Skinny Tie Heaven! The RBP Power Pop Top 100, Part One (100-51)
William Higham, Rock's Backpages, August 2001
Chiming and choogling, winsomely pretty and archly melodic, freshfaced and faux-naif... yep, it's that formidable sub-genre POWER POP, a blissful marriage of melody and energy that began with Buddy Holly, blossomed through Beatlemania, and continues to thrive in the new pop millennium.
RBP's William Higham nominates a ton of PP classix for your singalong pleasure.
