Yay for good songs with clapping! Clapping should be in more songs!

The Beatles - Here Comes The Sun
The Unicorns - I Was Born (A Unicorn)
The Arcade Fire - Rebellion (Lies)
Broken Social Scene - Stars and Sons
Wolf Parade - Fancy Claps

One can argue that Katrina and the Waves' Walking on Sunshine has some great clapping. Gotta see High Fidelity to hear the clapping, though.

UK Subs - Party in Paris
Undertones - Teenage Kicks

And if we're allowed self promotion:

Halo of Flies - Endless Pagan Forests
Halo of Flies - Huxley Orwell Overdrive

Also, if we're allowed to include things which use 909 clap sounds, then, like, the 80's.

Fugazi - Public Witness Program is my favourite song with clapping - it just seems so out of place and yet it works perfectly. I also love the claps in Ted Leo/rx's "Squeaky Fingers".

The catchiest song by Ben Lee, "Catch My Disease" has both hand claps AND foot stomps. Two for the price of one!

Most energetic handclap passage ever: The Weakerthans' "Our Retired Explorer."

Also, DFA1979's "Romantic Rights" has handclaps in it. You just have to listen past the tremendously loud distorted bass.

but the music sucks because the keyboards don't have the cold/mechanical sound they had but a wannabe techno sound that it's pathetic for Rammstein standars.

I fucking despise that song. One of the reasons I didn't go see Queen with Paul Rogers is because they STILL end their shows with WWRY and We Are the Champions. Champions I can stand, but not as a closing track, whereas WWRY I just can't stand.
