I remember when rock was young

I mentioned on an earlier post that the first time I heard Down in the Tube St Midnight by the Jam I thought it was a perfect pop song. I wonder what other examples Max might have? My others in a top ten are:

You Really Got Me by the Kinks

Penny Lane by the Beatles

Crocodile Rock by Elton John

Music by John Miles

Airport by the Motors

I don’t like Mondays by the Boomtown Rats

Drinking in LA by Bran Van 3000

Ocean Drive by Lighthouse Family

Hey Ya by OutKast

These are not songs I would defend. These are songs that, the first time I heard them I thought they were not just great singles but ‘Perfect’ in a pop doesn’t get better than this kinda way.
