Hottest 100 - Bloc Party, Banquet

Ranked #42 hottest song of all time. Released in 2004. Apparently this music is something called "post punk revival". This just goes to show the lengths some people will go to in order to lable stuff. The music is kind of slightly reminiscent of late Clash, which I suppose was post-punk in a literal sense. But really, they're just a band making their own music, let's leave it as that. Anyway, they write songs for Kylie Minogue, you don't get much less punk than her.

This song is a kind of mash-up, it seems to me that there's at least four distinct songs in there, they don't sound much like eachother and they're not really thematically connected either. I don't know, maybe this is one of those songs you're not meant to think about. Nevertheless, I like it, though it isn't my favourite Bloc Party tune.
