A Global Army of Veteran Rockers
Sometimes a great pop song seems almost to be a fluke, considering the bands history. For example, the Meat Puppet's "Backwater" is a tremendous pop song...but not known for their catchy tunes...
Myracle Brah-Whisper Softly
I threw that one on my Roland 2480 and added backing vocals to it years ago...now it sounds weird without them.
I loves me some Silver Sun...and my choice for Pop Perfection under their Flag would be 17 Times:
I never knew a video existed for this song. This is one of my top 5 albums of all time, and I don't feel it gets enough mention, even in the Power Pop community.
Pretty much anything by the Go-Go's would qualify for this thread, but since this is the 100th reply, I'll go with this one:
Belinda Carlisle solo > the Go Gos
That Jane Wiedlin tune Rush Hour > the Go Gos
All due respect, Harry, but that's just nonsense. Nothing in either of their subsequent careers can touch the first two Go-Go's albums.
BTW, here'smy favorite Go-Go's track, the Stiff version of "Lust to Love" -- also falls under Pop Perfection:
Or this, another early Stiff single:
Crowded House could have a massive showing here--but this is my favorite version of my favorite song of theirs:
