GEORGE CLINTON – Atomic Dog
A funky song about a human urge "… why must I chase the cat? Nothin' but tha dog in me"

BASEMENT JAXX – Raindrops
I'm a sucker for electronic music and this one does not disappoint

THE WHO – Happy Jack
I'm also a sucker for durms. I choose to believe Keith Moon passed out on stage because his drum sections were so complex. Not because he was intoxicated.

PHOENIX – Love Like A Sunset, Pts 1 and 2
Another electro tine. The first part almost feels like it belongs on Air's Talkie Walkie. Part 2's more in the vein of the rest of Phoenix's new album.

DIRTY PROJECTORS – Useful Chamber
Best song on the best album so far of '09. It's amazing to hear so many genres of music shape shift in one song.

THE ROLLING STONES – Emotional Rescue
When Mick Jagger sings a disco song, is it really disco?

DONNA SUMMER – I Feel Love
Brian Eno described this song best back in 1977: "This is it, look no further. This single is going to change the sound of club music for the next fifteen years."

BELLE & SEBASTIAN – Stars of Track and Field
Sometimes it's what you don't say that makes the most powerful statement. Belle and Sebastian are masters of this genre.

GRIZZLY BEAR – Foreground
This song makes me sad, but a happy kind of sad.
