Four footsteps leave the disco

A-maz-ing song of the moment: Daggers' "Money." Like many of the best songs to hit the blog/Internet world (see also: Alphabeat's "Fascination," back in September 2006, for example), it's a #1 Hits From Another Planet discovery. Seriously, go listen to it and then buy it from iTunes (no matter what store) or 7Digital, because it is very much worth your time. It's got one of those distinctive male vocals that immediately makes you think of the '80's, and the rest of the song definitely goes with that (Nick compares them to Duran Duran and the Human League); the chorus is so fantastic that I can't get enough of it, but the whole song is just too delicious to miss out on.

It's also another reason of why any countdown I do is going to ultimately be flawed--there are brilliant gems of songs like this out there that I won't hear until after I've created said countdown.
