Five Songs You Overlooked This Summer

Yes, we're back! It's been a year in Vancouver and we're overdue for some concert reviews, but first, here's what you missed this summer.

5The Legendary Tigerman – Light Me Up Twice (zshare) (YSI)
The Portuguese one-man-band is joined by Cláudia Efe in a sexy blues duet.
"God is everywhere—under a woman's skirt and inside a man's pants."

4Alabama 3 – Jacqueline (zshare) (YSI)
The British acid house rockers are back with a wild west tune about Jaqueline, a down-and-dirty cowgirl out on the prowl.

3Professor Green – Just Be Good to Green (Camo & Krooked Remix) (zshare) (YSI)
Joined by Lily Allen, East London rapper Prof. Green drops his massive second single of 2010. The drum and bass remix by Camo & Krooked tops the original beat by a London mile.

2Frank Black – I Heard Ramona Sing (zshare) (YSI)
Pixies' frontman Frank Black delivers his signatory chord progressions from hell, in a rock and roll tribute to The Ramones.
"I hope if someone retires, they pull another Menudo."
(Before he was livin' la vida loca, Ricky Martin was a Menudo—Puerto Rican boyband infamous for their frequent lineup changes.)

1Cee-Lo Green – No One's Gonna Love You (zshare) (YSI)
Frontman of Gnarls Barkley and one of hip-hop's most charismatic vocalists, Cee-Lo Green returns to his solo career with this December with The Lady Killer. His cover of the Band of Horses breakup song has been overshadowed by his smash hit "Fuck You" this week, but I have a feeling "No One's Gonna Love You" is going to stay in my playlist a lot longer. Check out the music video, featuring a real storyline! Oh and it's definitely NSFW.
