  • magnus

    1st~ Animal
    This has to be the best. It just has to.
    PB&J, Punks Jump Up, Crookers. Everyone
    wants a piece of it. I’m on the bandwagon

    2nd~ Song For No One
    Its the catchiest friendliest toe tapper.
    It makes me want to smile.

    3rd~ Miike Snow vs. Vampire Weekend
    My favorite collab in awhile.
    Kids Don’t Stand A Chance made party proof.

  • .Oh my goodness! I am a hugeeee Mike fan. Probably his oungest , also. I’m fourteen. I discovered him in Urban Outfitters and I’ve been hooked ever since. Though its his most famous, I’d have to go with animal. The lyrics really speak to me and I used them in numerous art projects. Wow, I love you guys!

    • just to give you a heads up it’s them not him ;)

  • Robbie

    Animal.

    I will give you a huge hug if you pick me!

  • Jibb

    woah, nobody has favourited “a horse is not a home” that’s definitely my favorite, though i do not wish to win as i don’t live in america :( /sob

  • Burial :)

  • I think, A Horse Is Not A Home, because what the hell does that even mean?! But I love it.
    Thanks for this give away!

  • MEGZ

    “Animal” makes me dance around like a lunatic. I hear it in my head when I walk down the street, and instantly shake my moneymaker. True story.

  • JoeSchmoe

    “Song for know one”, “Animal” is a close second and “Horse without a home” with amazing lyrics such as “Oh god, i think i’m dying, and these drinks were just poured…” brilliant.

  • Cathy

    Animal!
    I’m a hot girl that wants to take her boyfriend to go see animal!
    (this is not a clever rouse!)

  • Marina

    Animal for sure!

  • jordan

    ‘Animal’ is the song that introduced me to Miike Snow; so infectious! ‘A Horse Is Not A Home’ is such a fantastic song. So two? yes.

  • catherine

    Animal is the best!
    p.s. it’s not like my boyfriend asked me to enter because he really wants to go or anything…

  • CONGRATULATIONS to Kristy Davies! You win the pair of tix (picked at random).
