We’ve all played the “M.F.K” game before — where you’re given three names and have to decide which one you want to put a ring on, which one you spend the night with and then sneak out before they wake up the next morning, and which one simply needs to be killed?
Well this is exactly the same, except with music. I give you three songs, and all you have to do is leave a comment below and tell tell me which one you LOVE, which one you want to fugg, and which one sleeps with the fishes.
Of course, we’re always looking for reader submissions — so if there’s a track you heard and you kinda like it, or you seriously love it, or you absolutely HATE IT — find a YouTube and email me the link and I’ll post it up here as soon as I can.
One thing you might not know is that record companies tend to angle album releases of established artists in early autumn, figuring that even if they don’t get many hits from these albums that come Christmastime when people are pressed for a gift they can always lean on that “Well, I remember that so-and-so, likes Green Day, so I guess it would be ok to get him their new CD, right?”
So what you’re seeing now is either the “return” of a lot of artists who you might have thought were gone for good (like No Doubt, for instance), or the hotly anticipated second offering from people who might have made a splash last year, but haven’t become superstars yet.
With that in mind, this week we bring back some familiar names to see what they have to offer in 2012 — Let’s see what you think.
And remember, even if you like the songs — you HAVE TO CHOOSE!
Bruno Mars — Locked Out of Heaven
Soundgarden — Been Away Too Long
Maroon 5 — One More Night
