Default What You Wish Pop Sounded Like

I think about this fairly often. There's a lot of pop out there that just doesn't do it for me, but every so often I hear something that's catchy and poppy yet still interesting and I think, "This is what pop should be like." What are some of your picks? They can be songs that are actually popular or not.

Here's one that I've thought this about for years:

First thing that comes to mind is http://www.musicbanter.com/pop/82565-kitty.html. Björk and The Knife would be solid choices as well.

I have this with the first Goldfrapp album.
There's something really classy and mysterious about it. Every song has a great melody and the whole sound and production is just amazing.

Their later albums are probably good in their own right (not my style, so I can't really judge), but I find nothing in them of what I adore about Felt Mountain.
