Artist: The Dream Track: "Shawty Is a Ten" Listen

Chris DeVille and I were going over our year-end lists, and he mentioned that this track was inching up his favorites list. It's not bad. Still stuck in my head this morning. I like it most because it sounds like R. Kelly, and I don't have to feel guilty for liking a dude who sodomizes teenagers. Always a plus.

Now for your theft of the day...

Artist: The Meters Track: "He Bite Me" Album: The Very Best of the Meters

The greatest band to come from New Orleans sings about being knights at the Round Table. A dragon is the he in question, and for some reason, he bites Art Neville. Weird proof that The Meters can make anything sound funky.
