Not familiar with the elusive musical genre known as Power Pop? Here’s Michael Chabon’s definition:
“True power pop is rueful and celebratory at the same time, glorifying desire and frustration, which is why so many power-pop songs concern themselves with the subject of Tonight, or Tomorrow Night, or Saturday Night, or some other night that will only be perfect for as long as it can be deferred.”
Anyway, in digging through the old songs I decided to throw this “Power Pop Plus” YouTube playlist together. Hope you dig it.
