Diplo is great but...

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs don't need any help to get things started. I hadn't heard anything this year until Karen opened her mouth. Gold Lion is a great track. It gets the best original recording by duo or group. Or hey, even a single person! Check them out.

As for adaptations, Mary J. Blige doing U2's "One" is impossibly good. Blige can rock out. What's with all the weepy soul when she can kill a track like this? This song should be playing everywhere forever. What else is going on?

Turns out that Ms. John Soda's "No. One" was made in 2003.

Thank godless Sonic Youth promise a release in the spring.
