1. Fuzzy, “Flashlight” – One of those “there-are-a-million-other-punks-songs-just-like-this-and-none-of-them-are-bad” type of songs.
2. Zombies, “She’s Not There” in commercial for Coco Mademoiselle Channel – An art director’s wet dream, and a pop fan’s too (I haven’t stopped thinking of the song all week, and I crane my neck from the kitchen to catch a glimpse every time it comes on TV).
3. Laurie Spiegel, “Patchwork”
4. Beach Boys, “Solar System”
5. Electric Light Orchestra, “Believe Me Now”
6. Kraftwerk in 3D at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, March 29 – Also an art director’s wet dream, and an exhilarating evening, capped by a zealous female fan rushing the stage just as the curtains came down.
7. Hedley, “Crazy For You” – Sometimes, one just happens to get lucky, I suppose.
8. Frankie Knuckles Presents Satoshi Tomiie, “Tears” – R.I.P.

“Flashlight”‘s great—on a CD from me, maybe? (I discovered it on what I think was the first mix-tape Rob Sheffield gave to me.) There’s another song on the same CD called “Surfing” that very much fits the there-are-a-million-other-punks-songs-just-like-this-and-none-of-them-are-bad rule.
Yes — part of the (rather large) “PD comp” playlist on my iTunes. I know I’d heard it before, but it caught me this time around. I had to double-check to see if you’d included it on your Top 100 a couple years back, but I might have been confusing it (title-wise, I mean) with Fudge.
