    Is it it just me, or do most, if not the vast majority, of these have strong/interesting backing or harmony vocals. Listening through this it really struck how many don’t rely on just a single lead vocal.

    Cheers,

    If you lived in New York State and were into power pop in the late 70’s early 80’s you knew these guys.

    Tom Petty on bass!

    Is he on the record? I pulled it out and no musician credits.

    Cheers,

    Starry Eyes by The Records
    Best Friends Girl by The Cars
    My Sharona by The Knack
    Should Have Known Better by the Beatles
    These were some of the first ones that came to my mind. I could keep going all night, I love catchy pop and even bubble gum rock.

    Lots and lots of great music on this thread!

    ....punk, jazz, or techno.

    Well, how about Help Me by Joni Mitchell?
