This I must see! :o :o

Add to the list, even though these sound maybe a bit funny (?), but still Madonna, (some) Mariah Carey and yet again CINDY LAUPER!  :D I think Cindy Lauper already deserves to be added on the influence list or at least the 'listening to' list :P
Here's the source of this:

(The introduction lady says "Andrew and Nick"  :o )

Also from the Video Hits interview James mentions UB40 as surf music influence but Andrew rolls eyes to this (?)
I think UB40 is more like reggae than surf...
James also mentions The Pacies (??). And Matt mentions Telstar ;)

Thank you very much for all this information ;D  Cindy Lauper is in artists they have covered but I will add her to the enjoys section too since you asked and she comes up so often when they talk music.  However, Mariah Carey was an obvious joke so she doesn't get a place here.  I think the Madonna was mentioned just in general as in them discussing pop music. 

As for the second video, most bands they mentioned were already included but I added Felt under influences.  I believe the Telstar reference was about The Tornados instrumental record produced by Joe Meek, so I added The Torandos to influences since Joe Meek is already included.  James actually says he likes The Pixies and they were already included.  UB40 I think was a joke...I don't know though, maybe if some people really feel differently we could add it, but for now I will leave that off. 

I think that covered everything.  It's tough making calls when it comes to these boys since they joke so often but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Oooh it was The Pixies, I couldn't hear that clearly :P
But thanks for adding some up. Yeah, it's sometimes impossible to know if they're joking or saying stuff for real, but that's just funny  ;D

UB 40 was definitely a joke and James mentions how he eventually grew fond of Pixies' Surfer Rosa.

It sounds like he's saying "dance to the beat" or "dance in the street" or both over and over again. Maybe it's another version of Dancing on the Beach?

Perhaps they were just fooling around an experimenting with different sounds of the song...but not sure either...Love it either way!
