2007 Round-Up: Singles (36-22)

The actual order of some of these tracks is pretty loose, but you get the idea. Yeah, it's a top 36, but it was 13 last year. Quantity and quality. It's all here, er approximately a third of it anyway. All links are zshare.

36. Dolly Parton - Jolene (Peter Visti Slow Edit) One of my favorite surprises this year.

35. Bobmo - To the Bobmobile Simple and addictive.

34. Larry Tee feat. Princess Superstar - Work It Out (Herve Goes Low Remix) One of the most dependable club hits of 2007. Herve was on his game here.

33. Danger - 14h54 Another EP I didn't see coming. Dark, brooding, and cinematic.

32. M.I.A. - Jimmy Sorry "Paper Planes" lovers.

31. Digitalism - Pogo (Shinichi Osawa Remix) The original was good enough for the list, but Osawa's edit makes it just a little better.

30. Bloc Party - Where is Home? (Burial Remix) And here I was thinking the new Bloc Party album was a total loss.

29. Supermayer - Two of Us (Extended Album Version) I've come to appreciate more of the Supermayer album for how it's different, but this song is the type of thing everyone was expecting, and it delivers.

28. Tracy Thorn - It's All True (Martin Buttrich Remix) I was all set on loving the Kris Menace remix the best, but then this came along and, well, Kris won a lot of other places so he shouldn't be too disappointed.

27. Michael Jackson - Thriller (Villains Tootight Pants Remix) Best MJ remix I've ever heard.

26. Caribou - Melody Day Sun-drenched brilliance.

25. Battles - Atlas Tough call for favorite Battles song, but this one has the best drums.

24. The Avalanches - Ray of Zdarlight Digitalism + Wham = Yes! (the exclamation, not the band).

23. Hot Chip - My Piano Love the high-pitched synth squeals. Wish this was on the new LP.

22. Simian Mobile Disco - It's the Beat (The Teenagers Remix) Teenagers made one of the best dance singles of the year into a squelchy, climactic epic.
