robynbigboi@AndyShore Will this be the second match up in a row where Zack’s pick to click falls short? I sure hope so. Robyn’s big year landed her a spot performing at the MTV Video Music Awards with Deadmau5. Big Boi brought that voice that we’re oh so familiar with back into our lives in a big way. Both deserve their places in our best song of the year contest. Does the Swedish singer have what it takes to make it to round two? Can Big Boi stand on his own without Andre 3000 and do his dance in to the next round? This round pits Robyn – “Dancing on my Own” against Big Boi – “Shutterbug.” Who will win? You tell us…after we tell you.

@ZackTeibloom This wasn’t just a comeback for Robyn. She exploded back on the scene with her three part Body Talk album, featuring a slew of instant classics, but none as dynamic as “Dancing on my Own,” a new anthem for the girl who ends a night out alone. It’s one you can’t help belting the lyrics along to whether you’re on the dance floor or driving with the windows down. No matter if you can hit the high notes or not. Big Boi had a mighty fine solo album and I’m happy to do the shutterbug, but he came to Austin and played right down the block and I didn’t feel obliged to go. Robyn got booked for the new ACL studios and it was the only thing purchased on Black Friday (thanks Meg!) Robyn’s dancing on to the next round.

@AndyShore I can’t even begin to tell you how great it is to have music from Big Boi back in my life. Especially since the last quality output from him and Andre3000 was 2003s Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. Any it’s not just new music for the sake of making new music. This was a comeback, a coming out party (a la D-Rose in the seven game series against the Celtics) and a return for one of the all time hip hop greats. The beat on “Shutterbug” is so catchy that I often sing it along with the song. The flow that Big Boi spits is so familiar it’s like comfort food for your ears. Just like “Dancing on my Own,” this song fits any occasion. The synths bounce around your ears and the riffing guitar drives the song. You’ll never be upset you’re hearing it.
