    Postal Service is a US electropop duo who released their debut album back in 2003. This song is taken from that album but it was inside the Billboard top 100 a month ago, so maybe it was re-released or something. Anyone heard it? It's a sweet little pop song. Not really dance though. :-?

    You can download the song from their record company's site (4.07 mb) or hear a sample here (545 kb)

    They play this track often at work, and I enjoy it every time. A friend of mine tracked down the LP, and I am pleased to report the entire album is good!

    I've warmed up again to this song, after the recent debate about whether Owl City is just a blatant Postal Service copycat or not. True, it's sad that this song never met half the success Fireflies has so far - perhaps it's time for a re-release?
    It did spend years (yes, not weeks, not months, but YEARS) at the top of the global LastFM chart, so it's obviously a popular tune to say the least!

    Amazing song, still sounds so fresh after all these years.
