Premature Ejaculation, Part I

Premature Ejaculation, Part I

I figured since I’m not planning on posting much the next few days due to an overload of NYFF, I’m going to do something sort of lame but hopefully fun. Since the 3rd quarter is over, and I’m a list whore who has been slowly tabulating my two favourite annual lists – songs and films – I’m just going to shoot them both out unseasonably, or at least some of them. Call it the first annual third quarter top 33. We’ll call it an experiment in seeing how taste can change over the last three months of the year. When really, I could just be ruining the fun 92 days from now.

But whatever. For today, here’s songs, all of them with attached videos (like you’d expect anything less), some of which are their actual videos, and for non-singles, whatever else I could find. The top three now, the following bunch after le jump. Its actually a pretty fantastic group of tracks (personally, at least – I understand music’s variation in personal tastes is probably a lot greater than other art forms, which makes these lists very subjective) even if it were for four whole quarters.
