Love This? Neon Trees, ”Everybody Talks”
Glam guitar anthem that started with a whisper — and ended up in rock-radio ubiquity.
Try This! Twenty One Pilots, ”Guns for Hands”
A similar big-grab chorus, with extra angst and a zippy little keyboard refrain.

Love This? Carly Rae Jepsen, ”Call Me Maybe”
The shiniest piece of candy in 2012’s sugar-rush pop pile.
Try This! Hands up, ”My World”
Feathery synths + bright vocals + enough crushed-out lyrics to fill a heart-clasp diary.

Love This? Fleetwood Mac, ”Rhiannon”
The ultimate ode to a Me Decade siren, sung by a lady who would know.
Try This! Kate Earl, ”One Woman Army”
More yacht-rock grooviness and goddess talk, plus ”stand by your man” promises.

Love This? A Tribe Called Quest, ”Electric Relaxation”
Rap meets jazz-cat cool under the black light on a hazy hip-hop classic.
Try This! Main Attrakionz, ”Do It for the Bay”
Hypnotic Native Tongues-style sway from Oakland ”cloud rap” breakouts.

Love This? Arctic Monkeys, ”Fake Tales of San Francisco”
Arch young lads offer spiky bass lines, debauched nightlife travelogues.
Try This! Jake bugg, ”Two Fingers”
Swingy Oasis-tinged melodies via another charmingly floppy-haired young Brit rocker.
