My wife says I am conservative when it comes to music, and it's absolutely true. I don't like much of the modern stuff, music production could have stopped after Pink Floyd and I wouldn't have missed much in my collection. That said, according to my wife I enjoy new songs and groups only when the music they play is old-fashioned. I discovered recently (well, almost two years ago) through the BBC short-lived series Sorted (a shame they axed that one, by the way), the tune Bang Bang, You're Dead, by Dirty Pretty Things. Love it to bits. I don't know exactly what I love so much about it: it's sort of good old rock beat, it has a bit of a Ennio Morricone feel, juuuuuust enough to be perceived, there is the British accent, and it all mixes so well.
So here you are, here's the official clip from youtube, so you can judge for yourself:
