– – – BEST OF 2008 – – – –
Robyn – this woman is gold. Her live show in LA (which you can view here) was amazing. My bestie and I danced the night away, and even got to party with her at the after-party. Cobrasnake and Perez Hilton were there too. Her self titled CD (which was originally released back in 2005, but had a US release year of 08) is by far the best CD of the year.
Anyway, since her release isn’t really this year’s, I decided the make the list above..
