Tegan and Sara's...
..."Back in Your Head" is my nominee for the catchiest song of 2007. It's been getting heavy radio airplay here in Portland and I can think of no better chorus for an earworm than "I just want back into your head." If you haven't heard The Con, I recommend a listen. Nearly every song on the album qualifies as some of the best pop music recorded in what seems like forever.
The duo are playing a show at the Crystal Ballroom tomorrow night but I was too lazy to buy a ticket before it sold out. They're currently selling for upwards of $50 on Craigslist. Oh well, I'd probably feel completely out of place. While the show will probably attract the venue's typical crowd of hipsters and budding yuppies, Tegan and Sara's music seems tailor-made for moody 19 year-old Starbucks cashiers who have just dropped out of community college for the express purpose of pissing off their mothers.
