Tonight I have to leave it

A couple of songs for a Friday.

First is everyone’s second favorite Swedes, The Shout Out Louds, doing a spot-on Cure impersonation with “Tonight I have to leave it.” And they get marvelous results in the upbeat vein of “Friday I’m in Love” or “Just Like Heaven” or their very own stellar “Very loud.” It’ll stick with you. Dig the song, if not the Usual Suspects-style video.

"Rumours say that you're very sorry.
Oh no you're not sorry, no you're not."


Next is my pick for rave-up, rock-down jam of the summer. It’s called “Over and Over” by the London group Hot Chip. I’ve been listening to it a lot this summer but it’s goddamn infectious so I figured I had to share it. It’s especially catchy if like, say you’re stuck in traffic on the 405 on your way down to see Chivas take on Beckham and the Galaxy yesterday and all of a sudden you get past the jammed up part and this song just happens to come on as you get back up to speed. Again, dig the song if not “fun-with-green-screen” video.

Rock on.
