Thanks to the creation of an "obsessions" playlist in iTunes, I have determined, by far, what my favorite song of the last six months is. It is Flip Flop Rock, by Outkast. A non-single from Speakerboxxx, instead of The Love Below, it seems to have no proponents other than me and my friends, but it is quite simply the best hip-hop song I know. It has the catchy beat and the fantastic flow that the best of Outkast has. Imagine The Whole World (wah wah, wah-wah wahwah) but even tighter. By far the best song on Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, and that includes Hey Ya and The Way You Move, in case you were wondering.
In other news, for you indie rock as opposed to hip-hop fans, I have found that the new best-band-since-Sleater-Kinney is around these days. They're called Metric. They have three songs that tear into my psyche in the way the best songs do: Dead Disco is catchy as all hell, Combat Baby is a joyous pop song about dating punker kids, and Succexxy is a brilliant, catchy, postmodern attachment of war to false sexuality. Your Limewire knows you want to see what I'm talking about, yo.
