3. Jesus Remembered Me -Hank Williams – Off the new radio program discovery, and really, everything he sang had so much character it was filled with meaning even when it wasn’t…. This one was… – A

4. When The People Cheer – The Roots – Wow, a Roots song that doesn’t completely suck. Nice piano motif – C+

6. Do It Again – Röyksopp And Robyn – Pretty excellent electro pop – B+

7. All My Teklife – DJ Spinn – Beyond dramatic, a thundering Asgardian track – B+

8. Tuna Melt – A-Trak – One of his better  beats is squeaky and tasty – B+

9. Be My Girl – Jim Dale – This was, unbelievably enough, a hit in 1957. Even by Brit rock 1957 standards, he has no voice for it – C

10. All I Want – LCD Soundsystem – Great song, and the backing vocals make it a very good version – A-
