34) "The Mid-Morning Recording"                        Standard Fare-'The Noyelle Beat'
Where to begin? The female/male dialogue, presented almost like play script? Or maybe it's the incredibly catchy choruses that speak to my hook laden pop sensibilities? Maybe it's that over the course of the year, I kept coming back and listening to it over and over and over. The lead off track alone was enough to get my father to prick up his ears and ask, "Who is that?". Now he listens to it in his truck regularly. In 2010 I don't believe I played this album for anyone who didn't like it after the fact. It was strange but I kept feeling the ghost of John Peel surrounding this album. Not only did the press release mention his name, but it just feels like a piece of great music that he would rather enjoy.. It's an album that just makes you feel happy to be alive.. Just good songs that are listenable over and over and over. Thanks to Bar/None Records, because this album struck a huge pop chord with me in 2010, and I'll be listening to this album for years to come. Easily my favorite album of the year. "Say you don't want anything. Say you don't want to be here. Say you don't want anything from me. Say you don't want to do this." - Michael - MFL
35) James-"Sayonara"  From the CD 'Wah-Wah'.
