Top Ten Power Pop Classics

The following cuts are quintessential examples of my favorite subgenre of rock 'n roll, Power Pop:
  1. Big Star, "Back Of A Car"
  2. Game Theory, "24"
  3. Matthew Sweet, "I've Been Waiting"
  4. Todd Rundgren, "Couldn't I Just Tell You"
  5. The Who, "Pictures Of Lily"
  6. The Beatles, "Paperback Writer"
  7. Love Nut, "Casualty"
  8. The Safes, "Eternity"
  9. Material Issue, "One Simple Word"
  10. XTC, "Earn Enough For Us"
Now granted, this is by no means a complete list. And ask me again tomorrow, I'd probably swap out a few. But if you've heard even a few of these classics, you might have a fair idea what people mean when they talk about power pop.
