#1. LCD Soundsystem "This is Happening"

#2. Black Keys "Brothers"

#5. Best Coast "Crazy for You"

Honorable mentions:

The Walkmen "Lisbon"

Christmas ad showdown

For the second year in a row, these Target ads were my favorite of the season. Not as funny as the ones last year but this time around they're sweet and packed with stellar tunes.

And you can download all of the music they used in all of the spots right here for no charge. Click and jam, click and jam. That Bishop Allen jam, "You'll never find my Christmas" is quite catchy as is the Natalie Hemby ""Perfect Gift." Check 'em out!
