By Rob Cohen, 1:43PM, Mon. Jan. 2, 2012
Hey Mr. DJ, put these records on, I wanna dance with my baby. Here are the favorite songs of 2011. Lists by The Glitoris, Mouthfeel, and me. Enjoy.
"Midnight City" – M83
Mellon collie and the infinite Eighties.
"The Wilhelm Scream" – James Blake
Mr. Blake invites us to fall in and with beats this dreamy how could we say no?
"Cruel" – St. Vincent
In this age of cyber-bullying and class warfare, Annie Clark gleefully asks, "Why can't we all just get along?" with a knife behind her back. Watch out for her guitar riffs, they just might cut you way before the words do.
"Dystopia" – YACHT
You all can have your culture war, Jonah, Claire, and I will be dancing until the world ends, and after if we can. The earth is on fire, indeed.
Lotus Flower – Radiohead
You'd think Thom Yorke has everything he could want, but he's got to have the moon on a stick. He can have it, as far as I'm concerned.
