2003 : 31 "When U Love Somebody" by The Fruit Bats

This love song contains four lines, which is really all you need in a song that sounds like summer. This jangly love-mad song makes everything but the idea of love disappear—it is a bright, light feeling of the present, recalling a brief memory "on the bus" to fix the flighty sense of desiring and then the flood of feeling and music washes everything else away with it. It leaves only this joy of love in the movement of the music. You want to say more, but—"bite your tongue"—it needs no more, more would break the spell.
