Need your help again.

So this guy at work comes up to me and says he likes the sound of MGMT's Kids. Which is fine I guess. Then he asks me to suggest 3-5 songs that sound similar to it.

I was in a meeting so my brain is fried.

Any thoughts?

i checked out what Pandora might suggest for funsies. here are some of the songs it suggested.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - "Heads Will Roll"
Postal Service - "Such Great Heights"
The Killers - "All These Things That I've Done"
Death Cab for Cute - "Soul Meets Body"
Modest Mouse - "World At Large" (me thinks "Float On" would work as well)
The Shins - "Caring is Creepy"
Spoon - "I Turn My Camera On"
Matt & Kim - "Daylight"

Ok here's another...

cool songs that have the word "BEST" in the title or main chorus.

(not Simply the Best Tina Turner fare, and definitely no Pat Benatar or Christopher Cross)

The only ones I can come up with is Best of You by the Foo's and Queen's You're my Best Friend... and those aren't exactly all that "cool"

Hence my asking the board I guess, keep em comin. This is a toughy.

It doesn't have to be, I was just commenting on that one by Blur.

My favorite Blur songs are probably the slow ones.
