My top ten power pop songs [post 1970]......


Recommended Posts

In no order....

'I Wanna Be With You'....Raspberries

'Places That Are Gone'....Tommy Keene

'Couldn't I Just Tell You'....Todd Rundgren

'I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend'....Rubinoos

'Too Late'....The Shoes [barely edges out their 'Don't Do This To Me']

'Hanging On The Telephone'....Blondie

''When You Find Out'....The Nerves

'Baby Blue'....Badfinger

'What's My Scene'....Hoodoo Gurus

'Diane'....Material Issue

'Starry Eyes'....The Records

I could make another top with songs just as good...as I'm sure I'll be reminded of.
