OTD's top 100 tracks of 2006



100. Kevin Federline, “Popo Zao”

099. Rihanna, “S.O.S.” With apologies to Vanessa Hudgens’s “Baby Come Back To Me” (“Baby Come Back”), J-Simpson’s “A Public Affair” (“Holiday”), and Jamelia’s “Beware of the Dog” (“Personal Jesus”): best ripoff of the year.

008. Amanda Blank feat. Spank Rock, “Blow”

007. Clipse, “Hello New World”

006. Bang Camaro, “Push Push (Lady Lightning)”

005. Gnarls Barkley, “Crazy.”

004. Rick Ross, “Hustlin’.” Other than 001, the only other song on this list that OTD bought as a ringtone.

003. Troy and Gabriella, “Breaking Free.” OTD's High School Musical essay is brewing. That January 10 Centrum date may have something to do with why he's not writing it just now.  

002. Joanna Newsom, “Emily.” Realization while listening to this song for the 1439th time without ever having bothered to forge ahead towards song two: If Jeff Mangum had led off “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea” with “Oh Comely,” we might never have listened to the rest of the album.

001. Justin Timberlake, “My Love.” One measure of a song, though not a good one, is how many remixes it produces. Another measure of a song, somewhat better, is a song that turns out to be unremixable. By both standards, this song is a classic: nobody has come up with a better version, and several big names – DFA, who fell flat on their faces, and Diplo, who threw it over a DFA track – have failed to come up with anything that beats the original.
