Adam Vine's Year End list:
Saints vs. Colts/USA vs. Algeria Pure euphoria(s).
Health Care Don’t let FoxNews, MSNBC, or the judicial system make you forget how good this felt.  People had been trying to do this for years, and we did it.
Elena Kagan I like her style, her sense of humor.  Sotomayor’s too, but that was last year.
Wye Oak @ Rock n Roll Hotel So good I was too shy to say hi afterwards.
Fuck You – Cee Lo If this didn’t brighten your September, fuck you.
“Devil in a New Dress” – Kanye Love the sample, love the song, love the whole album.  I was tempted to list “See Me Now” for it’s overthetop brilliance but I think this is the one I’ll be coming back to over and over.
The video for “Break Free” by Marty This was shot on a shoestring and looks perfect.  As a wise, and stoned, friend of mine said, “The song heightens the video, and the video heightens the song.”  True.
Like a G6 – The Far East Movement feat. Dev and The Cataracs Don’t be too cool to get into this song.  The production is perfect.  And my cousin co-wrote it.
The Wilderness Downtown/”We Used to Wait” Google Earth video for Arcade Fire If you make music and/or videos, and I do both, this is what it’s all about – tapping into that feeling.
Shout Out Louds at 9:30 Club What a night out with friends should be.  Even when some of those friends keep you waiting on the curb for an hour.  That’s all part of it. The SOLs really held down the low end, BTW.
