The song that has been stuck in my head most recently is 'Stop for a Minute' by Keane. It's too catchy :(

Why oh why oh why can I not stop listening to the Disco a Go Go theme from Timesplitters Future Perfect?!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cE34_JfBdmY

It's probably one of the best soundtracks ever made, but even then, I still shouldn't listen to it as much as I do.

If anyone's familiar with him, Caribou put out a new album a few days ago, and it's got a few catchy tunes. "Odessa", "Kaili", "Found Out", and "Leave House" are all alternating through my head now...pretty good electronic/synth pop-ish music. Worth checking out if you're into that sort of thing. The album's called "Swim", if you were wondering, by the way.

Oh, so many, but I can't be bother writing all of them. I'll try to generalize.

Anything by Missy Higgins, or Martin Sexton >recorded live is a must<
The whole Klazz Brother's "Cuba Meets Classical" cd.
Lots of stuff by K'naan.

The latest one has been "Underwater" by Izzi Dunn.

At the moment I can't stop listening to Failure by Laura Marling. It's just lyrical and vocal excellence over simple acoustic brilliance.

For some reason or another, The Flashbulb's Kirlian Voyager has been on repeat numerous times this week. It's fairly short in length but makes up for in quality.

Getting Old - http://jrad.emolyncher.com/The%20Disgra ... %20Old.mp3

Mods... The Disgracefuls no longer play, but I play w/their guitarist and this is a site hosted by me, for him. He uploaded all of these songs to share publicly. Using personal judgment, I'd say this is fine, but if you have a problem, let me know.

"Satch Boogie", "If i could fly" and "Always with me, always with you" from Joe Satriani.
Then there's some stuff from Dream Theater, especially "Stream of Consciousness" from "Train of Thought".
"Biaxident", "When the Water Breaks" (tried to play this on Guitar for some time) and "Paradigm Shift" from LTE are also just mindblowing...

Currently I have "Mr. Fancy Pants" stuck in my head by Jonathan Coulton. Before that was the sixth movement of Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time.
I require something interesting here. Alas, I have no intelligence or patience to deal with it.

Young Blood by The Naked And Famous (NZ band, getting lots of airplay now thanks to this song)
I got this just last week or the week before, and within a day it was my most played song ever on iTunes. There's just something about it that I love.
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.
