Ripping an idea from The War on Pop and a series called "Repeat Offenders" I have decided to list some songs that I have been listening to a lot over the last couple of weeks.
The first two songs have gotten some playtime in a large part because of my recent reading of the Pitchfork Media Top 100 Tracks of 2009, part of their Year in Music. The other four have just been played a lot, and, in some cases, probably far too much so.
Phoenix - "1901"
Some may recognize this from a Cadillac car commercial.
Fuck Buttons - "Surf Solar"
The best in synth-noize rock since, well, Fuck Buttons. Penguins are a plus too.
MGMT - "Kids"
Hearing this song some time ago is probably the only reason I had for checking MGMT at all, and I'm so happy I did.
Guru Josh Project - "Infinity 2008"
Heard this song while spending a month in the Netherlands about a year ago. There is something about the whole European house and techno music thing that gets me.
Ke$ha - "TiK ToK"
This is where I run into the problem of overplaying something, but this song is just so catchy. It is top 40 for a reason, right?
Lupe Fiasco feat. Nikki Jean - "Hip-Hop Saved My Life"
Competes with "Dumb it Down" for my favorite song on "The Cool".
EDIT: I compiled the songs on YouTube into a playlist. Seen here.
