That song by The National is fantastic. Throw in another vote for that Spoon tune too.

I literally have only heard one of these songs (and that's because I wanted to see the Daft Punk robots in the Kanye video). I'm not saying this in a 'aren't I great/aren't I lame' way, more just a further realization at how removed I am from whatever pop is supposed to be. (But as it stands, half the folks there I hate anyway!)

wow, I just happened to be listening to the first song on your list at the exact moment I clicked on it. one of the finest Madonna rip-offs in some time, though I think "Crazy Wonderful" is possibly even more delicious.
