It's worth pointing out that I have never used the star rating system in iTunes very seriously. I'd say 90% of my library is unrated.

A small selection, or else this would just be a huge list of Panda Bear, Sunset Rubdown, Owen Pallett and Sam Amidon songs.
- Walkabout ft. Noah Lennox by Atlas Sound
Bradford Cox AND Panda Bear, on one song. Sometimes collaborations are better in name than in sound, but this is one of the best things I have ever heard. What did you want to see, what did you want to be when you grew up? A: TO GO AWAY AND NOT LOOK BACK
- Lust for Life by Girls
The amount of times that the line "I wish I had a pizza and a bottle of wine" has popped in to my head is countless.
