2008: The year when Barack Obama and Joe Biden were first elected, winning against John McCain and Sarah Palin (but not before lots of memes were created). Michael Jackson was still alive. American Idol was still popular featuring judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson with contestant David Cook winning. Disney's "Wall-E" and "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" came out. Crazy times.
Surprisingly some pretty good music also came out of that year. Although they may have come out a decade ago, these songs from the Billboard Hot 100 in 2008 are still faves that everyone can't help but sing and dance along to. These songs are perfect crowd-pleasers for long road trips or backyard barbeque parties.
