I have a reason for asking.
It has something to do with the foreword I'm writing to a certain book by a certain blogger I know, in case you were wondering.
|The Lovin' Spoonful - You Didn't Have To Be So Nice .mp3|
|Found at bee mp3 search engine|
The song, of course, is from late 1965, which means -- historically -- that it's a little ahead of its time, genre wise.
So where do I come down on the question? Hmm. Let's see.
Gloriously melodic? Check.
Angelic harmonies? Check.
Great guitar riff? Check.
The drummer is totally kicking it? Check.
Yep -- it's power pop.
