1. Lavender Blue (Dilly Dilly) – Burl Ives – Not only was Ives an exquisite singer but this English folk song, dating from the 1700s, is completely timeless; it shoots through over 300 years of nursery rhymes and travelling minstrels completely in tact. Perfection – A+

2. J.A.R. – Green Day – This song is so great I forgive Billie Joe nearly everything because of it – A+

3. Into You feat Ashanti – Fabolous – This is so good it could be early Usher if Usher rapped – A

4. Just Another Night – Icona Pop – Off their flop first album yet another great single – A

5. Different Days – Jason Isbell – The descending notes on the chorus are like the passing of time – A

6. The Way We Make A Broken Heart – Rosanne Cash – The seven year ache comes to fruition – A-

7. Summertime – Pete Seeger – A singalong? A singalong. Wait, a singalong??? – B

8. You’re Tripping – The Queers – Awesome drummer, they will be playing this live next friday – A

9. White Freightliner Blues – Townes Van Zandt – As Steve Crawford noted elsewhere, this song plays itself – A

10. You Should Be Dancing – Bee Gees – Is the word, it will make you do exactly what it is telling you to – A
