Bucky Awards 2010: kanae's prediction- best song

ChampLet's start with my prediction for the Bucky Award 2010 as tolls were closed on Sunday night.
Best Song
I must say, that it is one of the hardest recipients to guess - Indie music giants, such as Broken Social Scene, the Arcade Fire, Tegan & Sara, and Crystal Castles hit songs are all nominated in this category.
Although this award has such strong competitors, I would vote for Tokyo Police Club's "Wait Up (Boots of Danger)

I've over-listened to this song since the new album, " Champ" came out. Mentioned in the past post, ( Click here) I was especially a big fan of the song, " Favorite Colour". But this song was played everywhere! ( well still being played everywhere, including the Edge.) I am impressed with the Toronto indie band's progress since the last album. Their superior ability to create such catchy songs is on a par with the Pop rock French Band, The Phoenix. The humming part of the song makes me so happy every time I listen to!  

I am also very very excited about the fact that the band FINALLY announced a Toronto show on January 15th, 2011! ( They played with the Flamming Lip in July and the Phoenix in October as an opening band though) I can't wait to see how good they are in terms of their live performance! I will of course cover it on my blog, so don't forget to stay tuned..
