R. Kelly - Trapped in the Closet

It's a pretty darn amazing, and funny, song. At just over forty minutes - yes, 40 - it manages to be alternatively super-serious/suspenseful and hilarious. It consists of 12 separate tracks that flow into one another in a massive plot of tiwsted betrayal and raw human emotion and just outright outrageous comedy. You have to hear this record.

I want to hear another one that's not hilarious - it'd have to win every music award offered.

Massive hat tip to, whose Top 50 Singles of 2005 List is legit - this song, or series of songs, sits at #9. Pitchfork is by far and away the best music site on the net today. Hands down. One of the things I like most about Pitchfork is they're open to all flavors of music, it seems - they'll review everything and give each artist/production the respect it deserves, regardless of the genre.
