34. Ivy, "I've Got a Feeling"

L'amour, c'est bleu. A bittersweet guitar-chime gem from one of the decade's great lost pop records, Ivy's Apartment Life, whose mood is captured by the cover photo of a mod French girl putting on her makeup – glossy yet introspective. The dream-team trio features Adam Schlesinger (moonlighting from Fountains of Wayne), Andy Chase and chanteuse Dominique Durand, whose Parisienne accent adds that touch of tres tragique to their young-adult romantic malaise. "I've Got a Feeling" made a memorable appearance in the first episode of Felicity, but a melody this great would make an impression anywhere. If you're living your life without this song, you're blowing it big-time.
