Swedish pop-rock masterminds Peter Bjorn and John are back with a new release, "Gimme Some," replete with its own album-length music video. "Gimme Some" is a mighty fine project, dripping with musical charisma and sure to satisfy anybody with a taste for car commercial rock.

That said, the band seemingly will always be known for its 2006 single "Young Folks," which you can hear by typing "that hipster whistling song" into Google. (Seriously, try it.)

In honor of that indelible hook, let's celebrate Peter Bjorn and John's impending show at Newport Music Hall with an honor role of pop music's greatest whistling moments. (With apologies to Frank Churchill and the Ying Yang Twins, we've omitted both "Whistle While You Work" and "Whistle While You Twurk.")

(1) Peter Bjorn and John, "Young Folks" (2006)

We lead with a rousing drum roll and the whistling song to end all whistling songs, a sharp balance of spunk and melancholy that raised this Swedish trio's profile about a dozen notches.

(2) Juelz Santana, "There It Go (The Whistle Song)" (2005)

In a Neptunes-inspired fit of minimalism, one of Dipset's top capos weaves his rhymes around a chopped-up catcall that's irresistible to women and men alike.

(3) Billy Joel, "The Stranger" (1977)

Joel bookended the song's central lite-funk groove with a piano prologue and epilogue, both of which are all the more wistful thanks to his clutch whistling.

(4) Otis Redding, " ( Sittin' on ) T he Dock of the Bay" (1968)

Redding's whistle doesn't come in until the song's waning moments, but it's the perfect punctuation for an easygoing ode to seaside living.

(5) Earle Hagen, "The Fishin' Hole," a.k.a. "The Andy Griffith Show" theme song (1960)

This song captured whistling's innocent side better than any other, at least until Drake made it all dirty by comparing it to his effect on the female anatomy.

(6) Paul Simon, "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard" (1972)

Screw guitar solos. Simon's stroll down memory lane calls for something a little more lighthearted and free - namely, a delightful whistling interlude.

(7) Andrew Bird, "A Nervous Tic Motion of the Head to the Left" (2005)

Bird's entire career has been marked by his dual expertise in violin and whistling, both of which are flaunted in this eerie indie-pop track.

(8) Pixies, "La La Love You" (1989)

Boston's spastic weirdos showed they could also pour on the schmaltz with this winking whistling ditty.

(9) Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, "Home" (2009)

It's hard to imagine a more inviting introduction than the infectious whistling that leads off the neo-hippies' breakthrough folk-pop hit.

(10) Badly Drawn Boy, "Epitaph" (2000)

This little-known track closes Damon Gough's Mercury Prize-winning opus "The Hour of Bewilderbeast" with rickety guitar, a children's choir and some of the most haunting whistling you'll ever encounter.
