Zowie - You Treat Me (Like I'm Software)
I am obsessed with the beat of this song. It gets to you from the very first moment. It's just so... perfect (in that synthesized 80's way). Better yet, the song that accompanies it is every bit as catchy. The verses, especially, hit with a pop ferocity that we don't see enough of nowadays. The title's pretty clever, too. Zowie is from New Zealand and, though I've been aware of her music for some time now, it wasn't until I heard her full-length album (streaming on soundcloud) that I really fell in love with her. She's got the crazy Gaga-esque style but her sound is more electronic. Think Girls Aloud meets Yeah Yeah Yeahs meets Ladyhawke. In other words, you should be listening to this right now.
