Favorite Songs Of 2014, #11

“Rent I Pay” – Spoon

I’ll entertain arguments that all Spoon songs kind of sound the same. But the thing is, they’re almost always really freaking good. It’s good to hear them recapture their old swagger after a couple albums with slightly different sounds.

And if that’s your answer no I ain’t your dancer

What happens when a couple of P-I-M-P-S get together over the holidays? Magic, that’s what happens.

“Spinners” – The Hold Steady

The Hold Steady will never again be as good as during their three-album run from 2005–2008. But they still write great songs, like this ode to getting out and trying to put heartbreak behind you. Or, put the ball in play, as some of us used to say.

The nights go on forever now
But the morning comes up quick.
