Random Questions And Links And, Oh Yeah, Your Best Song

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 16.884% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

Random links.
1)  Regarding yesterday’s love post, I note my wife was kind enough to create a love thread for me.  I note this because I am an attention whore.
2)  Seriously, how cool is it that there’s a Jedi Training Camp for kids?  Registration’s still open for slots in February, and if I had a kid nearby to Texas, I’d be sending him off.  (And bonus points for not using the term Padawan.)
3)  Spotify is really opening up musical horizons for me.  I do love being able to listen to any song on the year’s-best lists to see whether I’m impressed or not.  So I’ll ask you one question:
What was your favorite song in 2011?  
You choose only one.  Seriously.  If you can’t choose one, I’ll boot you.  I’m looking for new music, but don’t wanna be drowned in suggestions.  And no, the song doesn’t have to be made in 2011, I’m just curious as to what your favorite song was that you found this year.
If I had to choose one, it’d probably be the Dartmouth Aires’ cover of “Club Can’t Handle Me Right Now” (skip to 2:56 to see it and skip the intro).  Seriously.  It’s insanely sweet, and as an acapella song it’s just pure beauty.  That last note is just…. mmm.
(I have other songs that might be contenders, but I can play by my own rules.)

    Cee-Lo Green, Fuck you. I think it came out in 2010 but I’m always late to the party

    Favorite song found this year for me has to be “Seven Nation Army” by Ben l’Oncle Soul. I know it’s a cover, but once you listen to it you won’t hear the original in your head any more. You’ll only be able to remember this one. Awesome stuff.
