Alright, here are my music picks (old and new tracks) for this month: I've provided links to check out a sample, whenever possible. Tracks marked with † are available on iTunes.
Fergalicious by Fergie - Yeah, her solo album is hit-and-miss, but this is one of those tracks that just rocks the house. Contrary to what I've been hearing/reading, this song does NOT sample JJ Fad. This is an easy mistake to make, as the track has that ol' skool booty-bass sound to it. The song sample (the most) in "Fergalicious" is "Give It All You Got" by Afro-Rican †
Never Win [Radio Edit/Mirwais Remix] by Fischerspooner -- a kickin' breaks-inspired electropop anit-victim song. Sweeet. †
Girls Can Be Cruel [Extended Dub/King Unique Mix] by Infusion - This song has a very unusual cadence to it, and I could listen to it again, and again. †
Shine [Freemasons Remix] by Luther Vandross - the Freemasons are my favorite remixers at the moment, and they've really outdone themselves with this one. A must-have for old scool house fans. †
Deja Vu [Freemasons Remix] by Beyonce - another killer remix from the 'Masons.
I Don't Feel Like Dancing by the Scissor Sisters - it looks like this album may go big, and this tart, BeeGee's inspired song may be just the trick. †
These Are The Days [Vocal Mix] by Quiiver - Yes, I spelled the name of the group correctlee... but seriously, I haven't heard anything from these guys in almost 4 years, but this is as good as anything they've done in the past. They're like a more talented version of Dirty Vegas.
Bossy [The Scumfrog Remix] by Kelis - still rockin' my iPod, all these months after I picked this track up.
I Think It's Gonna Rain... by Mama Cass - Cass Elliott. 'Nuff said.
One Headlight by The Wallflowers - for some reason, this song came back into my mind, and the lyrics fascinate me now more that when the song first came out. †
Twist In My Sobriety by Tanita Takaram - this is a realy departure from what I normally listen to, but I found this artist on Tiga's iTunes playlist, and fell in love with this song. †
