Re: “Top of the Pops in 2012

Uhhhhh, mat (with only one t for extra cool points!) catastrophe (I have a hunch --and it's only a hunch-- you have tattoo of your name plastered in big letters somewhere on your scrawny multi-pierced body), it's hardly cribbing from NPR if I become aware that the list even exists from you after I've posted. And, after looking at NPR list, I did notice that 2--and only 2-- of my selections (Jack White and Spiritualized) happened to appear on it. No cribbing, just a coincidence of good taste. Oh, and what you term "pop music" is laughable. Alabama Shakes? Yellow Ostrich? Heartless Bastards? Justin Townes Earle? Slightly Stoopid? The Divine Fits, etc,etc? Not even on a dot on the pop spectrum. For a self-proclaimed "contrarian" who loves "disorder" and "chaos" (oh my what a rebel) you're about as dangerous as a fart in a wind storm. With all your discord and confusion, try to catch a clue my man.

Re: “Top of the Pops in 2012

You gotta be kidding me! This sludge is supposed to be THE BEST of 2012??? Based on the sampling above--what a godawful year for music. Seriously, you found better stuff on your "search for junk" in the city than you have on this list. I thought City Paper was somewhat "cutting edge" but I was sorely mistaken. Here is only a partial list of the Best Songs of 2012:

1. "Would That Not Be Nice"--The Divine Fits
2. "Sixteen Saltines"--Jack White
3. "You Aint Alone"--Alabama Shakes
4. "Elephant King"--Yellow Ostrich
5. "Stay At Home"--Yellow Ostrich
6. "Caught Me Thinkin"--Bahamas
7. "Mean to Me"--Ben Kweller
8. "Parted Ways"--Heartless Bastards
9. "The House That Heaven Built"--Japandroids
10. "Unfortunately Anna"--Justin Townes Earle
11. "Submarines"--The Lumineers
12. "Primitive Girl"--M. Ward
13. "Don't Stop"--Slightly Stoopid
14. "Hey Jane"--Spritualized
15. "Brenda"--Todd Snider
16. "Buttons"--Weeks
17. "Say for Certain"--Generationalists
18. "Already Yours" Bahamas
19. "Whistle Clap-Hey"--Lucy &the Cloud People
20. "He Gets Me High"--Dum Dum Girls

2012 wasn't lame, just y'all were.

Re: “The Top Albums of 2011: Part 7

Why is CP picking top albums when no one buys entire albums anymore? Most of the albums listed in these stories contain at most 2 or 3 good songs and the rest are filler. Next year, let's try to get into the 2000's and pick the best singles. Oh, by the way, my favorite singles from the past year are as follows (in no particular order):

"Pulling on a Line"--Great Lake Swimmers
"No Nostalgia"--AgesandAges
"Came out of a Lady"--Rubblebucket
"Pouring Rain at Dawn"--The Jayhawks
"Nobody Knows"--The Feelies
"Keep You Right"--Blind Pilot
"Santa Fe"--Beirut
"Rider"--Okkervil River
"First Light"--My Morning Jacket
"Black Treacle"--Arctic Monkeys
"Israeli Caves"--Maps & Atlases
"Swim"--Surfer Blood
"Ever Falling in Love"--Times New Viking
"Mountainside"--David Vertesi
"The Last Ride"--Soldout
"Siyahamba"--Flying Jazz Queens
"Ndapera Cha Cha"--George Sisimayi and his Crazy Five
