When You Were Young- The Killers
How To Save a Life- The Fray


I'm really liking both of those, too ("How to Save a Life" sounds almost exactly like "Over My Head", but that's a cool song so I don't mind).


If I had to pick one favorite song from the mid '00s it'd be "Stacy's Mom" - both for sound and lyrics. :D If The Cars had been an '00s pop/punk band, I bet that's how they'd sound.

I will add one more ... "Move Your Feet" by Danish dance/pop duo Junior Senior.  It got overplayed.  It still gets overplayed, but I loved it then, I still love it now.  When the album came out, I rushed to HMV to get it
