Pandora and Spotify don't get it.

I am currently obsessed with the first minute of Some Nights by Fun. I've thought a lot about it and I think it's the a capella with multiple distinct harmonies and the clap beat that really delight me. Suggest other songs / artists I'd also like.

Another band I love because I can pick out the harmonies easily is Chumbawamba (strong horns also delight me). Cecilia by Simon and Garfunkel is another favorite of mine because of the syncopated clap beats. I'll take songs or artists that have either of these qualities.
When I try to use Spotify or Pandora to pick stations based on the song, they both seem to pick up on the wrong parts of the song. I'm too lazy to calibrate the stations slowly by hand.
