Now we got problems.
 And I don’t think we can solve them.
 You made a really deep cut.
 And baby, now we got bad blood. -Swift

UPDATE 10/23 10:15PM: Officials say Dr. Spencer attended only the Gutter, not Brooklyn Bowl as early reports suggested.

In between stops on her summer tour, Lorde curated the soundtrack to the upcoming blockbuster The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. We’ve already heard some of her handiwork in her solo cut “Yellow Flicker Beat” as well as “This Is Not A Game,” her collaboration with the Chemical Brothers and Miguel that premiered earlier today. Now, since it’s already Tuesday in the UK, the entire soundtrack tracklist has been revealed via an iTunes UK preorder page. It’s impressive! In addition to new tracks from emerging talents like Tove Lo, Raury, and Tinashé, the comp features some unexpected collaborations including a Kanye remix of Lorde, Charli XCX with Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon, and the ambitious grouping of Stromae with Lorde, Pusha T, Q-Tip, and HAIM. Check it out below.

I’m surprised you guys have a problem w/ this. This post, which is pretty similar, was well-liked:

Here’s 10 Best Songs for now. Will be a while before we do a Counting Down.

Same here. I didn’t get “Hollywood” yet, but I am enjoying these demos.

That is true.

Also, despite the fact that Tom used the phrase “terrible glory” in this post, we are all Taylor Swift fans to different degrees. I love “Shake It Off,” but not the 2 other singles. Same w/ Chris I think. Tom actually likes “Welcome To New York”; he wants it in this week’s 5 Best Songs but I think he will get outvoted. James likes all the new songs. I’m not positive where Michael and Gabriela stand on the new songs. Miles is waiting for the Tim Hecker remix.

1989 is the follow-up to one of the site’s favorite albums of 2012, and it will probably be the most commercially successfully album of this year, so that’s we are covering it closely. But we do like 200 posts a week… very few of them are about Taylor Swift.

He changed his name in 1978, but he didn’t release any music from 1978-2006, so it’s not like people are very familiar with “Yusuf songs.”

On my promo this song is called “Lessons From the Edge.” Very confusing, Chris.

I guess El and T. Swift do have something in common.
