Of course, it isn't a category, but if it were, what do you think would be the nominees this year?

(I'm looking for predictions, not preferences, but feel free to give both.)

I agree...I think it's the best song of the year. "96,000" is great except some sections sound like a really bad boy-band song.

I love "Dont Ever Stop..." but some of the lyrics are a bit annoying.

And "Transylvania.." is good because it's insanely catchy. And let's face it, Stro knows how to choreograph a show-stopper.

How about "I'M RUNNING THINGS NOW!" set to one of the horrible techno remix backtracks?
