1. Bill Cosby, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band” (Beatles cover)
This weekend marks the 40th anniversary of the release of the Beatles’ classic album, which will for some reason be commemorated by Cheap Trick, an orchestra, and a group of absurd guests (who invited Ministry’s Al Jorgenson?). If you really want to relive Beatlemania, crank up Bill Cosby’s version — a truly weird, mostly non-winking nugget. [Lil Mike SF]

2. Timbaland, “The Way I Are (Tony Arzadon Remix)”
A disco-fied turn on Timbaland’s grammatically incorrect statement of being. [Digital Eargasm]

3. 50 Cent feat. Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks, “We on Some Shit”
Curtis and his weed carriers win today’s Truth in Advertising award — this track is a dud. [Nah Right]

4. Robyn, “Since U Been Gone” (Kelly Clarkson cover)
Robyn (she’s big in Sweden, apparently) remakes Clarkson’s finest single with non-embarrassing results. [Hate Something Beautiful]

5. 50 Cent feat. Robin Thicke, “Follow My Lead”
The march toward Curtis continues in this piece of fluff starring Robin Thicke. Now if Fiddy got Alan Thicke (or Kirk Cameron!) to sing over his track, then we’d have something. [Leak Source]
