Top 10 for this week...

It's time for the new Top 10 most played songs from my iTunes. I know you're excited.


1.TV on The Radio|"Wolf Like Me"

This is the best perfectly written song for rock out right now, both lyrically and musically. There is a reason these Williamsburg, BK artists are number one. "Wolf Like Me" is fantastic, that's why.

2.Lupe Fiasco|"The Instrumental"

My favorite track on Food and Liquor, it tells the story of a latchkey kid through the use of manipulating the word box. Lupe is that good, and he's going to tell you via perspective.

3.The Majestic Twelve|"Break It and Breathe"

TM12 are my favorite new band, and it shows. "Break" gives you a great traditional rock song that immediately makes you love your friends.

4.The Majestic Twelve|"American Rage"
5.The Majestic Twelve|"Thank God Everything on TV is a Lie"
6.The Majestic Twelve|"Are You Ready?"

Yes, TM12 are that good and that listenable.

7.Lupe Fiasco|"I Gotcha"
VA stand up, the 7 Cities are on the record with this Neptunes-produced track. It;s got that spacey bounce, and damn it's good. Lyrically, it's a nice little joint you can bump to.

8.Lupe Fiasco|"He Say She Say"
Mr. FNF tells us a story about a kid who has a lot of talent, but the split his parents are going through is making him disinterested and such. Good songwriting from Chi City, once again.

9.The Majestic Twelve|"Condoleeza, Check My Posse"
Fun with satire and a calmed-down hardcore approach to vocals, sorta. Still good, however.

10.The Roots|"Livin' In a New World"
A quick 1:47 track that tells you to put on your high tops and turn up your boombox. Ah, those days.

The Majestic Twelve are really good, you see.
