As the year is about to end, it’s time to elect which songs, movies, books, games, consoles, albums etc. has made it as UnaX.dk Best or UnaX.dk Worst! As I’m Danish (like you hadn’t guessed that already?!), most of the categories will be in both ‘Danish’ and ‘Foreign’, as I get to chose even more things then…
I guess it’s always hard to decide on which things have been the best or worst, but I’m pretty sure in my choices, so let’s just go ahead with the music part of my ‘awards’:
UnaX.dk Best Danish Album: Suspekt – Prima Nocte – It’s nice to see the ‘kings of Danish hip hop’ back on the stage, with great dim lyrics, you just can’t stop to think about.
UnaX.dk Worst Danish Album: Tina Dickow – Count to Ten – This must be one of the most hyped, crap albums to ever be released. Tina Dickow should be shot out of a canon and forced to listen to her own crap on repeat for the rest of her life!
UnaX.dk Best Danish Single: Alphabeat – 10.000 Nights of Thunder – I’m not sure why, but this track is just so annoyingly catchy, that it’s hard not to like it. This recording is from Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen 22nd of June ’07.
UnaX.dk Worst Danish Single: Tina Dickow – On The Run – This is what you get when a song is played too much in the radio, on television and everywhere else. I don’t understand how Tina has made a career for herself and honestly I’d like to duct tape her mouth, so I would never have to hear this track again!
UnaX.dk Best Foreign Album: Radiohead – In Rainbows – This is, in my opinion, one of the best albums Radiohead has ever released, melodic as always and the gimmick of giving the album away for free or whatever you felt like paying (I actually bought it for £7.99!) was amazing. Even though comScore.com claim that Americans pay more (£3.94) then the British (£2.47), it’s still a great sale for them.
UnaX.dk Worst Foreign Album: Rihanna – Good Girl Gone Bad – This type of music just doesn’t cut it for me. It’s horrible crowd pleasing and the lyrics are plain dumb and pointless. I promise you already, that this wont be the only UnaX.dk Worst award Rihanna will win!
UnaX.dk Best Foreign Single: Nelly Furtado – All Good Things (Come to an End) – I must admit that I’m not normally a big fan of Nelly Furtado, but this track has a really pleasant sound to it. The fact that Nelly Furtado just looks amazing too, is always a plus…
UnaX.dk Worst Foreign Single: Rihanna – Umbrella (Feat. Jay-Z) – Again we have a track from the worst album, making the worst single too. Just as Tina Dickow, this is a ridiculous and overplayed track, which only has made one of the most played songs due to the fact, it featured Jay-Z. Listen to the lyrics for a moment: ‘You can stand under my Umbrella – (Ella ella eh eh eh) – Under my umbrella – etc. etc. etc…’ What is the point of this? I personally think that Rihanna should send all her love to Jay-Z that he has the star appeal to make this song remotely bearable for some!
Finally I’d like to make a ‘special’ award thingy, for the best concert I’ve seen this year (and as I’ve only been to one, it’s not hard, but the concert where more than excellent!). It goes to none other than: CocoRosie who absolutely took VEGA in Copenhagen with storm! That concert had everything to enjoy, apart from being a tad short in my opinion!
So enjoy this read for now, and more will come, before the year is over…
