A few days ago, a very nice Muuser contacted me to thank me for publishing the Top Singles of 2009 list and inquire as to why I don’t publish lists more often. Frankly I have no idea, so I figured I’d start making lists on a more regular basis.
From now on (read: until I forget next week), I’m going to post the top five tracks I’m digging at the moment at the start of each week.
Yes, I know I have a last.fm account that could just as easily provide that information, but a play count doesn’t necessarily dictate my swooning accurately.
Without further ado, the first installment (of many?) this way cometh:
MuuMuse Approved Tracks for the Week of March 28, 2010
5. JES – Awaken
Moody, atmospheric dance. Smarter than your average trance.
4. Linda Sundblad – Damage
A minimal, tripping synth beat builds up in the best way possible as Sundblad goes through the woes of a love in crisis. Robyn-esque!
3. Diana Vickers – The Boy Who Murdered Love
Not only a killer melody, but some of the finest pop lyrics I’ve heard in a while. “You’re the boy who murdered love, cold hands and a heart of stone / You’re a Midas in reverse, you’re the king of pain and hurt.”
2. Gabriella Cilmi – Love Me Cos You Want To
An aching, brilliantly burning 21st century torch song. Gorgeous and heartfelt.
1. Sophie Ellis-Bextor – Bittersweet
A true disco gem, both modern and timeless. It’s set to become the official MuuMuse summer anthem of 2010!
