Few things can get me in a good mood as quickly as a perfect power-pop song,
Turn on Badfinger's "No Matter What" or The Raspberries' "I Wanna BeWith You," and I'm good.
Power-pop is a genre that never really goes away, but there are a few works that simply stand apart. Jellyfish's second release from 1993, Spilt Milk, is one such gem.
I don't recall what led me to buy this title, whether it was in-store play or a review. I do know I got it at Compact Disc World in south Jersey (route 70, forget the town, the store closed a decade or so ago, very sad).
I still spin this one frequently, and sprung for the deluxe reissue a couple of months ago (needed all those bonus tracks even though most of them were on the box set I bought years ago).
Here for your listening pleasure is a classic song from a classic record.
