After countless years listening to millions of songs I’ve kind of figured out which genre of music consistently appeals to me most. It’s power pop, and any number of bands from Badfinger, Big Star, The Feelies, Nick Lowe, Teenage Fanclub, Squeeze, XTC and of course the criminally under appreciated Jellyfish. I guess the fundamental influence to all of these bands is The Beatles, probably the original power pop band. One day I’m going to put together a definitive power pop mix tape…and finally stop being depressed about all the shit I have to sift through to find a good tune.
