“As true as thunder crashes, Itty Bitty Kitty,” Cat King bellowed, “you will be safe with me tonight.”
Jay Z – Kingdom Come
Like the man says, “It ain’t for everybody.” However, if I could write rhymes the way this guy does I wouldn’t be writing Top 10 lists.
Scissor Sisters – Tah-Dah
I was introduced to this band by a friend whose sexual preferences are somewhat different than mine. However, musically we are in bed together.
Justin Timberlake – FutureSex/LoveSounds
Okay. An exception to the Disney prodigy rule. A solid album with a perfect blend of sounds. Even the dancefloor-challenged will find something to move to.
Robbie Williams – Rudebox
American just don’t get Robbie. But I believe he should be the next Bond.
The Who – Endless Wire
No one can compose a rock opera better than Pete. It may take a decade, but when The Who speak, people should listen.
Nerina Pallot – Fires
A pretty voice that needs more USA attention. She should be huge (and not huge in the way that many Americans are huge.)
Elton John – The Captain & The Kid
The name is not said in “cool” circles. Look, the guy can write and sing better than any number of Disney prodigies. If it weren’t so, why is he still around?
Son of Rust – Six Years of Gene Therapy
As yet undiscovered. Great electronica that is well produced and just plain fun to drive to.
CSS – Cansei de Ser Sexy
Five guys and a girl. What more can I say? A weird South American release on Sub Pop.
Dragonforce – Inhuman Rampage
Every top 10 needs one of these. There are no words to describe the manic guitar work on “Through the Fire and Flames.” If you need a reason to hate metal, this is it!
