The Refreshments – Banditos

I can’t remember when I first heard this song, but it was on the radio, and I remember thinking how utterly catchy it was, and the lyrics rocks too. At the time, I was into Nine Inch Nails and Smashing Pumpkins, so I was surprised that I enjoyed this song so much. For some reason the song didn’t get much radio play when it came out, but it has managed to stick in my collection of awesome rock songs.

Moby – My Weakness

One thing I really like about Moby is that he doesn’t restrict his music taste to any one style or genre. He just goes with what feels and sounds good, and that’s why I think the whole Play album is extraordinary. Not one song is alike, it spans a number of genres, and can never get boring. One of my favorite songs on the album is My Weakness, a chillout ambient tune that’s both pretty and haunting.

Postal – Angel Pumping Gas

Angel Pumping Gas was largely thought to be by The Postal Service, but it’s actually by a band formerly called Postal, and now known as Lindsey Pool. It’s an insanely catchy love song with great lyrics that I find myself playing it often.
