I keep coming back to Ray Guns are Not Just the Future, maybe because it motivates me to get out of my chair and shake it! OK, maybe it's more like chair dancing and tapping my feet, but you get the picture.
The dance hooks on this one, though, are pretty irresistible.
Just asked the buttoned-up guy doing Dance Dance Revolution in this video.

This is my mix tape to help from cold to warmer weather. and "Winter '05" . The warm keyboard in "We Gathered in Spring" and "March (A Prelude to Spring)"
- "White Winter Hymnal," by Fleet Foxes is a beautiful, curl-up-by-the-fire song.
- "Winter '05," by Ra Ra Riot, longs for spring.
- "We Gathered in Spring," by Midlake, could melt snow by itself.
- "March (A Prelude to Spring," by Jon Foreman, brings enough sunlight to make things grow.
