Free translation? Goodbye Simonue… no don’t thank us

1. More Than – Au Revoir Simone – This reminds me of all those indie pop bands with a touch more better living with electricity thrown into the mix. Sort of Pains of Being Pretty At Heart – B+

2. Canarsie – Spanking Charlene – This sounds like modern punk, like they could be on Don Giovannu Records, albeit with longer breaks – B+

3. I Gotta Feeling – Black Eyed Peas – With the help of David Guetta, they changed electronic music in one fell swoop of sample and song.Bggest song of the 00s – A+

4. Valerie – Mark Ronson and Amy Winehouse – And speaking of songs that changed the landscape, this was so big Ronson has been entirely incapable of replicating, or do I mean emulating?, it – A+

5. Lay Me Down – Avicii – The only time Avicii comes within a mile of those two hits is in this new by the numbers house track qwith a taste of the blues  – A-

6. Unhappiy Married – Pistol Annies – Still makes me laugh though all these country girls really do is make me wish Natalie Maines would tour – B+

7. TKO – Justin Timberlake – Coochie coochie coo – B+

8. Spanish Harlem – Ben E. King – This song is better than “Stand By Me” – A+

9. Spanish Harlem – Bob Dylan – An answer song thoughBiob might not have known it – A

10. Muswell Hillbillies – The absolute zenoth of Ray Davies gifts, a song of so much loss and longing and a aphorism we should all remember: “If life’s for living, what’s living for?” –  A+
