In less than a year Welsh gal Duffy has been propelled to stardom on both sides of the Atlantic. This song is about her split from a lover and whist filming in the back of a black cab Duffy unexpectedly burst into tears. It makes for video gold

Chris Martin and his gang made a triumphant return with this single in 2008- initially released as a free download. The promo introduced fans to their new military look and confirmed that the four-piece are still one of the biggest bands in the world.

Of all the artists you expected Kanye West to work with in 08 Estelle was certainly unlikely. This number one hit saw him rapping about Great Britain over a house influenced Will.I.Am beat. Estelle herself returned the favour crooning about yanky blokes.

This is the track that catapulted Leona from reality show winner to the new Whitney and became an anthem for broken hearted women nearly as powerful as I Will Survive. Lewis sparkles in the video wearing a bling-tastic dress and is set to shine for years to come!

Katie and Jules were inspired by Kung Fu Hustle when coming up with the idea for this effects heavy video. With its pulsating beat and catchy refrain the song announced the duo's arrival as a premier pop group both here and in the US- where it featured on a high profile ad campaign.
