the 5 songs rocking your world right now

don't list your all-time faves - we can find those in a couple dozen other threads.

what 5 songs are leaving bootprints in your *** this week? they can be old, new or anywhere in between...and don't say "oh, there's so many" and then proceed to list every song you heard 5 seconds of during the last 7 days. There aren't so many. There'll always be just a handful that really grab you short-term, and that's what we wanna know about. Here's mine:

"ordinary madness" - Jojo Effect
"the point of it all" - Amanda Palmer
"Advice for the young at heart" - Tears For Fears
"Feel alive" - Anneke van Giersbergen
"Headlong Flight" - Rush

^Twinkle Twinkle Little Star was my first "favorite song" ;D

For me it's:

Modern Love- David Bowie
Roundabout- Yes
I Don't Remember- Peter Gabriel
Us And Them- Pink Floyd
Never In A Million Years- The Boomtown Rats

With honorable mentions to (because there's so many! ;) ) Resistance- Muse, Layla, and Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick- Ian Dury and the Blockheads. (Thank my dad's vinyl collection for that one!)

Pinwheels - Smashing Pumpkins
Live to Rise - Soundgarden
Youth Without Youth - Metric
45 - Gaslight Anthem
Colours - Grouplove

At the start of this year I was really starting to feel like alternative music was done for like so many had been saying for years.

Between some of the bands I listed above and a bunch of others (Airborne Toxic Event, M83, Silversun Pickups, The Joy Formidable, etc) I'm finding I'm more excited for the future of music than I've been in years.
