Hmmm, this is a hard one. I will have to think about it in order to get a top ten list though for originality I know The Decemberists - "The Mariner's Revenge Song" will be on it.

9) Killers - Smile Like You Mean It

Nice songs indeed some of their allure was brutally taken away though when I found out they were Microsoft's guests for the Xbox launch in L.A.

It's not the fall that hurts - ceasars was nice
as was two more years by the bloc party no matter how borringly notorious they must be

"Going up"- Coil.

The last song John Balance recorded before his death. It's an absolutely extraordinary re-working of the theme to "Are you being served?", turning it into a meditation on what he (correctly, as it turned out) predicted as his forthcoming death.
