M.I.A. struts her stuff at the Echoplex, July 31

UCLA's online student radio station has released its list of top 10 most-played albums of 2007. Looks like it was a good year for hip-hop at the station, with the above-pictured third-world jetsetter M.I.A. taking the number one spot.

The station also recently put out favorite record lists from many of its managers. Longtime Promotions Director Jason Stern describes his favorites using only lyrics from Morrissey songs:

1. M.I.A. - Kala (XL/Interscope)
Always looking for attention
Always needs to be mentioned
Who does she think she should be? 2. Elliott Smith - New Moon (Kill Rock Stars)
Angel, Angel
Don't Take Your Life Tonight

3. Fennesz/Sakamto - Cendre (Touch)
Shelve your western plans
And understand
That life is hard enough when you belong here

4. Health - Health (Lovepump United)
Sir thwacks you on the knees
Knees you in the groin
Elbow in the face
Bruises bigger than dinner plates

5. Black Dice - Load Blown (Paw Tracks)
A plastic bag
Stranded at the light
This once was me

They've got plenty more college radio hijinx over at The Blog.
