No. ABC?Greatest pop song?When Cher did "Jesse James"?You sir, are badly in need of some kind of pop song re-education camp with barbed wire and the Go-Gos...mikeyWho is most certainly not biplurs, and even if he was, is not self-medicating
Oh dream on. You're gonna suggest that Meatloaf song with the girl singing about getting hosed by holy water next.
No, but "I'm gonna love her for both of us", a Meatloaf song about a pathological sociopath who wants to fuck his best friend's wife is way better than some Jackson Five crap-aroobob-shabingbang...Capcha would like us to form a more perfect unnion
You meant "Stairway to Heaven", didn't you, RB?~
Pfah. MY favorite pop song was the greatest pop song of all time.
Well if your song was incredibly catchy to kids and grown ups, was all a double-entendre about fucking, had a good fuzz guitar, an awesome drummer and a real belter of a singer I might give it a listen.
Initialism:Pop Song.Phil Spector.

I don't know very much about pop music, but the best rock n roll song ever recorded was "Hooligan's Holiday" by Motley Crue.Oddly, from the only album they ever recorded without Vince Neil...
David Lee Roth was never a good singer, he just had funny mannerisms. Kind of a William Shatner thing.I'm on board for Hooligan's Holiday as listenable, but it's no best rock song ever.
Also Phil Spector did way more good songs than any conglomeration of Jacksons could ever hope to have done, but he didn't record ABC.
If it's not Hooligans Holiday, it's pretty much GOTTA be "L'il Suzie" by Tesla...
Be my baby-The RonettesThat is stone cold pop classic with Mad Ole Phil twiddling everyone's dials.
I like "All Grown Up" by The Crystals.
Don't know anything about The Crystals. Philosophy Question of the Day: Why is today's overproduced, marketing lead pop music so completely fucking forgettable while the overproduced, marketing lead pop music of the '60's is timeless.Capcha says "prose" which is as good an answer as any.
Don't know anything about The Crystals. The CD version has a horn break that's suspiciously two-toney. But again, ecstatically joyful song.
Has anyone seen the pin up art that Chris Muir has done for the Troopathon? It is at Bug Hollywood and appears to be a worthy event. Why can't he draw anatomically and gravitationally possible women???
Sorry about your eyes there RB. But these are not easy times for us all.That phrase "ecstatically joyful" is the answer, I think.
To get to the philosophical question...reasons things suck might be...1. Decent sound reproduction2. Singing as athletics3. No more Top 40 radio4. Stupid lyrics5. People needing to know music to make music6. Tape recording as opposed to cut and paste7. Video8. Porn
"99 Luftballoons" by Nena, bitchez
Too serious. Faux funkiness. No time signature changes allowed either.
Oh and she's not a good singer.
OK, "Walking on Sunshine," Katrina & the Waves. (Extra points for prescient band name.) If you're going to bring Nena into it. Also: "Tears Began to Fall," The Junior Mintz, & /or "Tell Me You Love Me," the Mothers.
99 Red Balloons is a great call, but I'd be talking about the Goldfinger version, not Nena's original.It's one of those rare, deeply interesting examples of a cover being significantly better than the original...
Some friends of mine would nominate this. Get well Chris.
!!! is the expression on my face, expressed in punctuation marks, when I read that Nena can't sing. Might also be spelled as "whaaa?""Walking on Sunshine" is another excellent call. Featuring Kimberely Rew, ex-Soft Boys, on guitar.I will also consider "Kiss" by Prince.
!!! is the expression on my face, expressed in punctuation marks, when I read that Nena can't sing.Come on. She and my kid would do about as well if each tried "London Bridge". "Walking on Sunshine" is a decent call, and "Kiss" is terrific.People care for nothing! No respect for human rights!
'Not Given Lightly' is it alright. The always astounding RB.You probably know about the blog but just in case
Young Boys. Young Girls.They ain't supposed to die on a Saturday night."I'm sorry I couldn't go,But I still know the song and the words and her name and the reasons."
Young Fresh Fellows sing The Kinks. Louder than the original, which sounds kinda dead in comparison.
You know, along the Seattle line, this seems like an ideal mikey song. Good words.
Hey that reminds me!Go look at this. I promise you won't mind the experience.But here's my question to those better versed in performing music than I.Is the drummer totally showing off on this track or is all of that appropriate?I love it, but then I like LSD and pipe bombs....
Is the drummer totally showing off on this track or is all of that appropriate?Totally showing off. Good drummer though.See also Jody Stephens in Big Star.
I get the feeling that "Eat the Rich" doesn't count. I would nominate "Do the Alligator" by Bill Direen & The Builders, since I'm in the video, but it's not on YouTube.Updates to the Knoxie Recovery blog here.
First Chris Knox and now Bill Direen. Any video with the Good Herr Doktor in it has got my vote.Who is this wheacker that capcha tells me off??
I am relying on Knoxie to make a full recovery.He owes me a drink.
Hell, Dok, I owe you a drink.Does that mean this rash is more likely to clear up soon?
ABC is a perfect pop song so none can be better but here are 5 that are as good.
The original of Eye Know can make me weepy under the right circumstances.
Clem Burke can show off whenever the fuck he feels like it. He's just that badass.Jody Stephens gets props for not writing "The India Song."
Y'know, Clem Burke had one of the hottest women on the planet fronting his band and he complained about not getting enough screen time.
