"PP 2": THE WEEKEND MIX
Has it really been almost three years since I posted a power pop mix? That post from October, 2010 wasn't your standard collection of jangly guitars and mellifluous harmonies. It was inspired by a previous discussion over at Simels' place. Check it out. Link is above.
This week I was inspired by our discussion on Teenage Fanclub and again what I've pieced together may or may not be considered power pop proper, but I think it comes closer than the first compilation from October.
As for TF, I want to thank you all for the suggestions. I created a mix using your favorite Fannie tracks. 21 songs, to be exact. Result? No change. Pleasant music, yes, but in one ear and out the other. I did really enjoy "Sparky's Dream" and "I Don't Want Control Of You." Quite liked "If I Never See You Again," sounding a bit like Alex Chilton fronting Buffalo Springfield. Overall, TF is just not for me.
