Electric Youth: Fade Away Our top b-side pick by the band that got major exposure by appearing on the Drive soundtrack.
Pure pop bliss! Because Beth Ditto is fierce and she completely reinvented herself for the dance floor and outshined Madonna — Got to love it. Best of all, he gave away the single for free!

Queen of Hearts, if you are reading us, you enticed us with a fantastic video teaser, but then broke Souki - Spotlights (File) hearts by never releasing the full video.
Can we have a full video please? Hurts: Sunday Sunday was the last single taken off of the excellent debut album by Hurts. We were hoping for an album, but alas it has yet to materialize.
