1. Scarlett Johansson, “I Don’t Want to Grow Up” (Tom Waits cover)
Like we said (though we forgive you if you didn’t believe us), ScarJo’s Tom Waits album is nowhere near as bad as anyone would’ve imagined. And here’s the proof. [Charlie’s]

2. Oppenheimer, “Look Up”
This infectiously twee Belfast pop group thinks “the people in the city who always look up at the spaces in the buildings” are deep thinkers. Here, they’re just the tourists. [Culture of Me]

3. The Hold Steady, “Stay Positive” (live)
Craig Finn expresses his preference to be called “old-school” rather than simply “old,” then sings a song about being old. [Rawking Refuses to Stop]

4. Razorbloodz, “(Everything I Need to Know About Gender Theory I Learned From) Mrs. Doubtfire”
The song’s not bad, it’s just that we’ve never actually learned anything from Robin Williams. [Heartache with Hard Work]

5. Re-Up Gang, “What’s Up”
The Re-Up Gang is preparing a new mix tape which should be finished shortly. To hold you off, here’s an old track, an excellent primer on the manufacture and distribution of illegal narcotics. [So Much Silence]
