The 50 Best Songs of 2012

41. Blood Diamonds f/ Grimes "Phone Sex"

Album: N/A
Producer: Mike Tucker
Label: 4AD

"Phone Sex" reaches new levels of happiness in music. With Grimes' flighty, playful vocals chopped over a low marimba-filled beat, the entire song is a dreamscape. Grimes' weirdly haunting lyrics ("Please, daddy, take me home/Please, daddy, talk to God") are all the more powerful on Mike Tucker's distinct instrumental. The track is otherworldly beautiful. — LN
