More Musical Meme Madness from Scalzi
John Scalzi asks what we have in our iTunes that is "perfect pop" of three minutes' duration:
Found Love - Boz Scaggs: funky, bluesy, and it SWINGS. It's not pop, though.
Since You Asked - The Singers Unlimited: Hell no. Four voices multiplied into impossible eleventy-million-part harmonies by an insane genius for whom a 9-chord is just the beginning. No.
New Hymn - James Taylor: More harmony, sounds like a choir. Beautiful, but not pop.
God Only Knows - Jonatha Brooke: A chilly, somewhat eerie, delicate and strangely compelling version of the Beach Boys' classic. Perhaps perfect pop in its original form, but not here.
I got nothin'.
However, if you go to three minutes and one second, you get Stevie Wonder singing "If You Really Love Me" and The Beatles with "Something." Perfect.
