One Republic, two songs - hard choice

Like most of us I first noticed One Republic when Timbaland's version of their song "Apologise" became a big hit on the charts and radio, but the American band are no overnight sensations and they have served their time in the music industry. The lead singer, Ryan Tedder, co-wrote Bleeding Love for Leona Lewis. So it's hardly surprising that their new album Waking Up (out next week) is getting a lot of attention. I have selected "Secrets" from the album as my Best New Pop Song of the Week but equally I could have chosen the first single from it "All the Right Moves". In fact I was torn between the two and almost went for the earlier song which is very pop-orientated, more upbeat with a great hook and a wonderful sort of organ sound at the beginning. In the end though I plumped for Secrets which I figured will stand the test of time better using my tried and trusted rule - if you find a song immediately catchy, like All the Right Moves, you will quickly tire of it. Actually I'm listening to it now and I'm not sick of it - it sounds great actually particularly that start. Maybe I stuffed up. Listen to them both and tell me what you think.
