Best of 2010 Singles: #26 Kris Menace, "Maybelline"

This is essentially, and somewhat bizarrely, an 8:20 interpolation of Devo's "That's Good" (from 1982's Oh No! It's Devo), sans vocals. It's kind of a re-edit, as Menace beefed up the drums (they absolutely WHOMP on this take) - well, come to think of it, he beefed up all of it to make it even more dancefloor-friendly. If you don't like loop-y tracks, this probably won't be your cup of joe. But if, like me, you think that Daft Punk's "One More Time" is one of the greatest songs ever, this will probably suit you nicely. (All 3 of the Menace tracks on my chart, BTW, are featured on the fab compilation Work It Baby - 10th Anniversary.)

As a bonus, here's the source material from Devo:
