I about shit my pants for joy every time I listen to Liam Finn's "I'll Be Lightning." It gets an official US release in January, but since I fell in love with it in 2007 I'm counting it. Does that mean I can count it again in 2008??

Go to Youtube and watch "Second Chance." you'll understand why I love it.
