Still working our way through the Definitive 200 albums of modern popular music, we've been sidetracked by new ear candy. Among our aural pleasures:
•Champion from Kanye West, because it's a killer Steely Dan riff lift.
•That's The Way (My Love Is) from Smashing Pumpkins. Yeah yeah: Billy Corgan whines. But it's talented whining.
•The Pretender from Dave Grohl's Foo Fighters.
•LoveStoned from Justin Timberlake.
•Well Thought Out Twinkles from Silversun Pickups.
Not on the list is the new Paul McCartney (Nod Your Head sucks) or the new leaked Britney tracks. Even CHATTER has its standards.
