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.
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
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
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.
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
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
Album: Megalithic Symphony
Why: Epic, awesome, catchy.
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.
