my most recent top 3:

haisai ojisan‘ – shoukichi kina

woke up to this on the radio thursday morning. kfjc 89.7fm. i find myself compelled to dance and sing to it.

yellowcake‘ – kaki king

got this from the girlfriend. for such a soft song it sounds so great at the level of unreasonably loud.

show me what you got‘ – jay z

i was underwhelmed at first but i am whelming up to it. the making of found here is helpful, especially the full tracks for the samples down at the bottom. don’t miss ‘shaft in africa’.
