I always forget how good A Bad Dream is until I actually listen to it, the melody is quite understated (which is probably why it never quite took off in the same way Keane’s other early singles did). It’s a beautiful song and probably the last proper single from their “classic” era. That album deserved the same level of success Hopes and Fears got.

sfmartin commentary:
I was obsessed with Dragonette during the 00s and well into the 10s. Their debut is brilliant but this is the album that made me laminate my stan card. This debut single is just divine. The slowly building introduction that crashes into the full attack of guitars and synths. Martina’s cheeky vocals capturing a bombastic sensual explosion of a song.

I had to give Broken Strings a vote because I think it brings the best out of Nelly Furtado after a few years of her Timbaland heavy association which, is full of bangers, but felt a bit like she had abandoned the side of her artistry that made her popular to begin with. James Morrison has a beautiful voice, it’s a shame he didn’t have a longer sustained period of success to cement a legacy because I think nowadays he’s only really remembered for this and maybe You Give Me Something.
11-Point Wrap-up

September - Can’t Get Over - Still thrilled one of September's lesser known bops makes this - lesser known as in not "Cry For You".
Ian Van Dahl - Castles In the Sky - Don't listen to this anymore really, but it's still a trance classic.
Alcazar - Crying At The Discotheque - When I first heard this song, I figured Alcazar wasn't for me, maybe it was too camp for me at the time. Second time around I loved it and most of what the band had to offer. Case of taste palette becoming more diverse.
Dannii Minogue - I Begin To Wonder - One of the few Dannii songs I love.
Rihanna - Russian Roulette - Ooo, this 'ol spooky favorite right here. Just thinking of the gunshot part makes me jump out of my skin. So dramatic.
Benny Benassi - Satisfaction - Always on some of my first Dance CD compilations in college.
Alicia Keys - Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart - As mentioned in-thread, loved welcoming this into my life as an 11-worthy anthem.
Cassie - Long Way 2 Go - She had a couple incredible songs, this included.

Most surprised to see gone - Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart, I Begin to Wonder
