Macy Gray (featuring Velvet Revolver) — “Kissed It”
(from The Sellout) — Kissed

Gray has turned in a handful of worthy singles in the decade since her brilliant breakthrough — I personally always thought 2003’s “When I See You” shoulda been a monster hit — but nothing that held that same kind of genre-busting brash ‘tude as her Grammy-winning classic “I Try.” But check this out: the devilish, devious kiss of Slash’s ever-efficient guitar serves as a pitch-perfect complement to Gray’s wise, weathered voice in what could be a couple of adventurous program directors away from being
the sleeper hit of the fall.
