    You know, I had to listen to it a couple of times to really get that rhythm out of it, but yeah, you're right.

    That's high on my list, but my favorite song of this year is Army Reserve by Pearl Jam.

    If you count the video, Shakira's Hips Don't Lie has to be among my favorites.

    Yeah, I'd take just about anything off PJ's disc over almost anything on that list (I liked the Peppers album and the Killers stuff).

    Put me down for Worldwide Suicide. About time PJ released another rocker.

    Ditto on the Killers, and Nelly Furtado also had some good singles.
  7. Catchiest single: "Ain't No Other Man," by Christina Aguilera. Notice I didn't say "BEST." I have a fear that the music snobs would release the hounds if I said BEST.
    That being said, it kinda sounds like a James Brown song, and that's never a bad thing.
    That Keane song, I'm not sure the name, with the video where they're like running through the stage set, is pretty good too.
    Now, will someone go kill James Blunt and Daniel Powter? It's time for him to have a Bad Day.

    Albums that stood out

    "Stadium Arcadium" Red Hot Chili Peppers
    "St. Elsewhere" Gnarls Barkley
    "Broken Boy Soldiers" The Raconteurs
    "Death by Sexy" Eagles of Death Metal
    "Pearl Jam" Pearl Jam
    "Amputechture" Mars Volta
    The single "Wolf Like Me" by TV on the Radio

    Big disappointments
    "First Impressions of Earth" The Strokes
    "At War With the Mystics" The Flaming Lips -- two of my favorite bands drop shitty, shitty albums
    "Modern Times" Bob Dylan -- except for the first track, it's just kind of blah. All the songs seem a minute or two too long.

    What I'm looking forward to in 2007
    new albums from Radiohead, Wilco, Spoon, Interpol, Bloc Party and the Shins. And (hopefully) new records by Queens of the Stone Age and some more archived shit from Neil Young.

    I'll add Jay-Z's Kingdom Come to that list.

    I'll second that. That, and Stadium Arcadium were by far my two favorites of the year.

    The fact I despise "Hey Ya" with every fiber of my being and some I don't even have has led me to be shunned at parties and family gatherings.

    I don't care. I stand strong.

    Give me some sugar. I am your neighbor. All right. All right. All right. All right. All right. All right. All right. All right. All right. All right. All right. All right. All right. All right. All right.
