SIMPLE MATH - Merilille

4 Do You Want To - Franz Ferdinand

One of the catchiest songs in this list by a huge margin. Franz Ferdinand might not be the biggest band around, but they have quality that many acts these days lack.

A very underrated British band from Scotland. Franz Ferdinand have more quality songs than all artists across the pond from here.

When it comes to party music, they don't come any more entertaining than Do You Want To from Franz Ferdinand. - Stewie0

A true anthemic song and I'm suprised that the Americans haven't succumbed to this kind of music yet.

The sample... feels weird. If that's the actual version, then forget this being the best thing ever, more like a 3/5 - ProPanda
