This song is so beautiful. If you haven't heard it yet, give it a listen.

#5: M83 - Midnight City.
Is that a sax solo and why does the solo remind me of the film 'The lost boys'?


#2: The Black Keys - Lonely Boy

#1: Gotye - Somebody That I Used To Know {Ft. Kimbra} 
An Aussie number 1!


  1. OMG do you know I downloaded the M83 album and was listeneing to it and I listened to Midnight city and totally thought the same thing, it reminds me of the lost boys movie, well the music. I think there is a scene where they are at the fair when Michael meets Summer I think her name is and there is a band and there is a sax solo!! haha

    1. :-) Glad it wasn't just me that felt the 'lost boys vibe'... and hey, you got that scene I had in my head down pat! That crazy muscular sax guy soloing at the fair!
