Power Pop!


Well, I'm back after a few days in Chicago on business. Lack of sleep due to long hours and a mild case of food poisoning have left it's mark.

But the heck with that!

For a special New Year's gift, I have compiled:

Bleedin Out's Power Pop record!

Yeah, they're mostly pretty obvious tunes, but hopefully they'll be somethin' on it that you don't have in digital format yet.

The ground rules were simple. One song per band and it hadda be a song that you can put on endless repeat... sorta like back in the day when you dropped 45's onto yer rekkid player. And it's a lucky 13 songs.

Hope you enjoy em! They're in one easy to download package.

The songs:

  1. The Records - Starry Eyes
  2. The Only Ones - Another Girl, Another Planet
  3. Superdrag - Sucked Out
  4. The Rubinoos - I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend
  5. Redd Kross - Lady In The Front Row
  6. The Raspberries - Go All The Way
  7. Ramones - Sheena Is A Punk Rocker
  8. The Plimsouls - A Million Miles Away
  9. Matthew Sweet - Girlfriend
  10. Material Issue - Valerie Loves Me
  11. The DB's- Black And White
  12. Cheap Trick - Surrender
  13. Big Star - In The Street

Thank you! I've been reading your blog for a couple of weeks now, and I love it. It's been ages since I last heard Material Issue and The Plimsouls!

Some true power pop classics here. I'm taking this one with me on a weekend trip tomorrow. Thanks!

Great mix... I have most of these songs-- but it's been years since I came up with a true mix.

I thought I posted-- awesome compilation.. Sheena is about the closest you come to mainstream.

Nazz Nomad said...

when the Ramones are the closest thing to mainstream, then you're doing OK!
I should have put up a Dramarama tune too.

I think a Big Star or Dramarama full post should be imminent.
