I like "lilting"! How else would you describe "Ignition (Remix)"? Or "Like Glue"? When you're dealing with a tight word count, sometimes you need to use some sort of ur-adjective to fill in for, like, the pages you could write about "Like Glue" ("you" meaning "me"). Can you suggest a replacement?
Quibbles aside, these lists are badass. You're on fire, don't stop.

Surprising? Hmm, Fiery Furnaces?
