Letters Have No Arms is grateful for...

 The Format's Sam Means and Nate Ruess still continuing to make music individually
fun. -  At Least I'm Not As Sad (As I Used to Be)
Sam Means - Yeah Yeah

 Covers of songs we love that pay tribute to the original rather than extracting its guts with a polished spoon and eating them raw
Little My - New Slang (The Shins cover)

 Bubbly Spanish songs so cute you want to stick a pen in your eye
Queta & Teo - Es Cucu de L'Avi
Jóvenes Y Sexys - Amor Platonico
Papa Topo - Oso Panda

 Bands still making songs interesting enough to only "get" after repeated listens
Papa Vs Pretty - Arrestem
Sister Suvi - Deadwood

 Finding this line in a song: 
 "I bet that you look good on the dancefloor...but nowhere else."

  ...and the rest of the song's admittedly not deep but still very entertaining lyrics:
"Skin-tight jeans and MySpace hair
They have brought this over us
They're teenagers and they don't care
But what about us?
Spend their money at HMV
On bands they've seen in NME
They think they're into indie rock
But we know it's just kinder rock
Coldplay, Keane and Kaiser Chiefs
Kasabian, Jet and Razorlight
Kings of Leon, Dead 60’s: the kids are all shite"

Being alive in 2009: the year rap and politics mix.
At least in the USA, they do. Obama calls Kanye a jackass. Common speaks about the president's influence on hip-hop! What next? Obama sporting a gold necklace that spells "PIMP" at the next press conference? FUN!!! Oh wait, apparently *bling* is no longer in.

Common: "I also don't find as much gangsta talk. You see the whole chain-shining-and-rim era is gone. That's like super-played out. Just to have that, I think, is part of the Obama effect."
