Our pal Steve Simels over at Power Pop got things going for me with his posts on Robin Zander and Del Amitri and two songs that I consider the very best kind of power pop. Both of those songs are included here, but I don't think this mix is all power pop. Not at all. It is chock full of hooks though, so I ran with it.
Enjoy "Playing Hooky #4."
