The Lonely Island ft Akon - I Just Had Seeeeeeex

this song makes me laugh so much:

Bombay Bicycle Club - Shuffle

The London band have just released one of their most ambitious songs to date. The song demands attention--big time-- and combines an energetic piano loop with house beats.

Bombay Bicycle Club - Shuffle by Bombay Bicycle Club

A Different Kind Of Fix is out 29th August.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Scar Tissue

this is how I woke up feeling

Listen: The Strokes cover A Salty Salute (with a hidden bonus)

here is an mp3 from May 19, 2004 of The Strokes covering Guided By Voices' "A Salty Salute". At the end of it, he wishes some of his friends (including Nick's then girlfriend and current wife Amanda De Cadenet) but the very best bit is at the very end, when Julian introduced "Hard to Explain" by revealing that he's getting married
