I don’t know if today's All Access donor wants to be identified further but TOUGH. I have been friends with David since ninth grade. David had cooler taste in music than me — he introduced me to Smashing Pumpkins — and yet I’m the one with a struggling music blog and he’s merely a celebrated civil rights attorney specializing in exonerations and wrongful convictions, police misconduct, LGBTQ+ rights, prisoners' rights, and advocacy for victims of sex abuse. In your face, David. David once tried to get me to see Suede on their first US tour but I didn’t wanna go / hadn't heard of them. Sad! But we did see Black 47 a couple of times in high school. We were really into Black 47. Thanks to David for donating and picking this awesome song!

October 12, 2020 on The Number Ones: Phil Collins’ “Sussudio”
Jason Derulo has put a ton of time into growing a TikTok presence this year, and this has been popular audio there for months. I didn’t even know there was a version with BTS but I guess that has pushed it to #1.
