TAPE DECK SHUFFLE
In our new feature 'Tape Deck Shuffle' we give you the playlist of our favourite songs this week. 'Side A' features some latest cuts, while the classics make the 'B Side'.
CEE-LO GREEN-F*** YOU: It may be 'old' as hell in this new year but we aint forgetting this one quick. From award shows to All-Star performances Cee-Lo is keeping his middle finger up to the haters with this gamble of a track that's paid off...BIG!
KANYE WEST-CHRISTMAS IN HARLEM: How does a Christmas song still sound hot even when the Winter months are warming up? When Kanye West is on it with an All-Star cast featuring nearly ever Dipset member for a diplomatic, feel-good heater.
NE*YO-ONE IN A MILLION: Valentines may now be a distant, week-a-go memory, but that doesn't mean you still can't step it up for the one you love and sentiment like this is how you do it.
BRUNO MARS-MARRY YOU: Speaking of devotion, this engaging track from the singer married to the lyrics is the perfect bell ringer for anybodies big day.
TANK-SCREAM: An even more prolific writer then Mars this underrated talent is finally getting his dues with an emotionally loud ballad that is speaking volumes for Tank's new album.
GINUWINE-SO ANXIOUS: Our man of the moment changed the game again, with a slow burner that ignited up the charts.
MUSE-EXOGENESIS SYMPHONY PART 3 (REDEMPTION): Currently giving the 'Never Let Me Go' trailer heart, this fans favourite might be the most beautiful piece of music you've ever heard from a rock band.
MARVIN GAYE-GOT TO GIVE IT UP: This is got to be one of the best party records of all time, and I mean a real party, a soulful one. This soul classic is funky and catchy from beginning to end, and I'm talking about the 11 minute version.
JOHNNY CASH-GOD'S GONNA CUT YOU DOWN: If the new Cohen Brothers Western remake didn't look epic enough, adding this song to the trailer made it a straight shooter for the box office. A classic American recording. True Grit indeed.
RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS-STRIP MY MIND: Similar to Cash, this song was banked on by the movie 'The Fighter' for a pivotal scene. Boy did it pay off, this album classic is a knockout.
