The Bird and the Bee - Polite Dance Song
------------Manners never go out of style, and dawning upon a new decade, you'll want to start things off with some sweet-talking please and thank-yous (especially if your New Year's antics require an apology for making a *ahem* mess of things near the vicinity of a toilet).
If Inara George and Greg Kurstin make any manner faux pas while welcoming 2010, at least the L.A. duo has "Polite Dance Song" to sweetly encourage us to rock out while the ball drops. "Polite Dance Song" sways slowly between a smoky cabaret tease and a contently-smiling party cool down. Get it from the album that's overflowing with courtesy Please Clap Your Hands.
Happy New Year, everyone! Celebrate with sparkling cider (you under 21-ers who are stuck with mom and dad), copious amounts of loved ones, and a big enough TV to watch the ball drop in Times Square.
Tracks That Will Make You Say "Thanks a bunch!"
Diamond Dave, Ray Gun, My Love
