  • Pop Perfection

    This isn't a 'shivers down the spine' thread. I'm wondering what you consider perfect pop records



    Amongst many others, I think this is quite spiffing. Catchy as hell and a monster chorus

    Here's a tip - if you put out some horrible lo-fi recording that sounds like a Gorilla banging an antelope while using a vacuum with a bad belt drive to suck up a floor full of marbles and silverware - and folks don't line up in mass numbers to hop on your wagon... maybe it ain't us who don't "get it". - THX1138

        Probably no one here has heard of them, but I think Ti Sento by Matia Bazar is just awesome for dance-oriented pop. I love all the twists and turns, and the vocals are by someone who can actually sing.

        And also in the dance-oriented pop vein...Philippe Russo's "Magic Noire."

        "Magic Noise" and Serge Gainsbourg's "Javanese Remake" were the last songs I covered prior to covering "Black Market Daydreams"...and you already know what I think of that

          Some interesting choices there, Craig. Not at all what I'd expect from some ageing, gentleman hippy



          Whoever wrote BMD needs lessons in songwriting, though....

            I'm full of surprises As a friend of mine once said when I played him "Magie Noire," "You actually like that sh*t, don't you?"



            Well, yes...I do.

                  While I really need to comment on how good that is later, it is really good, I don't don't feel it really fits the category...



                  I love this, a pure pop song that... does something special for me... and in the spirit of a POP song, does for many others...

                    Everlasting Love- wow, fantastic. I've never heard that, but I swear I've heard that- know what I mean?



                    Pop taps into something in our collective unconscious, agreed?



                    But, by definition, does it need to be a huge radio hit? If a tree falls in the forest...

                      "Girls Like Me," Bonnie Hayes and the Wild Combo. Enjoy! Her entire first album, "Good Clean Fun," is 80s pop at its best.

                        WARNING: I apologize in advance for semi-hijacking this thread, especially after the pure pop of Bonnie Hayes; this cut isn't really pop. At least on this planet, where it would be considered "Big Beat." But on Alpha Centauri, this was #1 for six months on the Kaznixa charts. It was also popular to play at funerals, as sometimes people would come back to life because they just HAD to move their butts.



                        Cirrus, "Drop the Break."

                          If "twists & turns" create "pop perfection"; I further submit : Marshall Crenshaw
