The You Know Who - Dance Tonight

"Only feel alive when I hit the floor"

Some of the greatest pop songs have been written about dancing. The two go hand-in-hand naturally. A reader sent me this track (highly encouraged, by the way!) and I absolutely love it. The instrumentation is pure synth bliss with a driving rock beat behind it (think The Sounds mixed with The Pipettes) and the vocals remind me of that female singer from the 90's group Len (remember them? I hope they finally found their sunshine). The hook-laden, "that's a mouthful" verses barrel towards a chorus that seems simple and a bit boring at first but reveals itself as something quite mighty after a few repetitions. It's got a hint of that "tears on the dancefloor" shtick that artists like Robyn have mastered, though the music is far more sunny and bright and organic. This is definitely a top choice for long summer drives while the weather's still nice. Oh, and by the way, the rest of their music is brilliant as well.

Hopefully this is the lead single and breaks out for them--tjey have other good songs, but this really is the highlight.

Sounds excactly like When You Were Young by The Killers. Decent though.
