Mendelssohn: Mr. Eleganza!

4. Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning – Alan Jackson – Perhaps it is impossible to write about 9-11, this is a terrible song. It is so thick it makes my skin crawl, this guy dowsn’t know the diference between “Iran and Iraq” and he is proud of it – F

5. Worst Behavior – Drake – This song is so tough – A

6. Queenie Eye – Paul McCartney – Wings-y in its own way – B+

8. Sophia – Laura Marling – I like the way she moves from sing to speak in the live version – A

9. Clean Getaway – Maria Taylor – So so so pretty – A

10. Fucked Up – JD Samson – Brilliant buzzed out modern techno sex song – A
