High Cost of Living

Spin magazine just came out with their 20 Best Songs of 2008. I'm not going to pretend to be down with what the cool kids are listening to, but I do have to comment on one song in particular. Spin's #10 song is "High Cost of Living," by Jamey Johnson. This is a great, great country song about regrets caused by drug and alcohol abuse.

I appreciate the fact that Spin is trying to cross musical genres. There is a lot of alternative rock and hip-hop on this list, most of which I don't know, but I'm glad they threw in a country tune too. And a damn good one at that.

I'll have my 20 Best Songs list up some time before the new year. I'm still trying to figure out my top ten albums of 2008. So far I have it narrowed down to 33.
