Purity of a Pop Song

One of my favorite pop songs is Sugar’s “Gee Angel”, partly for the purity and simplicity of the lyric

There’s nothing in this world
That I’d rather do
Than buy a set of wings
And fly away with you

That’s a beautiful sentiment. Everyone needs someone to fly away with.

Good Earwig

Ever since I did the last show, I’ve had that Blowoff song “Hormone Love” stuck in my head. That’s a pretty benign invasion since it is a fantastic song. Although I like Mould when he is dissonant and angry and bleak, between Blowoff and Sugar you have to admit that he can craft some amazing pop music that both rocks and is catchy as all hell.
