Rehab- Amy Winehouse
The first time I heard it, I thought I was listening to an unknown classic Stax single from the mid-60’s. Ronson production mixed with Winehouse’s confident soul are riveting to hear.
So Hott- Kid Rock
This just might be the greatest strip club song I’ve ever heard. Hate him if you want, but Bob Ritchie makes a slammin’ comeback on Rock and Roll Jesus, after a couple pretty weak efforts.
Uncle Sam Goddamn- Brother Ali
The best rapper in the game today put out this slamming diatribe against what ails him about this country.
Wanderlust King- Gogol Bordello
I don’t know how to explain this group, but I guess I would say they are like if System of a Down decided to become a gypsy punk band and let Triumph the Insult Comic Dog do the lead vocals. I know that doesn’t sound promising, but it works.
Private Affair- The Virgins
I rate this song or Rich Girl by The Virgins as being right there as top songs of 2007. They bring a modern feel to 80’s new wave which has been the formula for some of the best music of the past 3 years. The video reminds me of something the Dark Bros. would have done, maybe around the time of New Wave Hookers.
