5 Good Songs You Never Heard: Part 3

This is the 3rd edition of a series of blog posts recommending good songs that most people have never heard.  In case you missed the first two, here are the links: 1 , 2

First up is a song by a punk band that has been around for a long time, and is known well in that scene, but not too well known in mainstream.  The band is MxPx and the song I recommend is "Party, My House, Be There".  It sounds a little different than most of their songs.  It's really catchy and fun to sing along with.

Next is a song by a producer named Ford featuring a rapper named Fam.  I found this guy on myspace music a few years ago and this track stood out to me.  The song combines the genres of electronica and rap into one and the result is very nice.

You may know the next artist from his Youtube videos.  Nice Peter is a musician/comedian who recently gained a huge following on Youtube.  His popularity is well deserved considering he is a talented artist and all around nice guy.  Before his Youtube days, he was making music and playing live shows around the country.  He recorded several albums.  This is one of his earlier songs about former president George W. Bush.  The song is epic.  If you like this one, be sure to check out his other songs.

Yelle is French singer who makes pop/electronic music.  I found her by chance after hearing this remix which was done by an artist named Drrt Devil.  Yelle's music is up beat and happy.  Her vocals are all in French, but the songs are still enjoyable even if you don't know the language.  Here is the remix that got me into her music.
Yelle - Ce Jeu (Drrt Devil Remix)
Lastly is song with a rather interesting name.  It made the rounds and became popular in the music blog scene a while back.  The artist is K-OS and the song is "I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman".  The song is not about Natalie oddly enough.  It does however make good use of the sample from the song California by Phantom Planet.
