I’m in love with The Clash at Demonhead from the Scott Pilgrim movie. Unfortunately, they are fictional and Metric, the band that arranged it doesn’t have that harder sound I’m liking in TCAD. What real band sounds like them? (Strong female lead on vocals, good rhythm, slightly distorted sound, anthem-y? and yes I have heard of the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs).

The Pee wee's Playhouse theme song...as performed by Cyndi Lauper (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pee-wee's_Playhouse#Soundtracks)...Cyndi's voice in that, to me, harkens back to music of the 20s. Is there a name for this sort of cutesy style of female singing? Is this a genre that I can actually seek out?

Theme song filter: I really like the song that is the opening to the Swedish Chef skit on the Muppet Show. IMDB seems to suggest that there is a recording of this song that I could buy, but I can't find anything on Amazon or Google.

Music recommendations, please. I am putting together a little video to celebrate my doggie's birthday, and need recommendations for a soundtrack, preferably acoustic guitar, something happy--something that says "I love this dog as much as it is possible for one being to love another; in fact, she saved my life" but without lyrics because I can't stand sappy crap like that. Yes, I am a lameass when it comes to music. Yes, I needed help choosing music for my own wedding. Thank you for your help.
