12 Pretty Awesome Mp3s From 2007

So, I realized there were some mp3s that didn't quite make the t11mp3twnfe2007 or the 47 Best Downloadables Of 2007 that helped make 2007 pretty awesome. I share them with you now in no particular order:

"Coffee (Featuring John Darnielle)" (mp3) by Aesop Rock
Comment: "This is what they make you take the medication for." Pretty Awesome.

"D.A.N.C.E. (Tittsworth Remix)" ( mp3) by Justice
Comment: I can't believe I forgot this song, and Tittsworth remix is probably my favorite version of it. Pretty Awesome.

"Heatherwood (Daytrotter Session)" ( mp3) by Deerhunter
Comment: I can't emphasize this enough... Daytrotter is awesome, Pretty Awesome.

"Ex-Guru" (mp3) by Fiery Furnaces
Comment: Sans-Grandma the Furnaces rock out. Pretty Awesome.

"Need Your Needs" (mp3 with a crappy bitrate) by Georgie James
Comments: Probably not what you expected from the breakup of Q And Not U, this track was not included in earlier posts due to a truly shitty bitrate... 64! It's still really good. So listen to it, then buy Places to hear it without that tinny funk. Pretty Awesome.

"Sickos" ( mp3) by Harlem Shakes
Comment: I totally forgot how catchy this song was. I also forgot that it was... Pretty Awesome.

"2080" ( mp3) by Yeasayer
Comment: indie rock + world music = Pretty Awesome.

"To Live And Die In The Airport Lounge" (mp3) My Teenage Stride
Comment: This should take you back to Jan/Feb of 2007. Pretty Awesome.

"Bird Flu" ( mp3) by M.I.A.
Comment: Forget "Paper Planes"... "Bird Flu" is the M.I.A. track that I connected with this past year. Pretty Awesome.

"A Sunday Smile" (mp3) by Beirut
Comment: 2007... Year Of The Take Away Shows! Watch "A Sunday Smile" (take away show). Pretty Awesome.

"The Crystal Cat" ( mp3) by Dan Deacon
Comment: Is it wrong that I wish the dude would just get up on a stage? Still... Pretty Awesome.

"Lovely Weather" (mp3) by The Vandelles
Comment: Some may remember 2007 as the year of the return of the shoegaze, and the Vandelles do it so well. Pretty Awesome.
