The latest MP3s to hit the blogs.

1. Lil Flip, “Virginia Tech Song”
Bragging about having been shot may not be the most tasteful way to pay tribute to the victims of the Virginia Tech shooting. Just saying. [Idolator]

2. Arctic Monkeys, “You Know I’m No Good”
Recorded live for the BBC last week, this Arctic Monkeys cover of an Amy Winehouse track stays true to her version by keeping the song’s original gender pronouns and ending abruptly so the band can run offstage and vomit. [Berkeley Place]

3. Björk, “Wanderlust (Saturday Night Live 4/21/2007)”
Like most of Björk’s best work, this past weekend’s SNL performance strikes exactly the right balance between whimsical and head-scratching. [Culture Bully]

4. Feist, “My Moon My Man (Boys Noize Remix)”
This remix adds all the synthesizers and disco beats that Feist’s original version was so obviously lacking. [Cause=Time]

5. Paul McCartney, “Ever Present Past”
As long as Paul McCartney can eke out another 10,000 singles like this one (his first for Starbucks’ record label), that £200 million divorce settlement should be no problem. [Stereogum] —Lane Brown
