Postal Service

Do you long for a great song takes its cues from 80s synth pop? Your search is over. The Postal Service's Such Great Heights will give you a sugar rush. I hear early New Order and early Depeche Mode.

Wow. A band called Iron & Wine does an acoustic version of this on the Garden State soundtrack; I wonder which was the original. A lover sent that version to me; it was "our song," I guess, among others. Now that we're broken up, I'm glad to have found this version--in being more upbeat and 80s it's also sadder. Sigh.

I love that song too.
