Great to see Victoria rocking out. Cool of Colbert to mention Depression Cherry and TYLS at the end.

The 10 Best Duran Duran Songs
There's something about Rihanna that I can't put my finger on (which I like). Plus her bangers go so hard. She's a great interpreter of the moment.

Rihanna – “Bitch Better Have My Money” Video
A desert island disc for me. The non singles like "I Think I'm a Mother" and "Teclo" evoke so many wonderful, dark feelings. I miss when artists could use a persona with intelligence (as opposed to "realness" which quickly becomes tiresome). Interesting note: Tricky opened a few dates for PJ on her tour for this record. Maxinquaye's 20th anniversary is also this year. Bless you Polly Jean.

To Bring You My Love
If Sister is thunder signaling the approaching storm then Dirty is the sound of the sky opening. The band took advantage of Butch Vig's production and that Geffen loot to craft something really special.

The Cure Albums From Worst To Best
Worth this 3rd mention; Steve's work with Electrelane is quite good. "The Power Out" is overlooked a bit.
