Song of the Year Candidates

Last March or so I proclaimed The Mars Volta's "Goliath" to be, unquestionably, the song of the year. I still think it is...sorta; because since then two songs have emerged (and it's a damn shame only two have) in the past month or so to give it a run for its money.

Here are the nominees:


Obviously, Game's not taking it, despite Raekwon's goose bump-inducing verse. "Bulletproof Diaries" is like Daegu going up against Tatooine and Gondor to host the summer Olympics.

Which means it's either unfairly maligned The Mars Volta or TV on the Radio.

Tough call.

I hate myself right now for posting this.
