    'Funkytown' is the only one I like.
    I'm totally meldody crazy and tend to hear a single song to death and then some.

    I've finally given Billy Talent's 'Veronica' a rest in favor of

    - Kicking the heart out / Rogue Wave
    - Gamble everything for love / Ben Lee
    - Babylon / As seen on Mad Men
