This song was playing over the weekend on a restaurant soundtrack, and I knew that it was in my iTunes with a playcount over 20, but who was the band? Why couldn't I remember that? And why do I so often jam out to restaurant and grocery store soundtracks? I refused to be ashamed of said jamming out, though.
I remember midway through the song, it's Islands, of course! Circa 2006. The name might've escaped me, but I didn't forget the melody. Take a melody that's in-your-face peppy, then add woodwinds, strings, handclaps and slide whistles and I'm sold. "Instant happiness," as one YouTube commenter said.
