Every two weeks, Vulture music critic Nitsuh Abebe will drop his Songs on Repeat list — composed of the five tunes that he can't seem to get out of his head. This week, there's some R. Kelly and one track named after a Robin Williams movie. (It's not Jakob the Liar, no.) 1. Kitty Pryde’s “Okay Cupid”Look, it’s possible you’ll soon read a lot of strange things about this young Florida redhead and her cloudy, weedy raps.

Cocorosie’s “We Are on Fire”Followers of this eccentric sister act might be surprised by how much of a pop song this is, right down to the big, hooky chorus. »
