Singles file: Britney Spears, Middle Brother, Curren$y

By Allison Stewart

britneyIt may not take down Gaga, but Britney's return single is a winner. (Linda Davidson/TWP)

A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind...

Britney Spears: "Hold It Against Me"

Is it a Gaga slayer? Probably not, but the first track from Spears' upcoming don't-call-it-a-comeback disc mixes the best of Gaga, RiRi and mid-'00s electro-inspired Europop.

Middle Brother: "Me Me Me"

The leaders of Delta Spirit, Dawes and Deer Tick form a blog-baiting supertrio with an unexpectedly raucous debut single that's equal parts early Guided By Voices and vintage Big Star.

Curren$y featuring Sir Michael Rocks and Tabi Bonney: "Fly Out (Part Tres)"

The ever-prolific Spitta enlists Bonney and half of The Cool Kids for this super-funky, Michael Jordan-dissing new track.

Second City Rhythm: "You Got Me"

Chicago DJ Adulture and British remixer Ghosts of Venice unite for this disco house scorcher, the maiden single from their upcoming EP.

Villagers: "Old Man" (Neil Young cover)

Ireland's greatest one-man band essays an uncannily good, essentially faithful cover of Young's "Harvest" classic for Mojo magazine's upcoming tribute disc, "Harvest Revisited."

IMHO, Curren$y was the rapper who had the best 2010.
