The Hoff still loves you

It's Valentine's Day, in case you've missed it, so I thought I'd post some love songs. It's not really a top 10, more like 10 tracks from the top of my head (or Winamp rather). I've chosen some more uptempo tracks to make your heart beat faster for several reasons.

The Concretes - Keep Yours (Pacific! Remix)

BMX - Refero Beach

Bikini - Tonight

Sally Shapiro - He Keeps Me Alive

Coeur De Pirate - Comme Des Enfants (Le Matos Andy Carmichael Remix)

Anoraak - Nightdrive With You

Hellogoodbye - Here (In Your Arms) (Young Americans Remix)

Cut Copy - Out There On The Ice

Whitest Boy Alive - Golden Cage (Fred Falke Remix)

The last one is my favourite track at the moment; French electro funk maestro Breakbot's remix of Swedish indietronica act Pacific!. I slept on this one, missing the first few appearences in the blogosphere in June last year, and the (moderate) hype in December. Complete with trademark basslines and piano melodies, it's a true gem. 27 plays in the last seven days according to says it all...

Pacific! - Hold Me (Breakbot Remix)
