Album: Oracular Spectacular, 2007
Justification: Dear god, I got so sick of this song so quickly. First listen I was infatuated – it was at a party, dancing ensued – and I wasn’t surprised when it became a massive hit. The album I thought was OK, but then it got played everywhere. Every club, every shop, every radio station – and before too long I couldn’t stand the damn thing. I did rather like the second album, although it would appear I was the only person on the planet who thought so.
Anyway: then I heard it again just the other day, having avoided it for the best part of 18 months, and went “wow, this is a great song. It’s going back on the walking around playlist.” So just in case you’ve dismissed it after overkill, here it is again.
And I’m not the only person who likes the song a lot having come back to it a year or so on – the band released it on their ‘We (Don’t) Care’ and ‘Time to Pretend’ EPs in 2004 and 2005, respectively.
SONG YOU SHOULD HAVE REDISCOVERED THIS TIME IN 2010: Weekend, so here’s the 2007 archive. Battles, LCD Soundsystem, Modest Mouse – heck, it’s was a grand year.
AND HERE’S THE LAST FIVE…
