Readers select the best song of 2008

30 12 2008

Rolling Stone magazine asked its readers what the best song of 2008 was. They picked The Killers song “Human.” Some of the other songs that made the Top 25 were “If I Were A Boy” by Beyonce (ugh) and “A Punk” by Vampire Weekend (good choice).
I like the Killers song (sounds really retro 1980s — and I mean that in a good way). But my favorite retro-sounding song was the contagious song “Shake It” by Metro Station. However I thought the best song of the year was “Viva La Vida” by Coldplay. It’s punk rock with a string quartet with lyrics that sound like something out of The Bible. When else has there ever been such a combination?

Tell us what you thought the best song of the year was.

And you can check out some possibilities for song of the year. Click on the arrow on top to see The Killers song “Human.” Below that is a great live performance of Coldplay’s song “Viva La Vida.” Underneath that is the music video for the song “Shake It” by Metro Station.

The Next Big Thing: Metro Station

30 12 2008
Metro Station

Billy Ray’s boy: Trace Cyrus (far right) carries on the family tradition with Metro Station

WHO ARE THEY?

A band of LA teens who could be the missing link between Fall Out Boy and High School Musical.

WHY THE FUSS?

The quartet are fronted by Trace Cyrus, 18, son of country singer Billy Ray and brother of Disney starlet Miley. Their first album, boosted by U.S. Top Ten single Shake It, has already been a hit in their homeland. Now they have the UK in their sights.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

Trace, originally from Nashville, met guitarist Mason Musso on the set of Miley Cyrus’s Hannah Montana TV show (Musso’s brother, Mitchel, also appears on the programme). The pair were working in shopping malls  –  Cyrus selling trainers, Musso baking pretzels  –  but they bonded over music and decided to form Metro Station, roping in keyboardist Blake Healy and drummer Anthony Improgo to complete the quartet.

WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?

They played their first gig in a church in front of seven people in 2006, but most of their early activity was on the internet. Their upbeat pop song Seventeen Forever was a MySpace hit. A deal with Columbia subsidiary Red Ink followed.

AND THEN?

The band began gigging in earnest, supporting Good Charlotte and playing a secret show with Beck in LA. Their self-titled album, recorded in New York, made little impact on release in 2007. But the chart success of Shake It this summer propelled their yearning, emo-tinged anthems into the hearts of American fans.

WHAT NOW?

With their album out here in March, Metro Station are setting up a UK tour for January, with dates to be announced shortly.

Shake It With Metro Station

30 12 2008

Queensland, get ready to shake it with Metro Station.

The punk rockers from the States are coming to Australia to support The Veronicas on their national tour. And if music industry sources are anything to go by, there are going to be more punters buying tickets to catch the Californian four-piece than there will be Veronicas fans. Their debut single, Shake It, has spent 22 weeks in the top 40 after peaking at number 2 and their album has also been successful.

The boys from Metro Station had no idea of their popularity in this country, but it became apparent on their recent promotional tour Down Under.

“We just fell in love with Australia,” the band’s drummer, Anthony Improgo, said.

“We didn’t know how big we were. We passed a tanning salon and they were playing Shake It.

“Here in the States, we are pretty big, but I think we are a lot bigger in Australia…kids follow us in airports.”

And it’s no wonder: their distinctive brand of synth pop-rock is very appealing to teenagers who are rediscovering music their parents listened to.

“I think when the album was written, Trace (Cyrus) and Mason (Musso) were 17. At that age, it is honest and I think that’s why kids react to it. It’s what they are going through,” Anthony said.

“When the band first started, Trace and Mason were into synth pop – and then Mason listens to everything from the B52s to Simon and Garfunkel.

“Blake and I are a little bit older: we come from an ’80s Depeche Mode era.”

But whatever it is that makes Metro Station what it is, the formula is working and it is keeping the band busy in the lead-up to their Australian dates. “We are just finishing up our headline tour, then we are doing a radio tour, then we go to the UK with Boys Like Girls for a week and then we go to Australia for a month,” Anthony said.

Their Australian gigs have proved so successful that extra dates are being added to the tour to cope with demand. Whether you are booking your tickets to see The Veronicas or Metro Station, Anthony promises that you can look forward to a pumping live gig.

“The show is definitely high energy,” he said. “The record is very poppy and catchy but live we are a bit more punk rock. It’s a great live show and I throw out drumsticks.

“Sometimes Trace and Mason throw water into the crowd.”

So grab your raincoat and get to the show on February 14. Tickets are available through Ticketek on 132 849.
