What I'm enjoying listening to at the moment:
Wiley - Wearing My Rolex (What Would We do)
A storming tune and the riff is a nod to early 90s rave
Alphabeat - Fascination
Very catchy, incredibly cheerful and could lean towards annoying but I like it anyways.
and one from 2006
Hot Chip - "Over and Over"

Brown wins crunch vote on 42 days
Prime Minister Gordon Brown has narrowly won a House of Commons vote on extending the maximum time police can hold terror suspects to 42 days.We now have a longer detention time than Europe, Australia, New Zealand and even America.
It appears 37 Labour MPs joined forces with Conservative and Lib Dems to vote against the proposals.
But that was not enough to defeat the plan ministers claim is needed to deal with complex terror plots.
It was passed by 315 MPs to 306 votes. It will come as a big boost to Mr Brown after his recent troubles.
But shadow home secretary David Davis says it "wasn't the argument that won the day - it was the Labour whips' office" .
He said the government had lost the argument "hands down" but had "bought the vote" - with promises to Labour backbenchers as well as the nine DUP MPs who are thought to have voted with the government.
If the government has not gone up to 28 days yet detention wise why increase it to 42? It makes no sense and using the excuse 'just in case' just doesn't cut it.
