NOVAJAVABLEND #24 [03.26.10]
I’m ambivalent about “Top” lists because people rarely make the distinction between declaring something a “favorite” versus saying it’s “the best.” So I’m going to make the difference clear from the outset to avoid any confusion, since poor comprehension is just as bad as illiteracy: I’m not saying these songs are the best of the year, they are simply songs that I played over and over again and/or that resonated with me the most. If my favorite Kool-Aid is Purplesaurus Rex, it does me no good when someone says it “should” be strawberry. That’s their business.
So here’s my list, in no particular order with handy Blip.fm links since this is what I spent a good two hours doing today. Enjoy!
*5 of these songs are designated as my “Top 5″ here.
**Used the word “best” in my blip description which may conflict with my screed at the beginning of this post. Leave me alone.
Please press “play” to listen to this song I actually like! This is a remix for Anto Vitale and Tamara Wellons’ “Out Of This World” by Carlos Mena. The original version had a shuffling baritone horn in the chorus that gave me life. But! Now we have sexy percussion and delicate keys that set the mood nicely for adult people. If you do not wish to read about House music on this website, may God be with you in all your future endeavors. Thanks!
