Pop music ftw

I'm not on about your average radio balls, I'm on about decent, poppy awesome music. Here's two examples of stuff I've come across lately:

Imogen Heap - Speeding Cars (check out 'Headlock')

The song is by a band called 'Lady and the Lostboys', and it's great (incidentally, the video is a promo video for the guy who did our last album, and will be doing our next one - looks like the most awesome recording environment ever!:))
