First, out of all the songs on Rolling Stones’ 100 Best of 2006 list I would not have expected that my favorite would be a Carrie Underwood song, “Before He Cheats.” (This is the song she sang during halftime of that Thanksgiving football game, right?) I loved, loved, loved Carrie when she was on American Idol, but I never expected to really like her actual releases. Regardless, it’s awesome.
RS is wrong about the best cover of Gnarles Barkley’s “Crazy” (the original is number one, natch. Can’t really argue with that.) Clearly the best is the version by the Kooks, with Nelly Furtado in second. The Raconteurs do a good job, as do the Twilight Singers, but those versions just don’t hold up.
As an honorable mention, “Gin & Milk” by Dirty Pretty Things is really awesome.
If you want/need any of these songs please email me and I’ll hook you up.
