December is list-making season. And for us music journalists, it is a time to look back on scores of albums, reflect upon the music and recapitulate our favorites. But this year, just like the last, we took this opportunity to flip that tradition upside down, asking the artists that influenced us what influenced them. The prompt was not limited to albums that came out in 2008.

This last year we were one of the first to review North London's "acoustic troubadours" Broadcast 2000 and we loved them (to say the least). Now, they've got a song on the latest Apple Macbook commercial!
