For our tenth installment of RCRD LBL Essential Playlist we bring you a special selection of songs from[mp3com-artist] Cold War Kids[/mp3com-artist],[mp3com-artist] Mayer Hawthorne[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]The Limosines[/mp3com-artist] and more! [mp3com-artist]Cold War Kids[/mp3com-artist] start things off with "Where Would We Be Without Christmas." Though this song may appear to be a tad bit belated (Christmas was so two weeks ago), it's really just another great [mp3com-artist]Cold War Kids[/mp3com-artist] rock song. [mp3com-artist]Mayer Hawthorne[/mp3com-artist]'s EP of cover songs, Impressions, was a fantastic compilation of him performing a bunch of the songs that inspired him to become a singer. His version of the [mp3com-artist]The Festivals[/mp3com-artist]' "You Got The Makings Of A Lover" is right on point, and the Pillowtalk remix ups the tempo just enough to give it some extra  pep. Continuing the "covers" theme is[mp3com-artist] The Limosines[/mp3com-artist] doing a slick electro-pop rework of[mp3com-artist] Paul Simon[/mp3com-artist]'s "Call Me Al." A great song off of Simon's seminal album Graceland, in the hands of [mp3com-artist]The Limosines[/mp3com-artist] "Call Me Al" gets jazzed up with some extra synths and a dancefloor ready beat. The rest of the Essentials Playlist is rounded out by some great tracks from the likes of [mp3com-artist]Active Child[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]Far East Movement[/mp3com-artist], [mp3com-artist]Anthony Green[/mp3com-artist] and [mp3com-artist]Rochelle Jordan[/mp3com-artist]. So what are you waiting for? Get in there and start listening! [rcrd-lbl]http://rcrdlbl.com/widgets2.0/core/?m=show_widget&w=essentials011211[/rcrd-lbl] Click HERE to hear more RCRD LBL Essentials.
