poptimists forgot to do a June RIP round-up, so here's my list:
The best new thing I heard in June:
Best song that was new to me but not the world:
Mylène Farmer "Désenchantée"
New To Me And New To The World:
Taylor Swift "Take A Bow"*
Vanessa Hudgens "Identified"
Vanessa Hudgens "First Bad Habit"
Vanessa Hudgens "Amazed"
Ashton Shepherd "Whiskey Won The Battle"
Lil Wayne "3 Peat"
Lil Wayne "Shoot Me Down"
Keak Da Sneak "Ass Chauffeur"
New To Me:
Daveigh Chase "The Happiest Girl In The Whole USA"
Najoua Belyzel "Gabriel"
Cassie "Don't Go Too Slow"
Expander & Thinkfreak "Trackum"
*Live, frail, out-of-tune cover of the Rihanna song, the frailty making it even more pained and venemous.
And yes, the Vanessa Hudgens tracks are that good, even though her voice is weak and characterless.
