Here are some things I’ve been loving in the last few months or so, all in handy youtube format:

Hey, can I embed things in your comments?  Let’s try…

Githead- “Drive By

Jesu- “Deadeyes [not bad for an unofficial video]

The Futureheads- “

That last one is a couple years old now, but new to me.

Heh, left the title of that last one out.  “Meantime” is the song.

Now, is this comment going to appear first, since the other is awaiting moderation (presumably due to its embedded videos)?

As a fellow pop junkie, I’ll recommend:

The Softlightes
(Here’s their clip for ‘Heart Full of Sound‘, and ‘Microwave‘)

Going by the mood of the original post and the responses, I’ll suggest:

Cherry Lips, by Archie Bronson Outfit

http://youtube.com/watch?v=xK8VzuF9zqE

To Build A Home, by The Cinematic Orchestra and Patrick Watson

http://youtube.com/watch?v=_7xDK8dzwYg

Tunnels, by Arcade Fire

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iz-WDk7Tbsc

And for something random and cracky ( decide for yourself whether that’s a recommendation ), the Jem theme-tune covered by Freezepop

Everybody in Canada has heard the following song (I’m barely exaggerating), but maybe not so many in the U.S. It’s also been a while since it was released.

Therefore I give you “Hello Time Bomb” by the Matthew Good Band:

Possibly forgotten, or perhaps a song you never knew about, is “Shuffle It All” by Izzy Stradlin and the Juju Hounds, recorded after Stradlin became the first of many to decide that no amount of money was worth putting up with Axl’s bullshit and left G ‘n’ F’n R:

…Was there any particular reason my comment wasn’t allowed through?

It’s up now. The links accidentally put it into the moderation queue and I missed it.
