. It's simple. It's awesome. It's my song of the year. I also had fun translating the lyrics into other languages (Si j'avais un coeur, je chanterais! - ...I'm not even sure that's correct heh). Still to come: Klingon translation.
Grizzly Bear - Two Weeks
First time I heard this was when I saw the video on youtube, I think it was in the summer. Laughed at the crazy vid, forgot about the song. Then at the end of the year, I picked up the Veckatimest album, and completely fell in love with the song. I can understand why people don't like it (especially Grizzly Bear fans!) but to me, it's close to being a perfect pop song. It's simple, and it gets stuck in your head, and it isn't nearly as annoying as the usual repetitive pop song.
