In preparation for a drive to Richmond, Virginia, for a memorial service today (we left yesterday, spent the night, and returned him this afternoon), We re-subscribed to XM Radio. During the drive we listened to Alt Nation a lot, which has introduced me to a few new songs that I love, including New Politics‘ “Yeah Yeah Yeah”:

This song is infectious! New Politics is a band from Denmark but are now living in New York. And, not surprisingly, I think the lead singer, David Boyd, is hot! I’ve just purchased their album on iTunes.

Here’s another video of New Politics singing Yeah Yeah Yeah for the SXSW 2010 Showcasing Artist:

Here are the lyrics:

(Yeah yeah yeah)
What you doin to me?
(Yeah yeah yeah)
What you want from me?
(Yeah yeah yeah)
What you doin to me?
What you want from me?
You’re just f@#king killing me!

Everyday people
Attempt to find the ultimate sign
As the kids come down from the road of the block
I get chills when I hear them cry
As I picked him up I cleared his eyes
If it ain’t worth the try?
In these dying times it’s hard to change
You’re calling in my ear and I hear.

(Yeah yeah yeah)
Now we’re falling to the ground
(Yeah yeah yeah)
So get your hands up!

Chorus
(Yeah yeah yeah)
What you doin to me?
(Yeah yeah yeah)
What you want from me?
(Yeah yeah yeah)
What you doin to me?
What you want from me?
You’re just f@#king killing me!

Oh no officer, please no don’t draw your guns
I’m on the run it’s a state of mind
See these banking corporates fake and whine
They make you live the life they define
Do you even know what’s going on?
I don’t mean to sound miserable
It’s written all along and I hear

(Yeah yeah yeah)
Now we’re falling to the ground
(Yeah yeah yeah)
So get your hands up!

Chorus

(guitar break)

This time around we shall march to battle
And bring victory to the people
Isn’t that what you want?
Isn’t that what we’ve wanted all along?
Watch the outcome
I’ll give you the outcome!

(Yeah yeah yeah)
Now we’re burning to the ground
(Yeah yeah yeah)
Is this the end?
(Yeah yeah yeah)
I guess we’ll never wake up
(Yeah yeah yeah)
So get your hands up!
