Top 25 (Personal Faves Edition) Songs O' All Times, No. 4

Who Am Us has flattered me by suggesting that he'd be interested in this Top 25 to which I've referred.

Since I'm always interested in just such a list, I get his point.

I'll periodically touch on this. I know I'm incapable of winnowing to 25.

But I know tHAT this song is in the Top 25 O' All Times -- and maybe not personal faves, but Universal, Gahd-HisorherSelf's, NobodyDoubtsIt faves. . . .





Badfinger

One of my all-time favorites, too ...

Will never-ever get tired of this song.

This video is wonderful too for the way it highlights the surprising complexity of PowerPop that only becomes obvious once you try to play it: pitch-perfect harmonies, precise stops & starts that require the band to actually listen to each other, a lead singer whose guitar is more than a prop, a really tight band all around with no weak links, everybody working hard to make a joyful noise ... probably my Top 25 too if there's a rule that I can't have a Top 25 of nothing but Beatles, Kinks, Hollies & Who songs, and if there isn't there probably should be :-)
