1. Gnarls Barkley, “Save Your Soul”
The last leaked track from Gnarls’ upcoming second album was too fast, and now this one is too slow. We can only hope that the next one will be exactly the right tempo. [Stereogum]

2. Madonna feat. Timbaland and Justin Timberlake, “4 Minutes to Save the Planet”
Warner Bros. is sending takedown notices to any MP3 blog crazy enough to post Madonna’s underwhelming new single, so in all likelihood, you only have four minutes to click this link. [Pop Music Kingdom]

3. Dmitry Fyodorov, “1987”
This bass-heavy dance track chronicles the struggles of the Russian Olympic hockey team on their way to a gold medal in the 1988 games. This should please the enormous clubgoing hockey-fiend demographic. [Hot Biscuits]

4. Lupe Fiasco, “Paris, Tokyo”
Lupe shows up in a suit with a smooth jazz band for an appearance on the Tonight Show and comes across looking even less hip than Jay Leno. [Culture Bully]

5. G3rst, “Hotel California in Fire and Flames”
This mash-up of a Dragonforce track with the Eagles’ tired classic really makes us smile, mostly because we’re imagining how cranky it would make Don Henley. [Culture Bully] —Ehren Gresehover
