Kings of Leon-Frontier City

One of my favorite things is when I "rediscover" great songs that I've had on my iPod for years.  I feel like it's impossible to narrow down one's favorite Kings songs since there are far too many.  I also never realized that this song was a bonus track on the album Only by the Night.

MacKenzie Bourg-Call Me Maybe

Just give it a listen.  Though it isn't hard to outdo Carly Rae Jepsen's version since it is utterly atrocious, this dude makes "Call Me Maybe" a worth while listen.  Also, his voice really reminds me of Brett Dennen.

Mariah Carey-All I Want For Christmas

Tis the season, right?  Plus, if you don't like this song then you are a total Scrooge.

Dave Matthews Band-Mercy

I've often called Dave Matthews Band the "Everybody Loves Raymond" of musical artists, meaning that they are completely average, neither great nor terrible, and I could never really comprehend their massive following.  However, I really like this song.

Incubus-Pardon Me

I liked this song for a while but then I finally listened to the poignant lyrics and it instantly became one of my all time favorites.  Favorite line: "Lately I've been thinking of combustication as I welcome vacation from the planet earth, like gravity, hypocrisy, and the perils of being in 3-D.... while thinking so much differently."

The Spinners-Working My Way Back To You

This song is just great and makes you want to break into a funky dance.  Also, if you don't listen to all of it then at the very least skip to the last 20 seconds or so and check out the absolutely awesome falsetto this dude reaches.
