3. Who's Your Daddy - Benny Benassi
2. Speed Rail - Tiësto
1. Benassi Bros. - Castaway
This year was an excellent year for techno. If you look at the track listings throughout these three videos, you can see this year was clearly dominated by tracks by or remixed by Benny Benassi or Bros. I found that Benny Benassi has this magical beat and ability to get you fist pumping like theres no tomorrow.

3. This is...I'll say is one of Benassi's Best...not just because the very sexualized Music video with all the hot chicks, but just because of its beat and very european theme. January of this year I went over to Europe for the first time, and I remember listening to this while sitting on the tour bus watching the sites of London, the English countryside, and Paris. Amazing!!!
(Note: Im aware the video and audio is very screwed up, Windows Movie Maker butchered the timing for some reason)

2. For awhile now, Tiësto had been making tracks more mainstream, with lyrics and such, something that didn't seem to fit my taste...suddenly, he answers with this amazing track! While it's simple, it's still amazing, for the main reason, it's very trancey because if you listen sort of, you can visualize a train arriving at the station at about 2:28. 2:46 it's leaving, and at 2:57 it takes off and now is cruising at it's cruising speed. Later, at 4:28 it stops at a station, 4:42 it begins moving as it begins to accelerate. 4:58 you can hear it just reving to full power and at 5:11, it just takes off and rides the rails. This quite the achievement for Tiësto, and hopefully will revive his old ways of trance, and less mainstream lyrical idea.

1. Here it is! The best of the best! This song is magical, like so many of the other songs on here, you can dance to it, drive your car super fast at night to it, and even kinda workout to it. But what makes this song so special is the visuals that come to mind when I listen to this song. When the song slows down at about 7:22, I just imagine calming scenes like northern lights, stars at night, beaches of desert islands, many things. The picture at 10:06, is precisely what I imagine from this song, someone, is a Castaway on some random island, where all they can do at night is look up at the sky that is dotted by stars, northern lights, and even enlarged planets. This song is truely amazing, and definately deserves the number 1 spot on this top 10 list.
and yes to all you extreme techno song know it alls, I'm sorry if I didn't get a title of a song right or give proper credit to an artist...the point of this video is to just sit back, and watch some fitting pictures illustrate a song.
