Maybe the Two Best Tracks of 2009

This dirty hipster has spent the bulk of his adult life trying to sort which music he likes and doesn’t like. At a certain point in 2009 he noticed that his increasingly-stringent filtering process seemed to be limiting his taste rather than cultivating it. So, at the behest of some close and trusted friends, he loosed the chains and allowed new types of music to engage his pallet. With so much effort put into denying that anything created with anything other than a guitar and a blues-based progression could merit remark, it was a difficult transition but; it was ultimately a fruitful one. Being sure to concentrate on songwriting, arrangement and a level of intelligence in newer, poppier, more electronic tracks, this dirty, dirty hipster found two tracks that he’d be sure to have with him on a desert island.

LADY GAGA’S “BAD ROMANCE” – The world’s guilty pleasure is actually a terrific Rock song

YEASAYER’S “AMBLING ALP” – Finally, a song that invokes the sound of the 80’s in a non-faggy, non-lame(MGMT) way

    Not only is Bad Romance a good song, but the music video is just as well made.
