    I like the people who get into arguments over whether or not the events in the song are ironic or whether or not the irony is found in none of the song's events being ironic but rather unfortunate.

    Hippe, they're being called the new Joy Division and they won the BBC Sound of 2009 poll.

    2008's winners included Adele, The Ting Tings, Glasvegas, Foals, Vampire Weekend and MGMT.

    This should be in the OP:

    My Last Duchess
    Robert Browning

    That's my last duchess painted on the wall,
    Looking as if she were alive. I call
    That piece a wonder, now: Frà Pandolf's hands
    Worked busily a day, and there she stands.
    Will't please you sit and look at her? I said
    "Frà Pandolf" by design, for never read
    Strangers like you that pictured countenance,
    The depth and passion of its earnest glance,
    But to myself they turned (since none puts by
    The curtain I have drawn for you, but I)
    And seemed as they would ask me, if they durst,
    How such a glance came there; so, not the first
    Are you to turn and ask thus. Sir, 'twas not
    Her husband's presence only, called that spot
    Of joy into the Duchess' cheek: perhaps
    Frà Pandolf chanced to say "Her mantle laps
    "Over my lady's wrist too much," or "Paint
    "Must never hope to reproduce the faint
    "Half-flush that dies along her throat": such stuff
    Was courtesy, she thought, and cause enough
    For calling up that spot of joy. She had
    A heart how shall I say? too soon made glad,
    Too easily impressed; she liked whate'er
    She looked on, and her looks went everywhere.
    Sir, 'twas all one! My favor at her breast,
    The dropping of the daylight in the West,
    The bough of cherries some officious fool
    Broke in the orchard for her, the white mule
    She rode with round the terrace all and each
    Would draw from her alike the approving speech,
    Or blush, at least. She thanked men good! but thanked
    Somehow I know not how as if she ranked
    My gift of a nine-hundred-years-old name
    With anybody's gift. Who'd stoop to blame
    This sort of trifling? Even had you skill
    In speech which I have not to make your will
    Quite clear to such an one, and say, "Just this
    "Or that in you disgusts me; here you miss,
    "Or there exceed the mark" and if she let
    Herself be lessoned so, nor plainly set
    Her wits to yours, forsooth, and make excuse,
    E'en then would be some stooping; and I choose
    Never to stoop. Oh sir, she smiled, no doubt,
    Whene'er I passed her; but who passed without
    Much the same smile? This grew; I gave commands;
    Then all smiles stopped together. There she stands
    As if alive. Will't please you rise? We'll meet
    The company below, then. I repeat,
    The Count your master's known munificence
    Is ample warrant that no just pretense
    Of mine for dowry will be disallowed;
    Though his fair daughter's self, as I avowed
    At starting, is my object. Nay we'll go
    Together down, sir. Notice Neptune, though,
    Taming a sea-horse, thought a rarity,
    Which Claus of Innsbruck cast in bronze for me!

    Cause it is some damn fine irony.
