Top Music of SYTYCD Season 7 – So Far!

The music has been so incredible already this season, before the live performances even begin!! I thought I would put together a Top 26 (for the number of All-Stars/Contestants) list of songs from the season so far. This is based on YOUR clicks, so it doesn’t count those songs we’re all dying to download, but can’t yet (i.e. Shawn McDonald’s “Hope”).

Maybe you can use this list to make a SYTYCD Season 7 playlist for yourself. 🙂

22. Kill Hannah’s “New York City Speed” – Kill Hannah - Wake Up the Sleepers - New York City Speed
23. Max Richter and Dinah Washington’s “This Bitter Earth/On the Nature of Daylight” – Max Richter & Dinah Washington - Shutter Island (Music from the Motion Picture) - This Bitter Earth / On the Nature of Daylight from the “Shutter Island” soundtrack.
24. Craig Armstrong’s “Ruthless Gravity” – Craig Armstrong - As If to Nothing - Ruthless Gravity
25. DeVotchKa’s “Queen of the Surface Streets” – DeVotchKa - Una Volta - Queen of the Surface Streets, which I listed mistakingly instead of “And the Winner Is” –
26. Lil Wayne’s “Da Da Da” – Lil Wayne - Rebirth (Deluxe Version) - Da Da Da

The difference between #26 and #27 was only 1 hit, so, a lot of the songs that I didn’t list have also been popular. Like, Juliana Joya’s “Something About You,” Juliana Joya - Something About You - Something About You which came close, but was used later, so it probably hasn’t picked up the steam that “Spinning Around” has. Incidentally, almost all of these songs are now listed first on the artist pages, which leads me to believe all of our traffic is helping the artists, as well!

Want to know what other songs Season 7’s given us so far? As we progress through the season, you can find all the Season 7 music here. Didn’t see your favorite on the list? Love one of the songs? Let us know in the comments. Enjoy!!

Shawn McDonald in regards to “Hope”

So there was this one song that Haylee Durbin danced to at the Dallas Auditions that everyone wanted… eventually it was determined by commentor Jonathan to be a Shawn McDonald song.

I decided to send Shawn a letter a la Emilie to Dave Tweedie in hopes to gain some additional information.

Unfortunately, in this case… we are not able to gain a free mp3 download. However what was told to use is the following:

It was Shawn’s song but unfortunately it’s not yet available for purchase. The label has the completed record and we’re hoping for an early 2011 release, if not sooner.

So, we have to sit and be patient til next year for a copy of the song. 🙁 But gaining a response is better than none at all I would think?

June 8, 2010 I Written By

My life can be summed up in the following two quotes: 1) "I am married to engineering and am its faithful wife by day, but at night my wanderlust takes hold and the arts becomes my jealous paramour." and... 2) "Engineering is my safety net. Writing is my passion. Acting is my escape when the other two become too much." So where does dancing fit in? Pretty much anywhere at this point... =)
