Spaced-Based Powerpop Playlist

Over at the Facebook I Love Power Pop group, Adrienne Meddock of The Beef People issued a challenge: "Can you pick 5 power pop songs with a space theme for my contest over at my blog?" The answer: Why, yes, yes, we can, and then some. Since she herself came up with a list of 13, so did we. It could have been much, much longer, but this'll do for now. BTW, we realize that final song isn't really pure double p, but it's close enough and besides, it touches our tiny, alienated hearts.

Update, a few hours later: A hearty "ribbit" to one TubaFrog for the recommendation of Zolar X, now snuggled into and pushing the number of songs in the mix to 14.

2018 Powerpopulist Faves

Good moves from Bad Moves - and lots of others.

Behold and behear our very favorite powerpop, janglepop, indiepop, psychpop, and whateverpop songs from 2018. We decided to list these alpha songs in alpha order, with one exception: our favorite song of the year, Bad Moves' "Cool Generator," is at the top of the list. All the "The" bands' songs are down in the "T" range. As sometimes happens, Playmoss wouldn't accomodate several songs, so we've put them in their own widgets under the Playmoss widget. Songs Playmoss wouldn't identify by Artist Name and Songname are listed below the widget. Sometimes Playmoss balks at playing songs from Bandcamp, so if this happens, just click on the Bandcamp play arrow, and things should work out fine.

#2 - Ama - Love Demons
17 - Dot Dash - TV - Radio
19 - The Left Outsides - Clothed in Ivy Obscured by Dust
33 - J.F.K - Feel It Again
40 - K7s - Go Away
41 - K7s - It's The CIA
42 - K7s - Listen to My Heart
50 - Michael Simmons - No More Girls
59 - Rabbit Holes - We've Got Drugs, We've Got the Power
61 - Sauropod - Ripping
72 - Swingin' Utters - Human Potential
86 - The Faux Derix - Little Annie Meggs
97 - The Orange Kyte - Anti-Establishment Haircut
121 - Van Go - Live Through This

For you of the Spotify persuasion, we're also posting a widget for that site. Not all of the songs available at Playmoss were also available at Spotify, but most were. Spotify put the songs in a slightly different alphabetical arrangement, but this shouldn't cause many problems.

It's been a fun year musically, and we hope you find lots of songs you already like and some that might be new to you. As happened last year, we'll probably find some goodies we overlooked once some of our favorite music experts post their fave lists, so we'll be updating accordingly. (Truth to tell, we've already been doing that, so shhhhhh.) Please feel free to give feedback and make further suggestions of your own faves in Comments.

Happy New Year and here's to continued musical discovery.
