MADONNA, “HOLIDAY” More than 27 years later, it’s still impossible not to celebrate when this comes on.
CEE LO GREEN, “BRIGHT LIGHTS BIGGER CITY”
The follow-up to “F— You” makes every night feel like Saturday night. F— yeah!
BRANDON FLOWERS, “JILTED LOVERS & BROKEN HEARTS”
A cathartic anthem from the Killer’s underappreciated solo debut, Flamingo.
HELLOGOODBYE, “WHEN WE FIRST KISSED”
Smiths-esque jangle-rock bliss.
ROBYN, “CALL YOUR GIRLFRIEND”
A melancholy Body Talk gem.
PRINCE, “EROTIC CITY”
His recent Welcome 2 America shows give reason to revisit this insanely sexy 1984 B-side.
JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, “LOVESTONED/I THINK SHE KNOWS”
Enough with the acting-here’s hoping JT comes back to music in 2011!
MARIAH CAREY, “AULD LANG SYNE (THE NEW YEAR’S ANTHEM)”
MC’s rousing new rendition would turn the Times Square ball into one giant disco ball.
