Two Doors Down by Mystery Jets. It's just an awesome pop song. I never knew they had it in 'em.

I had an ex who loved this song, and it inexplicably rubbed off on me. It's by someone called Gigi D'Agostino and I downloaded about 6 or 7 other songs for her once. They were all absolutely dreadful.

I think I kinda like the cheesiness. And the bassiness. And the big vocal performance by the bloke. And the way it sort of stops half way through and starts up again. Fuck it, I love it all.
(Ignore the first 12 seconds, I have no idea what they are or where they're from)



Choooooooooooooooon!

*ahem* Excuse me.

a layer of chips wrote:Like 'Showgirl' by The Auteurs, for example.

You've just reminded me how much I love the Auteurs, Sam :)
Showgirl is indeed excellent...but, for me, so is a lot of their other stuff...I really like 'Chinese Bakery' in particular...

But, a good song by a band I don't usually like?
'We Are Monkeys' by Travis. Travis, to me, are a bit dull, but, this is a great singalong POP!!! song...
Love is a weakness in the knees...it's dangerous on the stairs...

Ha, L'Amour Toujours (I'll fly with you). That was a big #1 hit in the Netherlands in 2001. My God I hated that (sorry).

Freak scene is the only song I like by Dinosaur Jr.

'God Put a Smile on Your Face' by Coldplay. They normally bore me, and Chris Martin's voice annoys me, but that song is one of my favourite singles of the decade.

ok, i kind of like that panic! at the disco song caled "i write sins not tragedies". i used to think it was called closing the goddamn door. anyway, i'm not sure if i like the entire song, but that one line is catchy. yeah. i know, THE SHAME.

That song is very Morrisseyish, I think.

This pair of tits irritate me hugely, but this is actually rather lovely.

When you paste the url - ie... http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=cV6a9_nLoc4
Change the uk to www and it should work every time.

thanks, murray! i hate the ting tings too, but i like the melody and keyboardy bit in the song (i still hate the vocals/singing style)

it could've been such a good song...

Yeah, the keyboards, the melody, the bass... even the backing vocal "ooohs". It is the main vocal that kills it.

(Big shout out to The Curling Tong Tongs, my 12 year old daughter's band. They're waaaaay cooler than The Ting Tings!)
