Some of my favorite tracks to feature someone - anyone - counting, shouting, vocoding, or chanting “1,2,3,4” at the start of the song.

Best of 2011 - Runner-up Edition

Ten tracks from ten albums too good to ignore in 2011. 

25 years ago, this song was unleashed on the world when They Might Be Giants released their self-titled “pink” album. 20 years ago at the ripe old age of 13, I bought my cassette copy with money I had saved mowing lawns and washing cars (I think) after completely absorbing Lincoln and Flood. I know they hate being described as “quirky” artists, but there’s no denying this is pure “quirky”, independent, 1980’s college radio, early days of MTV fare.
