Twigs was amazing, and I’m so glad I got to see her for her first U.S. show. She is unreal in person, descended from the heavens to shock our wretched souls.

#8 - This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody) by Talking Heads

I’m just an animal looking for a home
And share the same space for a minute or two
And you love me ‘til my heart stops
Love me ‘til I’m dead

David Byrne isn’t known for his love songs. This song is full of non-sequitars, but each line elicits a strong emotional reaction. At first I felt foolish identifying with the lyrics, like there was a subversive hidden meaning I hadn’t caught. As it turns out, David Byrne just wanted to write a love song that wasn’t corny, and I think he did a damn good job.

Kelela

I can’t believe it took me so long to listen to Kelela. I’m so into this. I heard "Go All night" on the Saint Heron compilation, and I was really into it, but I’ve been so bad at listening to new music lately. Anyway, she’s playing two shows at The Echo in LA in April. One show is already sold out, but you can still pick up tickets for the April 1st show.

#7 - Drunk In Love by Beyoncé (ft. Jay Z)

I have a lot to say about Beyoncé and Jay Z as partners and as individual artists, but for the sake of brevity and my own sanity, I won’t get into it. I will, however, remind everyone that Beyoncé’s recent self-titled release is about feminism, relationships, and motherhood (among other things). It’s about how creating a child changes your relationship with your partner, and how the definition of love evolves. It’s about not feeling sexy because your feet are swollen from carrying a bowling ball all day, but also being so god damn attracted to your partner that you tear off each other’s clothes before you can make it to the bedroom.

Remixes by The Weeknd, Kanye West, Diplo and James Blake:

#6 - Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow by The Shirelles

And a cover by Lykke Li:

I featured both versions of the song because I couldn’t decide which I felt more strongly about. Lykke Li’s cover is dragged out and painful, but intentionally so and in a really great way. This isn’t a quiet song. The question she asks is straight forward. If we sleep together tonight, will this mean anything in the morning? Will you still love me tomorrow? On the other hand, The Shirelles version is less forlorn. It hints at sadness, but it’s still a pop song. It glosses over the sadness with big hair and a made-up face.
