The Votes Are In: The Best Breakthrough Album and "Everywhere Song" of 2008

The Votes Are In: The Best Breakthrough Album and "Everywhere Song" of 2008

In my best of 2008 polls, you sounded off on the music that kept you rocking all year long. Which artist had the best breakthrough and which song did you never mind when it got stuck in your head? Read on . . .

Best Breakthrough Album
Leona Lewis, Spirit

Most of the artists in this category got great feedback in the comments, but it was Lewis's Spirit that ultimately surged ahead with a little more than a quarter of the vote. Behind Lewis, it was a virtual tie for the second spot between MGMT's Oracular Spectacular and Katy Perry's One of the Boys, with Vampire Weekend's self-titled debut not too far behind.

Best Everywhere Song
Coldplay, "Viva La Vida"

Apparently, most of you didn't mind too much that "Viva La Vida" was everywhere this year — it won this poll with a solid 20 percent of the vote. Just a couple of dozen votes behind was Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl," with Leona Lewis's "Bleeding Love" in third. After that, three songs were bunched close together in the voting: Britney Spears's "Womanizer," Rihanna's "Disturbia," and Estelle's "American Boy."

I can't agree with the Leona Lewis win because I think her voice is annoying...but that's me.
