1. Bob Dylan and Jack White, "Meet Me in the Morning" (live)
It makes sense that they did a tune from Blood on the Tracks, but wouldn’t it have been great to hear Dylan try to make heads or tails of "Seven Nation Army" or "Blue Orchid"? [Fuel Friends]
2. Serj Tankian, "Empty Walls"
By far the hookiest, least-gypsy-sounding song ever to fall out of the System of a Down singer’s head. [Culture Bully]
3. The Simpsons, "Everybody Hates Ned Flanders"
It doesn’t seem fair that Matt Groening is responsible for one of the year’s best-reviewed movies and an excellent album. It still doesn’t make up for the cancellation of Futurama. [Mainstream Isn't So Bad]
4. J Dilla feat. Talib Kweli and Q-Tip, "Lightworking"
Sure, it’s from a soundtrack to a video game, but it feels really good to have Tip back rapping fiercely and not crooning ethereal slow jams. [Nah Right]
5. George Clinton and Pepe, "Flashlight"
Since it’s pretty obvious that George Clinton is at least 60 percent Muppet anyway, this collaboration always made perfect sense. [Ha ha music]
