Ten Weekly Favorites (3)

I haven’t done one of these in awhile, so I had a lot of songs competing to be on this list. These are the best of the best from the last couple of weeks.

1. Explorers

Artist: Muse

Album: The 2nd Law

Why: This is my favorite track off The 2nd Law, although “Follow Me” and “Unsustainable” also were almost on this list.

2. A Rush Of Blood To The Head

Artist: Coldplay

Album: A Rush Of Blood To The Head

Why: I love Coldplay’s album closers. This one is beautiful, I particularly love the lyrics and the build. One of Coldplay’s best and very underrated.

3. Diane Young

Artist: Vampire Weekend

Album: Modern Vampires of the City

Why: It’s catchy, its new, and I like it.

4. Hard Enough

Artist: Brandon Flowers

Album: Flamingo

Why: Finally bought this album. Even though I love Brandon, I was so hesitant about his solo project because it’s not The Killers. This is my favorite track so far– great lyrics, almost made me tear up the first time I heard it. I’m pretty sure its about his wife. The rest of the album however… I’m still hesitant about. I’m still listening to it.

5. Get Lucky

Artist: Daft Punk

Album: Random Access Memories

Why: This is not the type of song I would think I would like… but I really do. This song alone is okay, but I put it here because it has got me listening to more Daft Punk and expanding my musical taste. And they’re pretty good, as the rest of the world seems to already know.

6. 1996

Artist: The Wombats

Album: This Modern Glitch

Why: I love the Wombats! They need more fans. They’re like the Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, etc. And this is a song that just makes me want to dance.

7. The View From The Afternoon

Artist: Arctic Monkeys

Album: Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not

Why: It was so hard to chose my AM song for this week, but this is one I currently cannot stop playing!

8. Little By Little

Artist: Oasis

Album: Heathen Chemistry

Why: Bought Heathen Chemistry this week after hearing only this song. Loving the album but this is still by favorite song.

9. Not Your Fault

Artist: AWOLNATION

Album: Megalithic Symphony

Why: Epic, awesome, catchy.

10. Elizabeth

Artist: The Airborne Toxic Event

Album: Such Hot Blood

Why: Best song off Such Hot Blood. ATE is one of my favorite bands. This song is absolutely beautiful, as is the album.
