The Futureheads - 'Heartbeat Song'
Unfortunately in a clean up of my hard drive (and transfer to a new one) I deleted what I was going to say about the Keep Pop Loud Track of the Year 2010: 'Heartbeat Song' by The Futureheads.
But there's little that I need to say really. This is quick simple and so very perfect. Like a modern day Buzzcocks this isn't about sonic exploration or reinventing the pop wheel. This is just a punk song about love. That's what pop music is for me. I like great songs and 'Heartbeat Song' is one of the best.
Plus, it snuck into the charts too. Big victory for the band who are self-releasing.
