Sapri Li Ahuva (Tell me, beloved) by one of my fave Israeli singers, Dindin Aviv. For those who don't understand Hebrew, here is a transliteration (courtesy hebrewsongs.com): Tell me beloved, with your beautiful eyes What does your heart desire?

The science-loving band OK Go (whose newest video messes with time perception) has another hilarious video out there. Not a music video, mind you. Just a video. It appears they had a bit of a run-in with Animal, of the muppets, at the Webby Awards. Those dudes are hilarious.
Drove down PCH with a friend on Friday night blasting this song just as the moon was rising above the horizon. Fantastic. Alejandro - Lady Gaga
