k-OS - I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman

Easily the best song title of 2009.

Lise Westzynthius - Childlike Curves

If Danish singer Lise Westzynthius track was released this year not 2007 , then it might even take the craziest video of the year away from Major Lazer's "Pon De Floor" maybe.

The Big Pink - Velvet

London's The big pink with this soaring gorgeous single, it is going to be one of my favourite tracks of 2009 when it comes down to it. There debut album A Brief History of Love was released in september on 4AD.
