Song of The Day: "Wrong Club" by The Ting Tings

Clarification: That is not a member of The Ting Tings

2008 called and it's here to say that The Ting Tings are back. Responsible for the British alternative-pop revival in America, The Ting Tings have really been gone from the music scene for too long. Let's all remember how amazing "Great DJ" and "That's Not My Name" were. Honestly, the last time I saw from the group was when they performed on SNL after their first album had been released. Their rebellious punk attitude had let them stand out among the blasé R&B that was taking over the radio at the time. However, they took it a little too far after their second album never really made an impact in either the UK or the US.

Good thing pop stars learn from their mistakes. The duo have reportedly spent time in the party capital of the world Ibiza crafting their new album and it is sure to be a much more danceable affair, especially if "Wrong Club" is any indication of what's to come. A nice 80's throwback, it admittedly sounds like Daft Punk's summer hit "Get Lucky" but with that groovy baseline and "oh-oh's" it is less in your face with the whole "breezy" summer jam thing. Hopefully, the duo can match Daft Punk's success, especially with the bizarre fun video. If all else fails, Katie "Ting Ting" can surely become a beauty guru and teach us how to get that wild mane!
