1. Annie, "Loco"

Norway's finest expounds on the joys of new love in such a way that will probably not strain your limited knowledge of Spanish vocabulary. This song is awesome, by the way. [Music is the Heart of Our Soul via Idolator]

2. Coldplay, "Lost!" (live on The Daily Show)
Last night, Coldplay became only the third-ever musical artist to perform on The Daily Show, confirming that it is, indeed, the slowest news week in all of history. [Pitchfork]

3. Pearl Jam feat. Ace Frehley, "Black Diamond" (Kiss cover)
Ace let Mike McCready take five at MSG last night, soloing on KISS's classic "Black Diamond," their best-ever song about advanced downhill skiing. [Stereogum]

4. David Banner feat. Lil Wayne, "Shawty Say"
Banner refashions Wayne's "Lollipop" into a track approximately half as good as "Lollipop." Still, not bad. [Nah Right]

5. Liz Phair, New song
From Phair's Guyville show in Chicago on Tuesday, a brand-new track. We like all her other songs better. [Stereogum]
