2. These Days – Monica Mancini – The late great Henry Mancini's daughter, gets every drop of melancholy off the cover, especially the pause between "don't confront me with my failures " and "I have not forgotten them". If that doesn't ring a bell you are having a better life than am i am.
3. Manhattan (I'm done) – Old 97's
4. Rocky's Theme – Rocky Business – Former Shinobi joins forces with dynamic front man for rock/rap duo growing into band size.
5. In The Meantime – Dolly Parton – "Let us not fear what is not clear…" Good advice.
6. Natural Rhapsody – Jonathan Wilson
7. Over Here – David E. Beats – Pretty good but he has better in the wings.
8. These Days (Live From Winter Gardens,) – Joy Division – This is dance as reflected by punk. So far before its time.
9. Ghetto Dreams (feat Nas) – Common
10. Man Can't Surf – Fidlar – Bass/drums are crunchy, and the tempo is a beat slower.
