For your consideration:
Wilco (songwriting criteria is a bit weak on this one)
Some might say Spoon
So were you mentioning "Spoon" or "Some might say spoon", which could also be a cool band name :P

This song is a strange kinda earworm; I'm not a huge Katie Melua fan but I'll happily listen to this again and again.
Incidentally, @Bill - it's Katie MELua (pronounced MELyouah, equal timing on each letter grouping but emphasis on the onset of the syllable! :) Likewise, KT Tunstall's first name is pronounced like the regular "Katie", not "K T". Just sayin'. ;-)
Pedant Englishman signing off!
Pedantic Englishman-decendant here:
You are correct. Melua rhymes with "sue her" and "kahlua" (http://www.kahlua.com/) :P

The segue: Meghana Bhat Running to this, most excellent.
Did You Know (cause I didnt): A seque is pronounced "seg-way" and means a smooth transition between two verses / pieces of music etc. This is no doubt where the creators of the Segway got the name from, as riding a segway is quite smooth and graceful I guess?

Here in the UK it's used as the theme tune for a popular sports quiz show, which is probably a sacrilege if you're a fan of this band. So I'm kind of sick of it though in fairness it isn't a bad tune. I didn't even know who it was until RP ;-)
Not sure if I'd classify Top Gear as a "sports quiz" show or are you telling me that two UK TV series' use this as their theme songs?

Dude, you aren't understanding Neil's voice and Bob's voice(s). Both of these guys have FINE voices. YOU just aren't GETTING it. Sorry to have to be so blunt. (sigh)
Could you explain what there is to "get" about their voices? I find both irritating in the extreme...

|Very nice song, but I had to check the title...|
I thought she was singing: "No sodom man comes to my town"... Not quite the meaning she was aiming for...

The dramatic tone does not suit the lyrics at all....

This is a pretty cool cover. What kills me about Bono, Oprah and their (red) products concept is that for relatively intelligent people they really have no idea how to help the African people. Curing diseases is a grand cause and all, but it won't help them get out of their cycle of poverty. The oppressive governments need to be squashed and replaced with a government that is focused on helping the people. The people need education. The countries need better infrastructure. But who really wants to support that when we can consume (red) iPods, (red) Converse sneakers, (red) Dell laptops and (red) Gap t-shirts. Nevermind that only a portion of the money gained from (red) sales actually goes to the charities. Afterall the companies participating in (red) still need their profits (and I'm not talking about Bono or Oprah).
Indeed... But the reality is that nobody is willing and/or able to go into these countries and do what needs to be done.
Thus the cycle repeats itself...

Even more annoying: I am mostly deaf in my left ear. No hearing bones and no ear drum make me experience sound on that sound quite differently, and this song triggers my instinct to turn my head to the left to better hear the singer constantly
So I pan this one more to the right than usual..
Damn, I didnt notice before reading your comments... Now it's annoying DRAT!

hate hate hate this song. But, after the beautiful Pogues song, this is actually an OK fit. Maybe 'cause I feel like I'm in an Irish pub, and this is just the filler music in between sets. And, it's almost OK. Gotta move that 1 rating to a 3 or 4 now...
Agreed, although I dont hate this song, I definitely find myself liking it alot more after the one before it...
RP is messing with my mind!
